The Resilience Box
The first in our series of boxes for the Spring is named: ‘The Resilience Box’.
It offers a collection of stories, rituals and gifts to help us to cultivate resilience during these unprecedented times.
Each item has been responsibly curated by The Village as a ‘product with purpose’ and is accompanied by an authentic story of care for humanity and the planet.
Our unique & sustainable collections support small businesses and communities from across the world as we all tackle the challenges of Covid-19 together.
What’s even better? Profit from sales will be reinvested into The Village Charity, funding sustainable communities around the world.
Writing Resilience Workshop
A great experiential add-on to The Resilience Box. This 90 minute writing workshop led by Alessia Galatini will focus on reconnecting with our bodies and our minds through words. It's both an exploration of and an homage to the resilience that has carried us through these countless lockdowns.
Through writing prompts and cues, participants will be invited to write poetry and prose inspired by identity, connection and perseverance. No writing experience required and sharing is always voluntary and welcome.
