The South Thames College Seva Project holds 'Lets Talk' workshop day for learners

IMG 1412 re processed

Seva project is a social project by South Thames College staff and students working in collaboration with expert practitioners to address various social issues. The project first launched in June and has since been growing. On 1st October we held a  ' Let's Talk' Seva Event at South Thames College where students participated in a variety of workshops. Workshops and seminars conducted as part of Seva project assist in raising awareness, tackle stigma, and make mental health a normal part of everyday coversation. It is about exploring what we can do both as individuals and as a community to build a positive culture around mental health.

During the 'Let’s Talk' day we had external visitors come into the college and run a Series of workshops and classes promoting good mental health and wellbeing. The workshop sessions were all very interactive, for example ISCKON held a drama & interactive session, ODISI Dancing, ran a session utilising Indian classical dance and music for the purpose of awakening and exhilarating yourself. Aquarian yoga and healing therapies attended to run a session for our students. Black Minds Matter facilitated a ‘being the best you’ workshop, dealing with healthy living.

Students also enjoyed a special performance by Constança Quinteiro, a Portuguese singer-songwriter that tells tales and speaks the truth. With a soft spot for soulful tunes and meaningful lyrics, she aims to inspire and empower other people and make a difference.

From as far back as Fabs remembers he always felt a desire and a strong pull to study and research universal and spiritual truths. He has described that purpose to be a life dedicated to helping and encouraging people through his music and through his life. "I had a really nice experience performing and engaging with the students and staff from south Thames college. It was a privilege to be invited to take part in the Seva Project and I look forward to seeing the impact that Seva Project will have within our community." Fabio Jose Sousa
