Portmarnock Community School Adult Education Department:
This 8 week Personal Development course blends together elements of mindfulness, photography, art and writing to assist participants to reconnect and align themselves with the lives they wish to lead. A supportive class atmosphere will be created where participants are encouraged to explore areas of their choosing. Classes are not therapeutic in nature – the focus is on creativity, humour and exploration in
a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Participants will complete weekly tasks / activities which can be used to build up a portfolio.
Class one is an introduction to the four disciplines and how we will be using them as starting points. Classroom rules, confidentiality and
what’s expected from participants.
