Think like a Tree - design for health, wellbeing and life

Summary information


We associate woodlands, forests and other natural ecosystems with resilience, longevity and harmony, but often struggle to experience these in our own lives.

By exploring principles derived from nature, this programme will guide you step-by-step through a design cycle that can be used for a wide range of personal circumstances – relationships, health, wellbeing, leisure and work.

You may want to make a significant change, some small improvements, or just want to be more content or effective in your everyday life, and whatever your circumstances this course has something to offer.

The programme comprises six two and a half hour sessions with optional activities to do at home. During the six week programme you will build up the tools and resources to complete a design that is personal to you after the course. All course materials are provided and you will go away with a toolkit of tools and principles that can be used again and again.
