Workshop 1: Staying connected

Positive inspiration, understanding challenges and responses, exploring what keeps us grounded and connected to ourselves and each other

What to expect

A group of likeminded people interested in connecting and learning

We will start with introductions and welcomes along with a group agreement and guidance about how to learn on line. Your tutor will guide you through a range of conversations and activities – all you will need is a computer/smart phone, internet access, pen and paper and a curious mind.

Before the first session please think about two things;

  1. Someone that inspires you and why, it can be anyone at all – past or present – think about the reasons they inspire you
  2. Be ready to share 1 thing that has challenged you in the last 2 weeks and 1 thing you would like to celebrate

Learning will unfold during the session around creative connection, what keeps us grounded and where we need to focus our attention. Will we talk about “roots” and connection.

At the end of the session your tutor will ask you to do a little bit of thinking and writing between Workshop 1 and 2 (no essays! Just a little bit of reflection)

Workshop 2: staying well

Exploring 5 ways to wellbeing and 6 pillars of resilience

After saying good morning, we will discuss the little bit of writing that people have done in between workshops.

Your tutor will share some insights into resilience by exploring the 5 ways to wellbeing and the 6 pillars of resilience (all of which will be supported by offline resources available on the CoLab website) in conversation with the learning group.

We will explore the mind and body partnership and talk about what next.
