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, Claudia Wellnitz 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
  • cultivate positive qualities which act as your inner resources
  • become more aware of and better able to work with your thoughts, emotions and feelings
  • 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

Azione, Riflessione e Trasformazione: un percorso verso una vita completa 1 con Claudia Wellnitz
Questo programma propone un’indagine sistematica su come vivere una vita più soddisfacente e significativa nel ventunesimo secolo. Il programma esplora tre tematiche tra loro interconnesse:

La felicità interiore – come un quadro etico di valori umani fondamentali, quali la gentilezza e il coraggio, possa essere coltivato, interiorizzato e messo in pratica nella vita quotidiana, per creare le cause della felicità duratura e genuina.

Il buon cuore – come l’empatia e la compassione possano essere sviluppate attraverso pratiche semplici, per coltivare relazioni più positive e premurose nei confronti della famiglia e della società.

La chiarezza mentale – come l’addestramento all’attenzione e alla consapevolezza aumenti la nostra abilità a liberarci da abitudini mentali disturbanti e consenta di aprirci a scelte positive per la vita moderna assai complicata.
