ALTEA’S Equality department announced the start of the workshop, Autoconocimiento 8 Dias y 8 Causas (Self-help Eight Days and Eight Reasons).

Due to start last autumn, this had to be cancelled owing to Covid-19 restrictions but will take place in eight sessions between 9.30am and 1.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout September at Altea’s Centro Juvenil.

The workshop, which has 10 places, is subsidised by the Diputacion provincial council.


It is led by Gema Rodriguez Ureña and sets out to help participants observe and learn about themselves “using their bodies, minds, energy and emotions” to prevent potential work-related ailments.

“All places are taken as this was already planned for August,” explained the town hall’s Equality councillor Vicenta Perez.

Nevertheless, if we see that there is interest in the workshop, we would consider the possibility of repeating it.

She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
