What’s it like in class?

This six-week course for adults is designed to be interactive, informative, uplifting and personally developmental!

We keep classes small (maximum 14 participants) and mix up the discussion groups so that everyone has the chance to get to know each other and really connect in a warm, relaxed atmosphere.

Online Learning

This is a virtual course, which means we meet online via Zoom.

Class is interactive (i.e. you’ll be talking in groups!) so you’ll need a good internet connection and a computer with camera and microphone.

Course Overview

Session 1 - Stress Response

Learn about what stress actually is, why we experience it and how it affects us, and discuss the implications of this in our lives.

Session 2 - Emotions

Learn about the function and value of positive and so-called negative emotions, and discuss how to harness the benefit of the positive emotions we experience daily to soothe our stress response.

Session 3 - People

Learn why we are wired to connect and explore how to feel good through generating and noticing micro-moments of human connection with anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Session 4 - Thoughts

Learn about what’s happening in our brains when they process complex information and ‘worries’, and discuss means of calming busy minds.

Session 5 - Self

Learn about how the stressful dissonance between our authentic selves and the demands of cultural programming can be dissolved, and explore being you.

Session 6 - Resilience, Hope & Possibility

Take stock of what we’ve learned on this course and use the final session to identify and develop our personal resources to look to the future and thrive.

Testimonials

I really think the value in this is the sharing and the talking about experiences....I feel a common humanity in experiencing all these chats with people essentially about our condition as humans. Previously I was feeling quite disconnected and it's made me feel a lot better
