Getting There/What To Expect:

What to bring: An inquiring mind, dress in comfortable, casual clothing and bring a cushion/blanket (or sheet) to use when we do the relaxation exercises. If you have a bean bag that you can bring, that would be helpful but not essential.

Rhonda Emonson conducts workshops in a variety of settings and on this occasion has chosen the 139-year-old Kathleen Syme building in Carlton which was transformed in 2015 into the area’s first-of-its-kind creative, learning and community space. Meeting Room 2 at the Kathleen Syme Building will provide a quiet and confidential setting to learn relaxation techniques to those new to the concepts of relaxation, self-compassion and mindfulness.
