Inspiring Solutions for Difficult Times

Tuesday 7.30 to 9pm

Class fee: £6 per class, £16 for a series ticket | Free for members |

When we examine our modern world we see so many problems and difficulties, and the conflict this creates is usually painful for all involved.

Similarly, when we look at our own lives we also face many challenging situations, and this can often lead to feelings of frustration or helplessness.

These challenges can sometimes feel overwhelming, and we may feel powerless to help either ourselves, our colleagues or our loved ones.

In this series we will learn inspiring, practical methods that will help us engage with our problems in a more effective way.

We will learn ways to improve ourselves so that we may improve the world around us, and in doing so inspire others to do the same.
