Improve Well-being in Life and Work

This training series is designed to encourage personal growth to improve well-being. The course will integrate experiential learning, private reflection and insights from a range of disciplines and traditions, within a storytelling style. This uniquely blends powerful learning approaches creating a transformative experience.

Three dynamic themes run through the series:
Awareness: personal growth and well-being begin with awareness. This course explains how to develop a sense of detachment to observe thoughts and feelings without judgement, and extend awareness to others, nature and time.
Reflection: We explore our experience of the mind and how our thoughts relate to our feelings. We see how to ‘follow the story’ of our thoughts and reactions to understand them better.
Change: Using a simple framework, we gain a practical approach to changing habits of thought, feeling and action, so that awareness and reflection can be translated into greater personal growth and wellbeing.

Throughout the series opportunities for private reflection are created. To support this, practices such as meditation are introduced. No previous familiarity or interest in these practices is presumed.

The six workshops are:
1. Being for Beginners
2. The Monkey Mind
3. Creating and Changing Habits
4. Habits of Thought and Feeling
5. Connections
6. Naming and Thriving
