How to Change Your Life
If you are living your life right, then a time will come when you sense the need to grow and fulfil your potential. Yet we can find ourselves poorly equipped to move ourselves forward, and seek insight in our stuckness through running inventories of our skills and experiences. Even less helpful, we ask ourselves “What do I want?”, and stare into a chasm of uncertainty and confusion, led by scripts of what we “should” be and do.
But the quality of our answers and our lives lie in the questions we ask and live. Success is less about a job title that fits, but alignment between our authentic selves and how we show up in the world. In a practical journey of self-reflection to align yourself and set meaningful goals, you will work through interactive exercises and there will also be time to reflect on what you’ve learnt. You will leave the day energised and inspired, with notes on your values and motivations and an action plan for your next steps.

–> Panpsychism: Is Everything Conscious? – Dr Philip Goff, PhD
–> From Ego-Centric to Eco-Centric: Changing Consciousness through Psychedelics – Dr Sam Gandy, PhD
–> Is Reality an Illusion? – Professor Donald Hoffman, PhD (via live video link)
