Resolve to make a positive change in your life!

 

​Resolve is a four-week course designed to help you make life-long positive changes. Each week, delegates explore what the experts have to say, talk to other delegates about what they think and engage in a variety of practical exercises to help them accomplish their goals.

 

The four videos feature a number of experts from various professions, including doctors, psychologists, professors and religious leaders. They also include advice on how to make sustainable resolutions and short vignettes to stimulate conversation.


Session 1—Looking after your body


Session 2—Strengthening your mind


Session 3—Inspiring your soul


Session 4—Deepening your relationships

Happiness is the Holy Grail of contemporary culture.


A quick search on Google gives you 340 million hits for happiness. There are over 56,000 books titles in print exploring the theme.

 

The Happiness Lab is a six week experiment that enables delegates to explore what psychologists, doctors and faith leaders say will make people happier.

Episode 2: Practising acts of kindness


Episode 3: Learning to forgive


Episode 4: Investing in friends and family


Episode 5: Looking after your body and soul


Episode 6: Developing coping strategies

Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

food,

a talk

and good conversation
