The image of the tree has come to symbolise life across many cultures. It draws attention to the need for our connection to the earth in order to be able to grow outwards and upwards towards people and elements in our environment. Our holistic well being depends on our being rooted to earth and connected with ourselves and others.
This workshop will invite participants to experience multi-sensory stimuli. Through this experience they will be invited to reflect upon the way in which a sensorial connection with the environment can inspire connection with their selves and others. They will have the space to share their feelings and thoughts about how their energy can be shifted, and their wellbeing altered through these connections.

What if we met to exchange our stories, be they personal, ethnic, cultural, spiritual or traditional, on the use of herbs and flowers?
We, at the Proġett Ħwawar u Fjuri, want to invite you just for that! Join us at our fifth workshop, Qawmien, where we will meet together to exchange our stories on Saturday 26th of July between 9:00a.m. and 12:00a.m., at the Carmelite’s Priory in Mdina.
The workshop will be facilitated by Ms. Lou Ghirlando.
How to Participate?
If you wish to take part in the workshops, please send us a 100-200 word letter of motivation by Friday 19th of July on firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected participants have to prepare a couple of stories to share during the workshop, after which each participants will be given 20€ as a sign of gratuity for participating and sharing their stories with us.
The workshop, which is restricted to around 8 participants, will be facilitated to invite participants into sharing their stories of flowers and the use of herbs on the theme of the workshop. After the workshop, the stories shared will be used by the facilitator to compile a general narrative, whilst respecting everyone’s anonymity. The narratives and photography of the workshops will be reproduced at the Carmelite Priory in Mdina during the closing photographic exhibition of the project. The workshops will therefore be attended by a professional photographer, who will take pictures of the workshop, unless advised otherwise by the participants. In the compilation of narratives, the anonymity of each participant will be ensured.
