The first Awakening Joy course for 2020 starts on Thursday 6 February! The five-month course includes 10 face-to-face group sessions held fortnightly on Thursdays from 7pm to 9pm at the Shiatsu College in Brunswick East. Groups are limited to 15 people.
Today, as we are bombarded with messages that heighten our fear and sadness about the world, it’s more vital than ever to understand the importance of joy as a central aspect of spiritual practice. We need to remember how to stay connected to that place inside us that makes life worth living. Our own cultivation of wellbeing and joy can become our gift to a troubled world.
Presented in a user-friendly way, the course teaches basic principles and supportive practices for you to develop your natural capacity for wellbeing and happiness. Techniques include developing gratitude, learning to love yourself, opening up to the hard stuff as a path to joy, and finding joy in the happiness of others.
