Journey: Learning & Perspective

The journey implies movement, on the way and in the processing of arriving. Often, we focus heavily on the destination or goal we have set, not realizing the joy, experience and learning that comes in reaching any milestone. We actively aim to foster a growth mindset through this concept of journey, that learning comes from the being and to enjoy each moment along the way. How can we cultivate greater presence in the day to day, appreciate the ownership, decision-making and effort that comes with pursuing our goals, in leading a fulfilling life and in being the best version of ourselves along the way?

Living with Purpose: An Experiential Journey

Purpose is a beacon that can guide us through the darkest of storms. This is especially true in a culture characterised by a deep fear of uncertainty.

During this course, we explore what true, authentic purpose feels like, and how we can use it to thrive in both our professional environment as well as our personal lives. Within the session, we will explore several keys to enter the right state to tune in to that “whisper that lies in all of us”, as well as explore why many current approaches to finding purpose add stress to the lives of millennials and distance them from their objective.
