Week 1 – Introduction to Wellbeing – in this session you will define and understand what wellbeing means and identify the different aspects of wellbeing. You will be able to identify AND correct behaviours that are currently interrupting your Wellbeing and be able to see what is causing you discomfort and know how to shift. You will learn self-care strategies that go beyond a ‘massage or a bath’ and help you treat and pamper your body, mind and spirit and you will lay a great foundation for your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Week 2 – Exploring Your Physical Wellbeing – in this session you will realise the importance of making health a ‘hobby’ you love and you will replace the attitude of ‘I have no time’ to ‘NOW is the time!’. With the tools you will learn in this session you will have more energy and be reducing your risk of diabetes, stroke and hypertension. You will be able to model healthy eating and movement habits for the next generation – ensuring your children are well too. Together we’ll apply skills to plan meals, read labels before buying food, understand the difference between real food and processed food and make great choices for physical wellbeing.
Week 3 – Enhancing your Emotional and Mental Wellbeing – in this session you will define mental/emotional wellness and illness so you are clear about the difference. You will learn strategies to help you accept emotions as a holistic part of self (you may even come to like them, even the uncomfortable ones). You will learn to reduce and manage stress and be able to recognize the EARLY symptoms and intervene so you avoid burnout. You will develop your capacity to empathise and practice non-judgemental communication and connection (mental-health communication).
Week 4 – How can you experience Social Wellbeing – in this session you will recognise the capacity of a solid social network as a preventative factor for mental illness and how to move on from people who are not healthy for your social well being. You will find ways to make more time for the people and social activities that are important to you and will reflect on the relationships you have to build and strengthen positive connections. You will learn how to create a conducive social environment in which you can grow an thrive. You will identify ways to connect with and discover your own ‘culture’ and appreciate other cultures too. You will learn ways to connect and bond both face to face and virtually AND expiring the ‘givers high’ through your contribution – rather than the depletion that can so often come from giving more than you have.
Week 5 – Integration and ‘hot seat’ – this session is an open Q&A session and provides an opportunity for you to catch up on course material, deep dive into concepts already learned in a 1:1 hotseat and invites a more practical application of material in a group session.
Week 6 – The value of Spiritual Wellbeing – in this session you will recognise the potential of faith/spirituality in the overall development of mind, body and spirit. You will develop the muscle of ‘faith over matter’ and learn to manage pain or eliminate it all together. You’ll also learn strategies to let go of emotional baggage and develop a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in your life. You’ll learn mindfulness and gratitude strategies to reconnect to your spiritual self and you will also experience mindful breathing and meditation techniques to calm the mind and connect you to something greater than yourself.
Week 7 – Getting to know your Intellectual and Creative Wellbeing – in this session you will be introduced to the ‘intelligence of your being’ and recognise the intellectual faculty as an integral part of the whole. You will tune into the creativity that will enable you to deal with uncertainty and increase your positive emotions more of the time, despite the circumstances you might find yourself in. You will awaken the sleeping beauty of creativity within and gain skills in integrating knowledge and how to use your intellectual and creative capacity in judgement, crisis management and recovery. Through creative expression you will learn to copy with daily demands, problems and pressure more effectively.
Week 8 – Integration and ‘hot seat’ – this session is an open Q&A session and provides an opportunity for you to catch up on course material, deep dive into concepts already learned in a 1:1 hotseat and invites a more practical application of material in a group session.
It’s so important to show you that you are not alone!. By connecting women together from different parts of the world and from different industries and sectors, but who are singularly focused on improving their wellbeing – you can expand your peer group, connect with like-minded people AND build your community of practice.
There are lots of people sitting around saying ‘if only they did xyz…’, having great ideas that never get heard or see the light of the day. Activation means – the action or process of making something active or operative…. This is what we need right now! We want to help you unearth those treasures in your life, put some thinking and action into them and then share them far and wide and yield the great wellbeing from it.
If we learn to work together, better we’ll all succeed! And if we want to see it then we all need to lead it. It could be argued that this will be one of the most collaborative co-created programs EVER in Rural Australia… and you could be a pioneer in that movement!

This opportunity has the potential to change your life for the better! It is an amazing way for you to connect with like-minded rural women as well as being able to improve your own skills and knowledge. BUT, it’s not a quick fix. We want you to DO something with what you learn and achieve! We’ll provide you with connection to experts, tools, systems and information and great people – but it’s up to you what you do with it – and there are no guarantees. We can’t promise you all the success you dream of..because people are people. What we do know is that the women who show up, do the work and implement – get results – 100% of the time! AND we can promise to deliver a fun, unique, interactive and dynamic experience that will yield some known outcomes and some fabulously left field ones we couldn’t ‘predict’ but are sure will be awesome! We’re asking you to give yourself the chance to learn, grow and expand yourself!
