"A gardener, whose attention is ever on the spontaneities of nature, acquires the gift of seeing differences, looks always for the merest changes in plant growth, or in the composition of the soil, the emerging populations of insects and earthworms. So will gardeners, as parents, see changes of the smallest subtlety in their children, or as teachers see the signs of an increasing skill, and possibly wisdom, in their students. A garden, a family, a classroom—any place of human gathering whatsoever—will offer no end of variations to be observed, each an arrow pointing toward yet more changes. But these observed changes are not theatrically amusing to genuine gardeners; they dramatically open themselves to a renewed future.
So, too, with those who look everywhere for difference, who see the earth as source, who celebrate the genius in others, who are not prepared against but for surprise." - James Carse (Finite and Infinite Games)
Learning is a natural, life-long experience that can yield numerous benefits such as higher brain plasticity, greater well-being and better health. The courses I have designed provide opportunities for you to understand the human mind, and to achieve higher levels of awareness, performance, and self-growth.
Transferability: Implementing reliable learning practices, through self-assessment, theory-based content, and a follow-up system so you can transfer what you’ve learned to your day-to-day life.
Eclectic teaching: using CBT principles through group coaching practices, ensuring that you can achieve the goals that are relevant for promoting mental strength, contextual performance or a sense of life achievement.
Flexibility: Continuous review and adjustment of the course content, so that learning goals can be adapted to meeting the needs of individuals, groups or organisations.
Ownership: the Power of Keeping Your Life at Reach (27 July 2017)
What is life? How should you relate to your own self and how do you fulfill the experience of being? The perceptions we hold concerning the life we live create a mental environment where our self can choose to grow free or to remain trapped between dismissing unconscious forces.
Choice is a product of our will. The force that may turn our expectations into mastery, our hope into courage and our health into self-growth.
Every mental diagnosis is nothing but a maladaptive way of living. Depression is a reaction to loss while anxiety is a constant fear of losing. In this context, the self is struggling to hold on while creating a coherent coping strategy by which the mind can experience a growing sense of ownership.
In this course you will be introduced to:
• The psychological factors contributing to the sense of ownership
• The most relevant mental actions we can choose to engage in for fulfilling every area of life
• The strategies you can rely on for mastering your mental resources and achieve greater resiliency when dealing with a negative life event
• A novel perspective by which you can always keep your life at reach.
