Music and Nature for Engagement and Well Being

Informational Videos can be access at your leisure and will be released on the 1st Wednesday of each month, excluding August. The discussion workshop will be held the following Monday. Details of the mindfulness sessions will be send to participants ahead of time each month.

The Flourishing Programme consists of three elements:

  1. Monthly recorded videos in which Social and Therapeutic Horticulturist, Joyce Fitzpatrick, provides a wealth of knowledge and resources surrounding a new, dedicated theme. Each video is 45+ minutes long and the list of themes can be found below.
  2. An invitation to a monthly discussion workshop centred around the video’s theme. Here you can ask questions, gain new insights and network with fellow healthcare professionals. 
  3. An invitation to live Mindfulness Sessions lead by instructor Niamh Burke who will guide you in using visualisation and connection to the present to boost resilience and well-being. Niamh will link the sessions into the month’s theme, allowing you to explore the topic on a new level. 

The Flourishing Programme is run by Engaging Dementia to help healthcare professionals thrive in their current environments. Its key goal is to provide access to new strategies and practical resources based on music and nature to assist you in creating group and individual activity programmes for your residents.

As qualified Social and Therapeutic Horticulturist, Joyce Fitzpatrick has been setting up garden spaces and activities programmes for hundreds of residents in nursing homes in Ireland for the past 20 years. Throughout her career, Joyce has researched and witnessed the different ways in which nature and music can help people in developing and maintaining cognitive and physical resilience and self-esteem. 

Purchase of the 5 month subscription to the series will also give you access to our online portal and our first 4 informational recording – giving you 9 videos in total, with over seven hours of content!

  • 5th of October 2022: Nature the Inexhaustible Giver
  • 2nd of November 2022: Finding Delight and Awe in the Mundane
  • 7th of December 2022: Wooden Love Tokens, Memories and Caring for Trees
