    How To Deal With Anxiety

    7 – 9:30 PM | WORKSHOP
    MON 15TH APR

    Breathe. Anxiety is not a life sentence.

    What Makes You, You

    In the moment, anxiety feels like a roadblock. You literally can’t see past that fear or thought to the point where you quickly arrive at worst-case scenarios, often manifesting in the physical form; panic attacks, a tight chest, breathlessness… Sometimes without an obvious trigger. It can seriously wear you out.

    But there’s plenty you can do to help. In this dynamic workshop, we’ll introduce you to proven strategies for managing your anxiety and explore the effects it’s having on your body, mind, behaviour and relationships. With that awareness, you can start to transform your relationship with anxiety, and your life.

    Led by Indigo psychologist Rashida Dungarwalla, you’ll begin to understand how anxiety is holding you back, discover practical tips for managing your mind and learn how to train that negative little voice in your head to become more self-compassionate.

    What You Will Learn

    • How to engage with your anxiety differently
    • How our minds are wired to be anxious and the role that evolution plays
    • How your body naturally responds when anxious
    • How to use your breath to manage anxiety
    • Relaxation techniques to help manage anxiety
    • How to use self compassion in moments of pain
    • Insight into your anxiety and how it affects your thoughts and behaviour
    • An awareness of how anxiety affects your relationship with yourself and others

    RASHIDA DUNGARWALLA
    Psychologist

    Rashida is a psychologist here at The Indigo Project. Her youth was spent living all over the world, in particular England and Kenya, exposing her to various cultures and ways of living, and developing her understanding of how different cultures create connections and experience emotions.

    Rashida was drawn to the field of psychology at a young age, curious about people’s journeys as she tried to make sense of her very own psyche.  Having gone through her own mental health journey, she believes that working on your mind allows you to reflect, develop and grow.

    Feel music like never before.

    A girl listens to music and journeys into her mind

    When did you last give music your undivided attention?

    Listen Up has become a cathartic process for many; some describing it as a soundtracked therapy session. Offline, lights off, with phones away, you are granted the space to explore thoughts and emotions – untethered from the world. Some come for relaxation, others to process the past. Everyone is here for the music.

    Immersive Music Experience at The Indigo Project

    Turn on, tune in…

    You are guided by our head psychologist Mary Hoang, through an immersive experience that combines modern psychology and mindfulness techniques while taking a journey through music.

    Expect to enhance the way you listen to music, while heightening your awareness of the inner workings of your mind. We’ll open your mind and senses to the power of tuning out of everyday noise and tuning in to a world of sound.

    “Listen Up takes people by surprise with its emotional effects”
