The Art of Sense Foraging – 2-half days
October 6, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - October 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm BST
If “life is about the journey, not the destination”, why are we so obsessed with getting places? In this session, Prof. Farb will discuss emerging research on how we can integrate age-old wisdom to help cope with the frenetic pace of modern life.
Beginning with a discussion of what goes wrong when we become overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, and depression, we will turn to the research on the amazing human capacity for flourishing even in a life filled with adversity.
Key to this process is the ability to restructure how we relate to experience in each moment. We will discuss how some small shifts in our approach to the everyday can sow the seeds for personal transformation.
Supported by cutting-edge research from psychology and cognitive neuroscience, this workshop aims to provide some insight into how a little flexibility in our approach to life’s problems can give us the leverage needed to move from ‘just surviving’ to living an engaged and valued life.
Training will take place over two four-hour sessions on Thursdays: October 6th and 13th, 1600pm – 2000pm UK time
