This 6-week course will be held at EUR campus Woudestein and will start on Thursday, February 8th at 17h00.

Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-exploration and uncover hidden talents and passions?

Do you want to gain a deeper understanding of who you are and what drives you? To know where you are heading you must know where you are starting from.

Did you know that taking the time for self-discovery can lead to increased happiness and fulfilment? If you would like to discovery what you value most in life, become the person you aspire to be, truly connect with the ones you love, and be more present and live with purpose; this course is for you.

Here's what you will cover in this course

During this 6-week course you will ask yourself the tough questions, challenge your beliefs, and emerge from this experience with newfound confidence and purpose. So, are you ready to take the leap and unlock your full potential?

Week 1: Introduction to Yourself

In the first session, you will meet your fellow explorers (including your trainers). We will get to know each other, discuss the importance of self-discovery, and dive into the two core themes of this course: presence & purpose.

Week 2: Thoughts, Emotions and Behaviours

We will examine how you view yourself, others, and the world around you. Using science-backed psychotherapeutic techniques, you will learn to examine the validity of your thoughts and thereby change the way you think, feel, and react to external events.

Week 3: Presence

In the third session, you will learn to cultivate presence within yourself and, consequently, in your interactions with others.

Week 4: Shadow - Integrating Our Dark Side

The fourth week is all about authenticity and radical honesty. Instead of looking at the bright side, you will shed light on your shadow and discover how integrating the least desirable parts of yourself makes you more whole.

Week 5: Core Values

After building a solid foundation of presence, you are going to craft your first steps towards a valued direction. Using a range of diverse activities and ancient teachings, you are going to solidify your core values and set goals towards them straight away.

Week 6: Moving Forward with Presence & Purpose

In the final session, we bring everything we learnt together in a mega-exercise that builds your confidence and sets you up on the right path. Finally, you create an integrated plan for your continued development as a person in the next chapters of your life.

This message is radically honest, entails stepping outside the comfort zone and creates a sense of belonging. After an amazing board year with the team, he biked from Rotterdam to Zurich to pursue his exchange. In Switzerland he set up the first international branch of Extraordinary Life. Niek is characterised by going against the grain, caring for improvement and discipline.
