Being for Beginners

Tuesday 16 November - Thursday 2 December 2021 (Tuesdays and Thursdays only), 5.00pm


We want to succeed: to forge a career, to make friends, to pursue our interests and opportunities. To feel that life is in balance and we are growing.


Harsh realities can drain away our motivation and leave us feeling unsettled, even overwhelmed. Our long-term success and fulfilment depend upon our ability to perceive, understand and work skilfully with our thoughts and feelings.


These workshops are an opportunity to reflect and develop greater clarity of mind; the language of emotional literacy; the ability to notice and work with patterns of thought and feeling. They are designed to increase our agency to make the changes we want to our patterns of thinking, feeling and behaviour; the series offers frameworks for change, and practices that strengthen our wellbeing.


Being for Beginners was designed for researchers. Over 2000 participants have attended Being for Beginners workshops. Feedback has been extremely positive.

“Terrific... incredibly positive.. comprehensive.. a wellbeing game-changer”

The workshops are led by Roddy Bray, an anthropologist interested in evolution, human needs and culture. 


Roddy is an experienced facilitator with a kind manner, who creates a calm and sensitive space ensuring anonymity. 


“Brilliantly-led sessions. Most of all it respects privacy -no judgement.”

This series of six workshops is fully supported with online resources, including audio and video ‘catch-up’.
