Frog and Henry

Posted on behalf of The Rose Hill

Frog and Henry bring a exciting night of unamplified dance and Jazz music from early 1900’s.


Formed in New Orleans as a collective of several street performing groups, Frog & Henry perform and record old dance and jazz music from the early 1900’s on brass and string instruments, with nearly every instrumentalist contributing to vocals. Most of their repertoire is dug up from forgotten songs dating to the dawn of recorded music, in the form of early dance tunes, or from even earlier 19thc sheet music. 


They’ve borrowed the phrase ‘string and brass band’ from the descriptions of the earliest dance and jazz bands; and in that tradition they feature violin and mandolin-banjo as melody instruments alongside clarinet, alto and baritone saxophone.  They’ve also designed and built a foot-operated tuba that allows one person to play tuba and six-string banjo simultaneously.


Featuring: Ewan Bleach - reeds, piano, vocals, Will Scott- saxophone, clarinet, Kermane Arken - violin, vocals + F.H. Henry - guitar, vocals, David Neigh - tuba-machine, six-string banjo.

Constructed Geographies is a new visual arts exhibition featuring new art work created in response to Sussex’s diverse heritage and population. The artists are: Maria Amidu, Akila Richards, Amanda Jobson, Rikki Tarascas, Judith Ricketts, Josef Cabey and Amy Zamarripa Solis. 


The artists work across a variety of mediums including painting, photography, mixed media collage, glasswork, textiles, video and installation.

The broad theme of the exhibition allowed each artist to approach it differently, working to explore the rich cultural heritage of the area and draw out stories from a range of communities. The exhibition seeks to claim a space for all in Sussex.


From the remains of an ancient African women found on Beachy Head to local histories in the African hairdresser in Eastbourne, the exhibition works to dispel the misconception that there is a lack of diversity in the region. You just need to know where to look.

The exhibitions will be accompanied by a public programme of artist talks, workshops and interventions, plus film, music, food and spoken word. Check gallery websites for all dates and times.

Developing EMDR Competencies: Troubleshooting Towards Accreditation

Posted on behalf of EMDR Sussex Regional Group

EMDR Sussex Regional Group


Developing EMDR Competencies: Troubleshooting Towards Accreditation


This skill-building half-day workshop is aimed at all EMDR therapists, whether you have just completed your training or are well on your way to becoming an accredited practitioner or are a consultant supporting supervisees through the accreditation process.


The goal of the workshop is to help therapists think about the EMDR competencies needed for effective and safe practice, where they are at with these competencies and developing them further.


The workshop will demystify the EMDR Association’s Competency Framework, by shining a torch on each of the competencies and what they mean. We will then focus in more detail on case conceptualisation within the AIP model, a competency which many therapists struggle with.


A live supervision session with an EMDR consultant will bring to life the discussion and link the competencies to clinical practice, through discussion of a real case.


Speakers:


Clare James, EMDR Consultant and Supervisor, Private Practice, Specialist in Early Developmental Trauma in Children, Adolescents and Adults


Ines Santos, Clinical Psychologist, EMDR Consultant and Supervisor, NHS- Trauma Lead for Brighton and Hove Assessment and Treatment Service; and private practice.


Kelly Cahill, EMDR and CBT therapist, NHS- Clinical Lead- Brighton and Hove Wellbeing Mental Health Service (IAPT); and private practice.


All proceeds from the day will go to Trauma Aid UK, a humanitarian EMDR charity. https://www.traumaaiduk.org/

Breathe By The Sea

Posted on behalf of Breathe By The Sea Weekender

Escape To the Coast... Blissful beachfront Yoga. Beautiful walks in natural beauty spots. A breath of fresh air and self-care.


£190 pp. Non-residential weekender - you set your accommodation price point


Escape the to the coast and join us for our Breathe By The Sea weekender. Set in and around Brighton’s beautiful East Sussex Coast line. A much-needed breath of fresh air, this deeply nourishing retreat is about unwinding and connecting the body, mind and heart through various yoga practices and immersion into the sights and sounds of nature.


This weekend is a real treat, taught by advanced level yoga teachers - Christina Christoph who teaches vinyasa, slow flow and hot hatha yoga at London's leading yoga studio, Triyoga, and Bec Milligan who is  an experienced yoga teacher specialising in nurturing restorative practices and a registered nutritionist with expert knowledge in self care.


We know only too well how hard it is to find a retreat that is just a train ride away, but that gives you just enough of an escape and deeper practce, to shake off the cty pressure and leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated; so we have designed this weekend to do exactly that. Whether you just need a well earned break, want to explore your practice, or just spend a weekend doing something completely yogic whilst breathing in fresh air and beautiful scenery, this retreat is for you.


We will practice in a stunning studio on the beach with views directly out to sea. We will drink in some of the South Coasts most stunning scenery as we take a long meditative walk to the sounds of nature. And there will be time to soak in the seasonal sunsets and enjoy each others company over great food ( suitable for vegans).


 This weekend includes:



  • 2  lengthy extended Yoga asana practices per day, including flow and restorative. 

  • Meditation and breath work (pranayama)

  • Yoga Nidra (deep rest guided meditation)

  • Sunset practices, from our beachfront studio where the sun sets over the sea

  • Walks in nature: along the South Coasts beautiful beaches 

  • Expert nutritional talk and other self care treats

  • Both days are inclusive of lunch and healthy snacks. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

  • Optional social dinner on the first evening (additional cost)


We’ve chosen to make this retreat non-residential. Our base will be on the beach in central Brighton. It’s up to you how lux or low key you go. Splurge on luxury, stay with a mate or find a cheerful B&B, there’s something to fit every budget in Brighton.


Our Retreat runs Saturday from Noon – 7pm, and Sunday 9.30am – 5pm. 


We want you to experience the freedom and joy of Brighton for yourselves, so evenings are free for you to discover more, or rest, and it’s up to you how much of a weekend you make of it. We have organised a group dinner in a yummy restaurant on Saturday night if you fancy a bit more company, but this is optonal. We've left enough time for you to travel Saturday morning, or make more of a weekend of it, arrive Friday night and discover the magic of Brighton’s evenings and famous weekend brunches. 


Couples and friends welcome, but please book early to avoid disappointment. This weekender sold out quickly last time. Book via eventbrite or email to book direct.
