As part of Mental Health Month, Green Square Library is hosting the Big Feels Club.
Ever feel like you have to dress up in office drag just to make it to work? Or that parties are a form of socially-sanctioned torture (just with better snacks)?
Join us for an interactive, 90-minute workshop hosted by Honor Eastly and Graham Panther. They’re 2 sensitive cats who’ve done all the group therapy, self-help, and spiritual cleansing money can buy.
Our question for this session: Does everyone else find life this hard? You’ll get to chat in small groups, and hear how other people make sense of the life plus feelings equation. After the session, join the Big Feels community online to continue the conversation.
This isn’t a therapy session. There’s no unpacking your darkest secrets. It’s more like a philosophy tutorial, except without that one guy who thinks he knows everything. Big Feels isn’t a mental health service and doesn’t provide counselling. We’re just other people who feel those big feelings.
Big Feels Club
This Melbourne-based initiative is for anyone trying to make sense of the messiness of being human. Funded by private philanthropic support, and fee-for-service engagements, Big Feels are auspiced by the Self Help Addiction Resource Centre.
