This week’s meeting will be entirely devoted to the Sharing and Discussion of Personal Music Favourites
“Where words leave off, music begins.”
― Heinrich Heine
― Heinrich Heine
During this week’s meeting we will be sharing some of our own personal musical favourites with the group. As we share we can let the music speak for itself or we can divulge how and why these songs have come to be dear to us. Any music that you would like to share you can bring on a CD with you and we’ll play it or you can send by reply email to me the name of the song and the artist who sings it and I’ll find a copy through a subscription music service. Feel free to send multiple selections and we’ll get to as many as we have time for! The questions below can be used for inspiration as you think of what you’d like to share.
1. Do you have a song for a field in July? Or maybe a lonely song from Christmas.
2. Does a song make you dance and move and make you feel a groove?
3. Or maybe a road song from sitting in the box of a pickup truck heading home after school?
4. Do you have a go to song for the tough times?...
5. Or just a song bringing a sweet memory to share.
About the From Recovery to Discovery (FR2D) Mental Health Peer Support Group
The FR2D Mental Health Peer Support Group is special because it moves beyond the expectation of simply existing with minimal symptoms of mental illness. Our message is that we all have the opportunity to manifest our strengths, to recover a sense of empowerment, and to live with meaning and purpose. Through the mutual sharing of our own wisdom and experience, we are reminded to reach for hope and fulfillment in our lives, and to help one another realize our potential.
The FR2D Mental Health Peer Support Group is open to anyone living with any type of mental illness or mental health problem. There is no cost to attend. The meeting format generally involves an interactive presentation on topics of interest to the group in the first hour, and a group discussion during the second hour.
