A Shelter for All of Me is a children's workshop that uses different approaches to help children explore their own bodies, which serve as lifelong shelters. Our body constantly communicates with us through messages like "Look out! This person is hurting you" or "I like this place because I feel safe here." By attentively listening to these messages, children can deepen their relationship with their bodies.


Through storytelling, games, art-making, and movement, children will learn how their body protects them, even when they feel uncomfortable and uneasy with what their bodies are telling them. The workshop will help them understand and trust their body’s wisdom, especially when dealing with feelings of fear and anxiety. Participants will also practise important skills like setting boundaries and understanding consent, empowering them with the tools to take action to keep themselves safe.

  • This is a children only workshop.

  • Parents can drop child off 10mins before workshop and pick up at same location.
