Do you harbour a secret desire to pound the earth as a flamenco dancer? Do you want to take up the ancient art of bookbinding and work from home? The recession has challenged many of our personal values. As a result, many of us are now reappraising the things that really matter to us.
Whether it’s revisiting an old hobby or skill, making time for ourselves, or finding inspiration in arts and crafts, we are placing renewed emphasis on living a more enriched life.
For some of us, that may lead to an enterprising new business driven by personal values. For others of us, it may be about mastering French haute cuisine as a weekend pursuit.
While our classes on finding a job you love and making a difference deal with specific issues of career and social action, this class explores our potential in a more free-form, imaginatively free-wheeling way. Above all, it aims to help participants locate their principal passions and grow their seed ideas into absorbing leisure activities or even a change of vocation.
Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.
These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They are limited to 25 people and include a mix of lecture and group activity and conversation. Optional homework is provided for those interested in further study.
