A series of four interactive online sessions sharing insights and interventions to help us manage the phenomenon of loneliness.  We will review current knowledge, explore new perspectives and look at tested practical and reflective solutions to re-surface the joy of time in solitude.


Feeling alone has a significant impact on physical and mental health and can be difficult to admit to.  In the current climate of COVID-19, we are all being asked to cope with degrees of isolation in our personal and working lives and in our social and cultural activities.


This series of webinars will review current knowledge, explore new perspectives and provide an array of creative and spiritual tools to help us understand, transform and embrace this enforced time of isolation.

December 5th 2020          Being Alone: Isolation or Retreat?
