Jellyfish October Newsletter 2015

It is the most beautiful time of the year and we can’t wait to see you all agin this autumn!
Thank You to everyone who came to our Youth Film Premiere last weekend – it was a fantastic evening, with lovely response and comments about what our young film makers had achieved this summer – a beautiful, chilling athmospheric 18min film – which we will screen again in November – and it is going to Totnes Transition Film Festival as well http://transitionfilmfestival.org.uk/

We would also like to welcome lovely Jane Black who will be working at Jellyfish from October. She will be a great asset to everything we do and would like to do the coming months!

Life drawing session

Our next Life Drawing session is on Tuesday the 20th of October from 7.30 – 9.30pm. These sessions are with model only, so please bring your own materials. We are open for bookings from September till Christmas (three sessions £21 per person). The sessions are on : 20th of October, 17th of November and 15th of December.

Film Study Group / Film Screening Friday 16th of Oct from 7pm:

With our wonderful Life Drawing Exhibition on display, we thought that the beautiful, sensual film “Woman in the Dunes” by Hiroshi Teshigahara (1964) is the perfect film to screen and talk about this month.

An entomologist searching for insects by the seaside is trapped by local villagers into living with a widow whose life task is digging up sand for them. He eventually develops strong feelings for her as his hope for escape dims.

Entry £3 – bar open and there will be an intro at 7.20pm. You are most welcome to stay for discussion after the film:)

Parent Support Group by Joanna Watters (fortnightly)
From Wednesday the 30th of September at 9.30-11.30am.

The purpose of this group is to create a safe held adult place which recognises how demanding (as well as wonderful) parenting young children is, so that the “pinch points” can be shared without judgement, and given attention to help you understand more deeply why they happen and how you might respond differently. And also to offer a space for affirming and celebrating how well you are doing. We will practise deep listening – to each other and to ourselves, and I will give enquiries and guidance to support that.
We will not have childcare – so it’s an adult only space (unless someone is coming with a pre-walking baby – in which case let me know).

It will be offered on a donation basis.

Yoga Classes Wednesday evenings:

Every Wednesday from 6 -7.30pm with Kim Edwards:

An end of day yoga class to restore and strengthen us in body, mind and spirit.
With a focus on good, comfortable posture and breathing; strength and stability of core muscles; safe practice; overall integrity (physical emotional mental spiritual)
Over the course of a lifetime our needs change. The breadth and depth of yoga practices available to us means that yoga remains a lifelong practice. Research shows that in the long term yoga is more effective than other therapies in helping to maintain physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. With 25 years of teaching experience as a qualified yoga teacher and therapist and many years more of my own yoga practice, I aim to support each person as they explore yoga as a way of meeting their ever changing, individual needs.
