'Peace in Practice' - remaining effective in turbulent situations

The 'Peace in Practice’ workshop has been designed by the Quest for Life Foundation to increase the compassion, skill, capacities and knowledge of health and wellbeing professionals. Focusing on resilience and self-care, participants at this workshop will leave equipped with a tool kit of strategies to support their work, which are based on the latest scientific research on health, healing, neuroscience and epigenetics.

A great way to start afresh for the New Year!
