Flow with your Elements

FWE logo.jpg

Welcome to the world of "Flow with your Elements," where we embarked on an exciting and transformative Erasmus Plus project that resonated deeply with us all. In an ever-changing world, where the demands on youth workers were constantly increasing, it was crucial to address the risk of burnout and empower these dedicated individuals to thrive in their roles.

Our mission was clear: to support and develop the competencies of youth workers through a holistic approach that encompassed emotional intelligence, digital skills, and well-being. We understood the unique challenges faced by youth workers, whether it was the high-stress nature of their work or the additional pressures brought on by global crises such as pandemics.

At the heart of our project lay the belief that fostering resilience and well-being was essential not only for the individuals we aimed to help but also for the entire non-formal learning and youth work community. We wanted to see youth workers and their young target groups not only recognize the positive changes in their well-being but also build a strong sense of self-confidence.

But what truly set "Flow with your Elements" apart was our exploration of the Five Elements from traditional Chinese medicine: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. These elements were not mere abstract concepts; they were the keys to unlocking a deeper understanding of ourselves, touching every aspect of our being—body, mind, and soul. 🧘‍♂️

We delved into vital themes such as youth work for resilience, preventing job burnout, and the incorporation of ancient practices like Qigong and mindfulness tools with emotional regulation techniques. Together, we embarked on a journey of self-discovery and growth, embracing these elements as pathways to greater self-awareness and well-being.

Joining us in this remarkable journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and transformation, together, we flowed with our elements, nurturing resilience, and ensuring that the positive influences of our work resonated far and wide within the non-formal learning and youth work community.
