The Flourishing Life Blueprint program is in development. This program is a blueprint for embracing and relishing your life, whatever it throws at you. It will guide you through the process of personal growth - at your own pace, working with your actual life challenges.
It's all online, and consists of six modules with videos and practical activities that you can do at your own pace, and from the comfort of your own home.
If you'd like to know when we launch the program, pop your email address in here and join our Facebook Page here.
You can do just one module at a time, or you can let us walk you through the process step by step and complete the full Flourishing Life Blueprint course.
If you're not sure which approach is right for you, come over to this page to answer the question: "Where do I start?".
The Flourishing Life Blueprint
The Big Picture
What's wrong? Why aren't I happy?
Compared to most people who ever lived, we are safe and 'successful'. So why aren't we happy? What have our modern lives left behind that we need to re-create for ourselves? What does it mean to 'flourish' in life, and is this the same as 'being happy'? What does this path look like and what do we need if we want to travel it?
The human experience
If we want a different experience of life, we need to understand how our lived "experience" is created - how every moment comes about. Why do I get heated or uptight about things that others can brush off? Why are there certain things that 'hook' me... that trigger reactions in me that I can't seem to let go? And then there are other things that really energise me and keep me going that other people might not care about at all. Why is loneliness the 'modern malaise'? What physical aspects of life matter to the path of human growth?
How Life Works
The 3 Tragic Misunderstandings
There are three beliefs that mis-colour our lens on the world. They set us off in the wrong direction when looking for a fulfilling life. We scramble around in all the wrong places and then wonder why we come up empty handed.
But to see clearly we need to look closely at our own experience. And to look closely we need to slow down and pay attention. We need a mindfulness practice. We need to treat our own experience as the research project, and become our own "scientist of the real". We need to see for ourselves the factors that are at play right here, right now, including perhaps, our theories "about" it and what impact they have.
Resilience for the mind
The path of personal growth can be a challenging one at times and we need to make sure we're in shape to handle it. Our minds are the most important tool for this journey. They are a well-intentioned but only semi-skilled friend and we need to know how to manage them. They are 'Teflon for the good, and Velcro for the bad' - we need to know how to balance them.
Getting fit for the journey
Armed with our tools for awareness and resilience, we learn how to dismantle the conditions that lead us to live on auto-pilot, with our habitual reactions in the driver's seat.
This module gives us direct, practical experience in undermining real life issues that have us in their grip. Learn how to 'invite your demons in for a tea party' to release stress and stuck-ness in your life. And learn how to relish pleasant experiences without them becoming pleasure traps. This is a powerful module that has the potential to change your life.
Finding your "true north"....and walking!
At times in our life we become aware of a gnawing sense of not-quite-rightness. This is often the first shoot of awareness that we are not living in line with our deepest sense of meaning.
This module helps us identify our 'true north' in life - our sense of purpose and meaning, and shift our life and energy onto this path. It leads us through bolstering this with our strengths and productive efforts.
Here we also look at the primary enablers of making this path the trajectory for the rest of your life: mindfulness and growth.
