Develop practical skills to help you live a balanced
and constructive lifestyle.
Living a fast-paced life in today’s world often means that we are being asked to juggle a wide variety of situations and activities. Without the proper training, we don’t necessarily know how to internalise these experiences in a constructive and healthy way. This can lead to increased stress, anxiety and various problems in how we relate to others. In this introductory program, you will learn a variety of basic contemplative techniques which you can use to bring greater balance into how you approach the many ups and downs that life has to offer. Our practice-oriented approach provides you with first-hand experience for how to engage with these techniques and successfully integrate them into your daily routine.
This program aims to:
- increase your awareness of the different aspects of your personal experience that influence your general sense of wellbeing
- foster constructive motivations that are conducive to genuine happiness
- introduce you to a wide variety of contemplative techniques and develop the confidence to practice them on your own
In this course you will explore the relationship between your desires and the types of results that those desires produce. Through discussion and reflection, you work to develop a constructive vision for your life that will allow you to truly flourish as a person and to realise your potential to experience lasting genuine happiness.
The mind is the foundation for how you experience the world. In this course, you will learn how to train the mind through the practice of meditation. By cultivating a mind that is relaxed, stable and vividly aware, you increase the quality of your experience and improve your capacity to work with your reality in a constructive way.

In this course, you will learn to investigate different aspects of your experience in order to develop a clear understanding of their nature. Through closely observing these phenomena, you will develop insights that can help you to make informed choices that are beneficial for both yourself and others.
