Boy Group | Body, Mind, Heart, Spirit | Wk 2
In week 2 of Body, Mind, Heart & Spirit we continued to explore what we like about ourselves and what it means to be comfortable in our own skin. The Boys started the session with a “zip, zap, zoom” game which they really got into. It was a fun way to introduce the importance of being in the present moment, making eye contact with those around us and being focused and intentional.
We transitioned into talking about our lows and highs for the week and it was really nice to see the Boys practicing supportive listening with one another. We then made time for the Boys to decorate their body trace images from last week and to write things down on them that described what they like about themselves and what their interests are. They then had the chance to share what they did.
In our debrief at the end, many of the boys shared feeling embarrassed when it came to talking about or sharing aspects of themselves with others, but they appreciated the supportive environment and many felt safe to do so.
It's hard to believe that we're already heading into week 3, but here we go! It has been so great to see each of the Boys ease into the sessions and I can see them each relaxing a bit more as we get to know each other better. See you Sunday 9/30 (please don't forget, NO Boy Group on Sunday 9/23!) and for the remainder of the series on 10/7, 10/14 and 11/4. As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments.
