Course overview:

Connecting with others, nature and other living beings is essential to our health and wellbeing. We are inherently a social species and having safe places, people and pets in our lives can help us heal and learn to thrive. Connecting is also one of the five ways to wellbeing, alongside being active, learning, taking notice and giving. We are all different but we all need some form of connection.

Course information:

This 2-session in-person course aims to explore what we understand by ‘connect’, as well as the benefits of connecting. We look at some common barriers and help you think about how you can work around these. You will have the opportunity to reflect on the ways you are currently connecting and consider other opportunities for meaningful connections that are right for you.
