BOOK THE COURSE

Course Description

The course not only combines philosophy, psychology and spirituality through various interrelated issues and topics, but also includes a strong practical and experiential component in the form of discussions, sharing of insights, reflections, and personal experiences, as well as practicing skills and competences learnt all throughout.

 

The course will offer the benefits of blended learning and will therefore be delivered synchronously and asynchronously. The asynchronous component will consist of practical activities and exercises that students will be required to work on, and readings to reflect upon, in between the synchronous meetings online. These resources will be uploaded on our Virtual Learning Environment. Commitment is an absolute must for the success of such a course.

 

The course is aimed at helping students understand the sources for holistic wellbeing, learn and practice the skills and competences to promote and increase their holistic wellbeing, reflect on important life experiences from a psychological, philosophical, and spiritual perspective, and develop resilience in the face of life challenges and pain that transpires from them.
