Why is it so difficult to keep our self motivated? Even when we ‘know’ certain things are ‘good for us’ it’s hard to sustain our motivation. Often we set goals simply thinking that we ‘should be’ doing these things, but this way of thinking doesn’t really produce results. Instead of succeeding in our efforts we end up feeling bad. In this half-day course we can begin to understand the different components of motivation and then use this knowledge to form a kinder, friendlier, and more productive life plan. The course will include guided meditation, talks and time for question and answer. Refreshments will be served during the break. Everyone Welcome.

Schedule:

10:00–11:30 – Teaching and meditation

11:30–12:00 – break

12:00–1:00 – Teaching and meditation
