About the course
AVAILABLE ONLINE AND ONSITE
This is an official Breathworks course.
The amygdala, a primitive part of our brain, evolved to keep us safe and help us to survive. In the modern world, this stone-age mechanism still fires up at the slightest sign of trouble, whether it's a tight deadline at work or a personal financial problem. It is not designed to make us happy. Happiness has nothing to do with survival.
Happiness is however vital to our quality of life and is a skill, like driving a car or playing a musical instrument that can be learned. It's a skill that can stay with you for a lifetime.
By the end of this course, you will have gained a foundation in the skills of meditation, mindful awareness, and compassion. These are skills that you will be able to use throughout your life to bring happiness and a sense of calmness into your every day. It will boost your creativity and help you focus better.
The course is backed up by extensive research evidence. Thousands of people suffering from work-related stress, family and relationship issues, personal loss, depression, and anxiety have benefitted from this course over the past twenty years.
Adaptations of the standard 8-week course are available on request.
