In a day dedicated to mindfulness, Rose Eskafi will be kicking things off in a deep dive into self-compassion and the importance of remembering your ancestral stories as a form of healing, grounding and building resilience.
Through a range of individual, group, and paired activities centred around topics like challenging the ego, compassionate meditation, imagination, intentional daydreaming, and building self-esteem, we’ll learn the importance of being gentle with ourselves and each other.
The second half of the day will be led by artist Melissa Kitty Jarram in a hands-on workshop centring around memory, time, and their impact on our ability to recall events in our lives.
Drawing upon the meditative act of collective painting, drawing and mark making, we’ll be manifesting the spiritual learnings we’ve taken from the day into physical pieces of artwork to take away.
All materials for both sessions are provided.

More about Melissa Kitty Jarram
Working across digital and traditional mediums for clients such as Bethany Williams London, WePresent, Adidas and Nike, south east London based Melissa Kitty Jarram embraces the hardships of the female experience and the violence inherent in life through her illustrations, paintings and moving image pieces. Her work is suffused with mythology – an extensive source of inspiration that, to this day, still unearths the depths of human nature. To her, nothing compares to the level of expression that comes with the texture of painting, with improvisation, and with the sense of danger that’s tied to the possibility of making mistakes. Breaking ‘the male gaze’ is important to Jarram as she continues to explore the female form in her paintings.
