What to expect
Starting from your current perspective, through a process of individual and group inquiry in a supportive atmosphere, you explore profound questions around:
  • how you actually live in the world
  • how this can either limit you or help you develop in the long-term
  • whether you can change
  • whether you have choices
  • what makes a happier and more fulfilling life
  • what living up to your potential might mean

Using lecture, discussion, meditation, and group activities, Nicolas Brun will lead you in exploring these three themes that are the source of a more fulfilling and happy life. Additional materials are provided to support the integration of the course into your daily life.

The programme is also designed to help you:

  • increase your resilience

  • feel confident and equipped to make positive, ethical choices
  • learn how to calm and focus your mind
  • improve your ability to cultivate positive relationships within your family, workplace, or community
  • enhance your creativity and logical reasoning

What will people gain?
