Leidraden voor een Gelukkig Leven (16L) is een programma dat is ontwikkeld door de Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom (FDCW).De 2-daagse workshop wordt gegeven door FDCW-geaccrediteerde trainers en is zowel geschikt voor beginners in de beoefening van mindfulness, meditatie en emotionele intelligentie, als voor mensen met enige ervaring hierin.

De interactieve, ervaringsgerichte workshop is gebaseerd op een aantal universele waarden die gericht zijn op het ontwikkelen van positieve kwaliteiten in je leven, die zijn gestoeld op inzichten vanuit eeuwenoude boeddhistische wijsheid en modern psychologisch en neurowetenschappelijk onderzoek.

De 16L tools helpen je om een nieuwe wending te geven aan de manier waarop je denkt, handelt, je verhoudt tot anderen en zin geeft aan je leven. Het programma is ontworpen om ons mentale welzijn te bevorderen, emotionele veerkracht te ontwikkelen en te werken aan positieve relaties. Op deze manier werk je aan meer geluk voor jezelf en voor de wereld om je heen.

We reflecteren op vragen zoals:

* Hoe ga ik om met uitdagende situaties of mensen in mijn leven?
* Welke kwaliteiten kan ik verder ontwikkelen?
* Hoe kan ik compassie en wijsheid ontwikkelen?
* Wat is mijn kompas voor een gelukkig en goed leven?
* Hoe kan ik een bijdrage geven in deze wereld?

Bij de workshop zijn een basisboek, handouts en een set kaarten inbegrepen. Al het materiaal is in het Nederlands. Verder zijn er Engelstalige zelfstudiematerialen en een gratis app beschikbaar.

Zondag 24 November 10:00 tot 17:00 en Zondag 1 December
Kosten: € 150,- p.p.

Deze workshop is inclusief het basisboek, handouts en kofie en thee.

WHAT ARE THE 16 GUIDELINES?

The 16G are a practical tool for making life better. They provide a simple, robust framework for reflecting on how we think, speak and act, and for creating causes to experience lasting happiness and meaning.

The 16 Guidelines programme provides a simple, robust and flexible framework for developing empathy, compassion and resilience in daily life, suitable for both educational curricula and for personal and professional development.

The programme offers a range of practical tools and resources designed to promote reflection on the way we think, speak, act, and find meaning in life, presented through a mixture of exercises, group work and discussion. Benefits include:

  • increased emotional resilience
  • better relationships, at work and at home
  • a greater capacity for insight and personal reflection
  • a greater sense of well-being, confidence and purpose

Discoveries in neuroscience suggest that each of us has the potential to continue developing and transforming our minds, from birth until death. The 16G can help us to do this in a way that will benefit both ourselves and others. If you change your mind, you change your life.

The 16G were inspired by the 16 Human Dharmas, an ethical code written by King Songsten Gampo in 7th century Tibet to guide his citizens. The code played a crucial part in the transformation of Tibet from a warlike nation into a civilisation renowned for its peace and serenity. So the 16G are a contemporary presentation of ancient wisdom. They are decep- tively simple words which appear in all of the spiritual, religious and philosophical traditions of the world – even if they aren’t always put into practice. If we learn to apply them to real-life situations, they demonstrate a capacity to transform our relationships, help us to make wise decisions, and bring us peace of mind in difficult of circumstances.

Claudia is an international accredited facilitator in the Finding your Happy: 16 Guidelines for Life training pathway.

About the two-day workshop:

The Level 1 is a two-day course that introduces participants to the 16G and the framework of the four Wisdom Themes. Using interactive and experiential methodologies it gives inspiration and skills to apply the 16G in everyday life.

Participants are guided in personal explorations using the Guidelines as frames to analyse the way they relate to their experiences. The programme offers a range of practical tools and resources designed to promote reflection on the way we think, speak, act, and find meaning in life, presented through a mixture of exercises, group work and discussion. The skill of mindfulness is fundamental to all applications of the 16G so instruction and practice in mindfulness are included.

Benefits include:
• increased emotional resilience
• better relationships, at work and at home
• a greater capacity for insight and personal reflection
• a greater sense of well-being, confidence and purpose

“The minute you live in the Guidelines, your life will change.”

Lama Zopa, Honorary President of Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom

About FDCW and UECW 

The Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom (FDCW) is an international non-profit organization established in 2005 with the aim of creating and disseminating educational programmes and resources based on universal human values which enable positive, long-lasting, personal and social change. FDCW takes forward the vision of the late Lama Yeshe for Universal Education which enables people to develop to their full potential, addressing their totality as a human being.

Universal Education for Compassion and Wisdom (UECW) is a secular approach to inner development that empowers people to lead a happy and meaningful life and to be of service to others. UECW is rooted in Buddhist philosophy and psychology and deeply influenced by contemporary science and the universal wisdom of the world’s philosophical, spiritual and belief traditions.

FDCW aims to bring together science and spirituality in a contemporary experiential style suitable for people of all ages, beliefs and cultural traditions. The Dalai Lama is the Patron and Lama Zopa is the Honorary President. FDCW is affiliated to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).

At the suggestion of Lama Zopa Rinpoche the first UECW programme developed by FDCW was the 16 Guidelines for Life (16G). Since the launch in Sydney in 2006, the 16G have been adopted by thousands of people in over 24 countries, and catalysed a wide range of activities in education, youth work, health and social care, prisons, business leadership, family support, and community activism. The 16G are an inspiration for taking action to benefit others and self, and they offer a simple, practical framework for doing this.
