Welcome to our website. We offer distance learning courses, resources and coaching that strengthen our ability to bring about positive change - in our lives, in those we work with and in the world. We seek to increase understanding about how resilience, happiness and wellbeing can grow, particularly in contexts where there are obstacles or difficulties in the way. Our goal is to pass on insights, skills and strategies that make a difference and that help us make a difference.
We are a social enterprise, aiming both to be financially self-sustaining and also offer something useful to the world. Some of our events are free, while others we charge for. We are still quite new, so this website and our activities are still being developed. Our courses currently address three main areas:
Personal wellbeing Courses for people wanting to increase their resilience, happiness and ability to make positive changes in their lives. Our personal wellbeing programme includes our Personal Resilience Training which starts on 17th March 2014, and the Training for Positive Change course starting on 7th May 2014.
Practitioner training Courses for coaches, health professionals, educators and other practitioners involved in promoting resilience, happiness and positive change in others. Our practitioner training programme includes short courses in Motivational Interviewing and Positive Psychology for Helping Professionals.
Planetary issues As personal, community and organisational resilience are importantly linked to the wellbeing of the world around us, our courses also look at how we can contribute to positive change at a global level. We offer trainings for people concerned about the condition of our world and wanting to strengthen their ability to make a difference. Based on the book ‘Active Hope’ by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone, our Active Hope Training runs several times a year, and our next group starts on 29th Jan 2014.
