The Heart Bus is set to visit South Leeds next week (21-23 July 2021) as part of its national tour. The iconic American bus will provide an open-access, free to visit, community space and mobile workshop, creating a safe space for those who have been impacted by the pandemic. Every person who visits the bus will have the opportunity to walk away with practical wellbeing tools that will underpin the rest of their lives.
The Heart Bus will enable people to connect with others, experience the benefits of mindfulness and listening spaces and learn more about the technology of heart intelligence.
The bus will be at:
Hunslet Health Centre, Church Street, LS10 2PT on Wednesday 21 July
Slung Low, The Holbeck, Jenkinson Lawn, LS11 9QX on Friday 23 July
The bus will also visit Gipton, Rothwell and the city centre during the week.
Ri Ferrier, Managing Director of Heart Based Living Initiative comments:
“We are so excited to bring our Heart Bus to Leeds. We want to respond to the isolation and suffering that people have experienced as a result of the pandemic. We know that heart-based mindfulness practices can help, but they’re not available for everyone. And we want to change that. The Heart Movement has a radical vision to bring free wellbeing resources to people from all walks of life. We especially want to visit communities that have been impacted by Covid-19 and invite people to join us for a cup of tea, connection and a safe space for listening and kindness.”
Heart Bus visitors will have the opportunity to attend short workshops and taster sessions with experienced mindfulness facilitators. Sessions to choose from include the science of mindfulness, listening spaces and an introduction to heart intelligence technology using biofeedback. People can learn about breathing techniques to help calm the nervous system, and ways to cultivate happiness.
