About the Living Wisdom School

Many people have found the Living Wisdom School to be a life-changing experience, gaining vitally needed tools to cope mentally and emotionally in a challenging world.  How are you doing in your world? Are you coping well and thriving? If you are just surviving, then this school will give you the tools to change, and to enjoy being empowered and in control of your life.

An understanding of one's feelings, and if each one is reflecting reality is vital to attaining good mental and emotional health.  The challenge firstly is to know and name what one is actually feeling, and this for many is a real challenge. Angry, or frustrated, or upset - but this only describes things when they have gone too far. What is the name of the deeper feeling? For example many people feel guilt, or ashamed - when there is no need to at all. If nothing has been done wrong then the feeling needs to be challenged for it's validity, and worked through.

"Is this feeling I am feeling about reality to me or not?" is a powerful question to ask repeatedly throughout life.  A feeling driven life leads to chaos in relationships, finances, workplaces and is a robber of peace. A single feeling can stunt our growth, stop us reaching our dreams, or finding a partner. What feelings are blocking your path to happiness?

The Living Wisdom School course is a great way to upskill as an individual, people helper, counsellor, minister or leader. It is also a wonderful way to set up the young adult for a successful and emotionally balanced life and sense of being in control!
