What's Happening Liverpool

Africa Oyé Festival

17th &18th June FREE 12.30-9.30 both days

Africa Oyé, the UK’s largest free celebration of African music and culture, takes place annually in Liverpool. Beginning in 1992 as a series of small gigs in the city centre, the event has gone from strength to strength, moving to its present Sefton Park home in 2002 to cope with demand.

With too many negative representations of Africa entrenched in images of war, disease, poverty and famine, Oyé seeks to redress the balance and highlight the fantastic range of cultures, foods, music and artists that make this great continent one of the most vibrant and inspiring in the world.

“This isn’t just the largest festival of African and Caribbean music in Britain, it’s the best” – The Sunday Times

Deeper Mindfulness: In Conversation with Mark Williams & Danny Penman

Join us for a fascinating evening with authors Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman as we hear all about their wonderful new book.

Mark Williams & Danny Penman wrote Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World - which the Wellbeing Centres Mindfulness course is based upon.

Join us for a fascinating evening with authors Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman as we hear all about their wonderful new book, Deeper Mindfulness: The New Way To Rediscover Calm In A Chaotic World.

There are moments in life that decide your fate. They ripple into the future and dictate how you experience the world in the moments that follow; either positive and uplifting, dark and chaotic, or flat and dull. What if you could recognise these moments before they seized control of your life? What if you could use them to set sail for a better future? What if all moments, big and small, could be harnessed this way?

In Deeper Mindfulness, Oxford Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman reunite to present a new eight-week guided meditation programme that takes mindfulness to the next level. Deeper Mindfulness reveals how the latest advances in neuroscience, combined with millennia old wisdom, can be used to transform your life. These discoveries open the doors to a deeper layer of mindfulness known as the 'feeling tone'. This sets the 'background colour' that tinges your entire experience of life. It is also the tipping point from which you can reclaim your life in an increasingly stressful and chaotic world.

Proven effective at treating anxiety, stress and depression, the practices in Deeper Mindfulness offer a new and more fruitful direction for both novice and experienced meditators. It also allows the rest of us to approach life with renewed strength, vigour and equanimity.

Our Time Time Bank

Who we are Richmond Fellowship’s Our Time community based time bank works with individuals affected by mental ill health already living in their own homes to receive assistance with day-to-day tasks and activities, such as learning new skills, recreational activities and social interaction. What we do Our timebanking service promotes social inclusion and empowers individuals by making the individuals feel valued as they are able to share their skills with others and learn new skills themselves. Timebanking also has a beneficial effect on both mental and physical health. We have monthly coffee socials where people can meet and some ‘trading’ of skills can be arranged – with Community Links Advisors maintaining regular contact with individuals. Individuals are actively encouraged to deposit and withdraw time and are coached into re-discovering skills they may not have had the chance to practice regularly. The timebank is an excellent model of co-production. It has members as opposed to service users and a steering group comprised of staff and members. Members share skills including home repairs, music lessons, travel buddying, decluttering, gardening, media and podcasting, painting and cooking. Timebanking activities take place face to face and online. Any skill can be exchanged and the only currency is time. Exchanging skills helps improve mental health and wellbeing through connecting, giving, learning, taking notice or being active thereby incorporating the 5 ways to wellbeing.

Who we help We create opportunities for adults living in the Liverpool postcode who experience mental ill health including stress and anxiety disorders as well as severe and enduring issues such as Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia.

Getting referred Individuals can self refer or be referred by professionals. Please call or email to request a referral form. All referrals must have one supporting reference from a health professional.
