First Workshop:                                  The art and science of love

How can we make our relationships last?

  Relationship therapist and educator Julie Sharon-Wagschal will offer an introduction workshop on the work of world-renowned psychologist Dr. John Gottman. A workshop grounded on what actually works in relationships that are happy and stable, based on scientific research conducted with thousands of couples over a period spanning almost 50 years. Julie will dive into what are the predictors of divorce, Gottman's so-called Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: criticism, defensiveness, contempt and stonewalling. Each behavior will be explored and antidotes will be provided.             

Second Workshop:                           Transferable skills

Do you know what skills you’ve acquired during your life as a student?

  People tend not to think much about these things. If you want to convince an employer that you’re the right person for a job or an internship, you need the ability to present your skills with clarity and conviction. This workshop will make you aware of the transferable skills you’ve developed in your studies, jobs and in your extracurricular activities. Furthermore, you will learn how to advertise your skills better in a letter of application or job interview.    

Third Workshop:                           mindful self-compassion

Unconditional Love

  Compassion is the medicine we most need as human beings to heal suffering and free our spirits. And while we each have the capacity for love and compassion, it is by intentional practice that we develop a truly wise and caring heart. An explosion of research into mindful self-compassion practice over the last decade has shown its benefits for well-being. Individuals who are more self-compassionate tend to have greater happiness, life satisfaction and motivation, better relationships and physical health, and less anxiety and depression. They also have the resilience needed to cope with stressful life events such as divorce, health crises, and academic failure, and even combat trauma. The reason I really know the impact of self-compassion, however, is because I have experienced the benefits in my own life. I am looking forward to facilitate this workshop for you in which we experience and explore how we can cultivate the quality of love by mindful self-compassion practices, and how this can benefit ourselves and the world around us.

Fourth Workshop:                           academic flirting

  This workshop teaches you the essential tips and tricks to overcome the misunderstandings in conversations by learning to use non-verbal communication which helps you to install a good connection with fellow students, family and friends.
You'll learn tricks to become a better listener, to establish a better personal network. Skills you will also benefit from in business life where personal connections often are the key in establishing long term relations and getting what you want.
We take it to a deeper level by taking a closer look on: How do you show more empathy in a conversation and give more attention to the other? Instead of stranding on small talk exchange: How are you? Fine. And you? We will teach you how to dive into the real deal, in how to make a deep connection that all starts with you!
