In today’s society, we thrive on performance, competition and perfection. This situation leads to an alarming body reaction which we humans labeled it as‚ÄĚ stress‚ÄĚ. It is a social phenomenon that has been developed in to a global pandemic. Extensive research shows that it is the number one reason that causes psychopathic disorders and chronic illnesses.

It is a major issue that affects everyone’s quality of life especially in the western world, on a day to day basis. It is essential that we find the way to live a stress free life in order to be more productive and live a quality life.

How we think and how we act can transform our experience of stress. When we choose to see stress as a helpful friend then we create the biology of courage.

Learning strategies that help us manage our thoughts and emotions is the answer to a stress free lifestyle.

In this course participants can learn to teach these strategies to learners as well as adopt them in their everyday life. They can develop awareness towards their abilities and learn to be present.

Once you discover the benefits of these strategies you will apply them both in your personal and professional life!
This course is a great opportunity for personal and academic development and it is addressed to participants of any specialization.

It will include outdoor activities as well as field studies. There will be visits to beautiful landscapes on Troodos mountain as well as a day trip to cape Akrotiri and the beautiful beaches of Limassol.
