Dwellbeing- this is my word for what I offer people.
Dwell- to live in or at a specified place
Wellbeing- the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy
It has taken me nearly 30 years to realise that all I do is connected; whether this is making art, writing, designing places to be in, walking with others or running workshops.
My Dwellbeing offer was created in the CV19 lockdown. I had the realisation that my various passions were all connected by observation, imagination and a deep understanding of how people react to place.
I have something unique to offer and I want to share it, so I started a free Facebook page called 'Clare's Dwellbeing Group'. Do head over and join us if it seems like something you'd like. The group is for people who are interested in learning how to dwell well, albeit at home, in the garden or out in nature. I have created a kind, supportive community which looks at how people can feel more connected to the place that they are in, right now.
Next, I started a monthly subscription called a Dwellbeing Prescription that gives daily prompts to creatively connect specifically with the place in which you dwell. There are weekly 'lives' via Facebook and weekly creative activities for you to join in. Each week has a theme to follow.
I have another exciting Dwellbeing project 'up my sleeve' for 2022 that I will be very excited to share with you, nearer the time.
