- Discover your core values and how to navigate using them

Week one


How present are we in our lives? Our human mind wanders into the past and future scanning for potential threats or problems. This is natural. However, there is a way to train ourselves to be more present, more often.

Week two


Human evolution is a miraculous thing and our brains have had a huge part to play in our species survival. These functions are deep and ancient. Our awareness is now at a point where we are conscious of these automatic responses and we can learn to manage ourselves and change our behaviors, to live a more meaningful and compassionate life.

Week three


Words are powerful, they can make you or they can break you. The most important words are the ones we use with ourselves, on the inside. Everyone has an inner voice, and yes it can be very critical. Let’s learn how to cultivate a positive relationship with the voice inside and develop self-compassion.

Week four


Being in touch with our emotions is a superpower. It helps with self-regulation and self-responsibility. It also helps us to communicate about what we truly need to those around us. The more we work on our mental fitness, the better we are at maintaining mental clarity when consumed with emotions and be less reactive.

Week five


Our brain is like plastic, it can be remoulded, new pathways can be created, old pathways can become obsolete. To understand this is a great motivation for changing our ways of behaving and being. Every time you choose a new action or thought you build that new pathway and it get stronger and easier to access.

Week six


We don’t often take the time to really appreciate the good things about ourselves. However, there is research to suggest that this is very helpful for our mental wellbeing. So love it up, speak kind words about yourself and let your pride flag fly.

One of our recent graduates: 

"Introducing meditation to daily practice helps break down old habits, build new rituals, and open neural pathways. Practising gratitude helps create a higher appreciation for self, entering a flow state of being. Practice doesn't make perfect - It's all about progress"  

- Connor Adams
