Welcome to our website. We offer online courses and resources that strengthen our ability to promote resilience, sustainable happiness and positive change - in our lives, in those we work with and in the world. Our goal is to pass on insights, skills and strategies that make a difference and that help us make a difference.

Our online courses are being revamped at the moment. They currently address three main areas:

Personal wellbeing

Courses for people wanting to increase their resilience, sustainable happiness and ability to make positive changes in their lives and world.
Coming soon - 22nd/23rd Nov 2014, a residential weekend with Chris Johnstone on Personal Resilience, At Newbold House, Forres, Scotland. For details, click here.Resilience Flyer

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 six-week courses in Positive Psychology for Helping Professionals (next one starts 28th Oct 2014) and Motivational Interviewing (course recently finished, no date yet for next course).


Planetary issues

Our courses also look at how we can contribute to resilience, sustainable happiness and 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. Our next group starts on Sept 9th.

We also had a free webinar on Active Hope Book Groups on Feb 20th. You can listen to the recording
here.

We are a social enterprise, aiming to be both financially self-sustaining and 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.
