Dealing with adversity report

So often life feels chaotic. There are things to do, people to see, work to be done, to-do lists to be tackled. There is global conflict and global warming. There is information and misinformation, competing voices, different points of view all looking for our attention.

There are obligations and demands, relationships to nourish, finances to manage, bills to pay, social media feeds to scroll and new series on Netflix to watch. Finding a sense of well-being in the modern world can be tough.

With all this going on – worlds within worlds demanding our attention – it can sometimes feel like it is impossible to find those few moments you need, to spend time where you can simply sit back, relax and be still. Understandably, finding peace is something many have been searching for throughout their lives. It may even be ingrained in humanity’s DNA.

This course will provide an overview of inner peace with some practices you can apply, inspired by wisdom across the ages, with sprinkles of psychological research. Yes, life often feels chaotic, but it is always possible to find calm within the storm.

My wish for you with this course is that you can reach inside and find that inner place where peace exists, despite everything that is going on in the outside world.
