Moodwatchers: The Psychology of Renewal (March 2022, Online)

This is a brand new seminar with Shane Martin about psychological renewal as people adjust to living and working in uncertain times.

This pandemic has tested people like nothing we have ever experienced before. Our world has changed forever. Despite the success of the vaccination programme cases continue to rise. We cannot plan for the future with the degree of certainty we were accustomed to. There is a prevailing sense of insecurity affecting many people even at a subconscious level.

In this brand new seminar Shane will explore the psychological consequences of this pandemic and offer ways to learn from the experience and turn a new page. We need to take stock of what has happened but also move forward with a renewed focus on what matters about this life we live. We need to learn not only to rise to the challenges of COVID-19 but to the inevitable challenges that lie ahead. We need a sense of purpose in our life and work. We need to harness hope and resilience within ourselves.

Humans have an innate capacity to cope much better than they think. Some very simple strategies/habits can foster the traits we need for coping. This pandemic presents us with an opportunity to renew ourselves spirituality but also to help us balance our lives better. We can learn to relax better and tackle anxiety with more confidence.

This seminar is a ‘must have’ in the times we are living in.….
