What are your hopes and plans for creating a happier and more meaningful life? Have you set aside time to delve deeply into what’s important to you and to set goals for the year ahead? This one-day workshop gives you the opportunity to identify your values and set goals in a key area of your life, such as relationships, career, health, spirituality, leisure or personal development. You will be guided through a step-by-step process to get clear on where you are now and where you would like to be in the future. You will also develop an action plan for success, as well as learning some valuable mindfulness skills to stay present and enjoy the journey along the way. We will also be practicing some secular evidence-based mindfulness techniques to help you deal with difficult thoughts or feelings that can pop up when we commit to change. Learn mindfulness techniques to boost resilience, stay on track and overcome fear and self-sabotage This workshop uses the principles of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), an evidence-based mindfulness therapy that helps people find their sense of meaning and purpose and effectively handle difficult thoughts or feelings that are part of our human experience.
