Would you benefit from developing closer relationships with family, friends and your community?

Are you interested in developing a deeper understanding of how others experience the world and their emotions?

How would your daily life improve, at work and at home, if you were able to respond to others’ needs in a way that’s beneficial to them and to you?

Do you need to strengthen your own mental and emotional resilience to prevent burn out?

Over the three 90 minute sessions you’ll explore not only how you experience and view the world but also how you relate to others in given situations – and how the choices we make each day can have a profound and wide-reaching impact.

Each session offers tools and techniques to help practice what we learn so that new ways become habits for us.

The three sessions will help you

  • Improve ability to develop positive relationships in the family, workplace, or community.

  • Increase mental and emotional resilience

  • Learn how to skilfully balance your responses and behaviours

  • Become more aware of and better able to work with thoughts, emotions and feelings.

  • Learn how to calm and focus your mind.

  • Cultivate positive qualities which become stable inner resources.

Expect to be active. If you want to achieve true transformation you’ll need to be committed to fully engaging with the wide range of learning materials and practices.

As well as a course manual, there will be audio practices, reflections, practical exercises, and homework assignments; all contributing to a truly experiential learning experience.

This secular course is rooted in Buddhist philosophy and psychology supported by scientific research, Western philosophy and psychology, and other wisdom traditions. It was developed by an international team with academic-level expertise in Buddhism, Western philosophy and psychology, contemporary science and experiential learning methodology.
