Active Health at Work: Brain and body presence

Active Health at Work: Brain and body presence

Date(s) - 25 January 2023
13:00 - 14:00

No. 1 Colmore Square, Birmingham, B6 6AA

Particularly amidst the demands and expectations of an increasingly “virtual” work environment, it’s all too easy to get disconnected from the sensations of our own body.  How far does our active physical health flow through to our overall wellbeing and brain-mind-body effectiveness at work?  How can we tune in to our bodies more effectively, using our senses and our physical awareness to create a healthier work environment?   Even when working remotely, how do we bring our whole selves to work, body, mind and spirit?

Our speaker at this combined City Women / City Men event will be Karen Hill.  Karen’s work as a PE teacher and Director of Sport has led to her engagement with Christians in Sport for more than 30 years.  Locally she helped set up Birmingham-based charity ‘Sport For Life’, changing lives through the power of sport. Karen is an Assistant Headteacher at Queensbridge secondary school in Moseley, arguably the most diverse school in south Birmingham.  As Careers Lead, Karen is keen to grow partnerships with businesses to help pupils prepare for working life.  Karen has always loved active participation in sport; she enjoys growing all things edible and floral on her allotment; and she worships at St Stephen’s Church in Selly Park.

  • Donations: There will be no charge for the event. However, ChaplaincyPlus relies on donations to deliver our vision to help people encounter the depth dimension of faith and life, so we are giving those who chose to do so the opportunity to support ChaplaincyPlus with a donation, when booking a place for this event, to enable our work to remain open to all.
  • Inclusive: This lunchtime session is particularly offered to the Christians across the business community and will be accessible to Christians of all denominations. We are also glad to welcome people of all faiths and none.
