Life will never be without its challenges. Knowing how to create a positive attitude can change a problem into an opportunity, making life seem less perilous and more enjoyable.

Through discussion, reflection and exercises, this two-part course will take you on a journey to explore the power and influence of thought and the impact of positive attitudes. It will also look at the underlying spiritual principles that help maintain positivity in your daily life.

During the course you will learn how to:

  • Become a master of your thoughts and feelings,
  • Apply the gentle art of self reflection towards personal growth,
  • Tap into the natural positivity of the mind,
  • Develop greater understanding and acceptance of others,
  • Finish negative, energy draining language and self-talk,
  • Develop a constantly positive attitude.


This course took me much beyond the concept of what l thought would be covered in a positive thinking workshop, and all the better for it.
