Human connection is what turns strangers into friends and friends into life long connections. It's the number one factor in human happiness and one of the leading factors in long life.
Book your place on this 6-week program to build your empathy muscles, learn how to hold boundaries, support others and champion kindness. These are the powerful skills for leaders, friends, lovers and all human beings.
Sessions - Wednesday evenings (7.30pm-9pm AEDT) for 6 weeks over Zoom.
Each workshop draws on psychology and science and is a mix of learning, written exercises and break out rooms to practice human connection skills. Find out more about the outline here.
Week 1 - What is empathy? What are the challenges of building it? Learn about the science behind this skill, and how can we develop the ability to be present with ourselves and others.
Week 2 - What is the art of active listening and how can we practice it? We'll look at the challenges of reserving judgement and introduce the practice of self-compassion.
Week 3 - How do we ask better questions and have more interesting conversations? What are the importance of recognising emotions in ourselves and others?
Week 4- How does humour and play come into great relationships? Can we all be funnier, braver, more playful to create more laughter in our relationships?
Week 5 - How can we have better arguments and difficult conversations? How do we protect relationships and our integrity at the same time? What are boundaries and how do we hold them?
Week 6 - How do we start new friendships and build on them? As we get older what is the art of maintaining friendships in adult life?
Booking your place gives you access to all 6 workshops, either live each Thursday or you can access the workshop recordings later.
You are welcome to attend as many or as few of the sessions as you can.
At the end of each workshop, readings and exercises will be provided to complete during the week (30-60 minutes of activities). If you can't complete all the work... that's ok, you'll still get a lot from each session.
This is a full 6-week course. Registration closes 15 March 2023.
