Man About Town

Man About Town reduces social isolation for men in South Leeds. The Leeds suicide audit published in 2016 found that men are almost five times more likely to end their own life than women which is higher than the national average of three to one.

The project encourages men who may be socially isolated and at risk of suicide to engage back in to the wider community through a series of creative, practical and fun sessions including both music and the digital arts, with activities such as gig buddies, vinyl picnics and music quizzes.

This event replaces our Vinyl Picnic this Sunday. Meeting in the carpark near the cafe at 10:30am. Here's some information about what we'll be doing:The Nature Immersions are an opportunity to slow down and engage with the natural world in a restorative and inspiring way. Clare will guide a sequence that draws on the practises of mindfulness in nature, forest bathing and creativity. “In a session, whether in person or virtual, following on from the introductions, I will offer a sequence of invitations. These invitations allow us to slow down and become more mindful, present and grounded. We will subsequently open and refresh our senses including our imaginal sense again through invitation practises. There will be opportunities to gather in a circle together and share throughout the immersion. We will journey through a short secluded trail together allowing us to immerse into our own nature and the outer natural environment.The practise will close with a tea ceremony which is an informal practise that allows us to consolidate our new learnings and discoveries whilst returning to the regular/ mundane world. I often include a poem and harmony, relevant to the time of year, as we draw toward the end. “ ... See MoreSee Less

Look out for our new (and first) evening session music group looking at how music affects our mood and how small changes can have a really big impact. Lots of play and lots of theory. The sessions will be called 'Everybody Hertz' which came out of a conversation at the recent golf session and today's music group. It's fascinating stuff. ... See MoreSee Less
