  • Colindale library, 7 Bristol Avenue, London NW9 5NE United Kingdom (map)

The 16 Guidelines workshop provides practical tools for a more meaningful, fulfilled life. The idea is simple: to change the way we experience the world, we transform the way we think, act, and relate to others to find meaning.

What to expect

This 2-day Level 1 will explore key attitudes for developing a mindful culture in our family and community, in education, healthcare, or business. The focus will be on mindfulness, enquiry and ethics using the 16 Guidelines (16G) which provide a framework for reflecting on the ways we think, speak, act and find meaning in life.

Learn how to:

·Increase emotional resilience and confidence

·Improve relationships

·Achieve a greater sense of well-being and purpose
