Event description

Description

Are you aware of all the different aspects of your life that affect your health and wellbeing?

In nature health and wellbeing seem to come naturally (pun intended). The process of evolution ensured that we adapted to survive and be healthy in an environment. The ability of humans to think beyond survival and what actually exists, and our ability to change our own environment has presented us with enormous opportunities but also the paradox that our desires can now often conflict with our health and wellbeing needs.

In this introductory workshop we will look to bring awareness to the areas of our lives that affect our wellbeing through a short exploration of the principle of evolutionary mismatch, a brief look at the healthiest populations from the Blue Zones and a brief introduction to the mindful traditions. We then explore how applying the lessons learned can help us grow lifelong wellbeing in the modern world. The workshop is a taster of the 6 week course in which the topics introduced will be explored in further detail.


Mike Paul Real has trained, studied and participated in fitness, health and wellbeing for 25 years. In 2009 he was diagnosed with likely terminal cancer. In 2010 he herniated a lumbar disc. In 2018 he has been formally assessed as having adult ADHD. What he has learned in the last 10 years has totally opened his eyes to a different world of information, philosophies and methodologies that actively support mental and physical wellbeing that he was unaware of during the first 15 years of his formal training and experience. He now wishes to share some of this learning and experience that has helped him so profoundly.
