Think like a tree - design for personal circumstances, happiness and wellbeing

Summary information

Think like a tree six week programme:
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. Whatever your circumstances this course has something to offer.
The course has been designed to be appropriate for absolutely everyone’s circumstances and stage of life – whether you are starting out on life’s journey, switching direction, dealing with a challenge, or planning your future.
Come prepared to think, being open to seeing yourself and the natural world in a different light, and to challenge existing beliefs…

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

Beautiful and inspiring locations

The programme:
You will work in groups and individually to explore the three elements of the course:
the natural principles and nature’s patterns – learned from observing nature
the design cycle – allow us to put the principles into action
the tools – give us the means to get where we want to be.
