Are you feeling overwhelmed by the massive issues facing our people and planet today? Do you want to take action, but struggle to know what you can really do to make a difference? Do you want to learn how to improve your wellbeing, and the wellbeing of others?

Our July Dreamshop is all about empowering you with the skills and tools to take action on stuff you care about. Whether it’s mental health, climate change, discrimination, or gender equity, we believe you can create a positive impact.

You spoke. We heard. Our new and improved Dreamshop gives you more time with our experts to explore the workshops topics! You’ll have 3 x 35 minute workshops to explore:

👊 How to use story-telling to engage and inspire

👊 How to develop a mindfulness practice to keep your self-care in check when changing the world

👊 How to engage different people around an issue you care about to take action, together

If you're a tradie, creative, entrepreneur, professional, student, parent, volunteer, freelancer or anything in between, our events are a place for you to connect with new people, find inspiration, and learn something new.

Victoria Hood | Founder of Mindful Mum Aotearoa

Vic is super passionate about all things growth. After completing a post-grad Psychology at Canterbury, she worked in mental health and addiction before moving to contract work teaching mindfulness in schools.  From here, Vic realised how many others could benefit from growing in their mindfulness practice and set about running mindfulness based workshops throughout New Zealand.  She is a big believer in the Universe doing its thang but also a bit of a science and data nerd. Working full time in mental health, studying health leadership part-time and hanging with her three kiddos, Vic knows how hard the juggle can be and just loves helping others to become more mindful and keep their sh*t together.
