Introduction

This course combines a unique blend of mindfulness and hands-on evidence-based tools for unlocking your true passions. You will be guided through a series of exercises which engage your mind, body and spirit which allow you to awaken to your dreams and ambitions.

Programme Content

Dr. Maria Quinlan has developed a course which draws on the work of key researchers and writers in the area of purpose, fulfillment and career. Combining their insights with her own research, she has developed a set of exercises and creative tools with which to guide you through the process of firstly uncovering your true passions, and secondly developing a set of practical strategies to start living your purpose.

The transformational power of yogic meditation is paired with tools such as Photovoice and Free writing for implementing change in your life. All the tools are evidence-based and have strong research to support their effectiveness in kick-starting transformation and creating sustainable change.

It is suitable for anyone who would like to create some positive change in their lives, big or small.

This course is designed to be a fun and creative way of getting to know ourselves, our motivations and our passions more fully, and then to make some concrete plans to consciously move towards the life we would like to be living.

It is particularly suitable for anyone considering a life or career change, starting their own business, or for students considering third level course options.
