Your Shared Space for Wellbeing Online

It’s wonderful to see things opening up a bit in the UK and Europe and of course, spring is here now and that’s always a special time.

Despite this, many of us are still working from home and until the vaccination programme is complete, perhaps we still feel a bit cautious.

Your Shared Space for Wellbeing Online is all about having a friendly online group that is small enough that we can really share and learn together. With the group size limited to just 12 people only there is plenty of time and space to get to know each other.

For our third topic we’re turning to exploring the topic of ageing.

How do you want to flourish in your ripe old age?

The tree in the photo is old but it’s magnificent. It’s stretching its branches to fill the space and digging its roots deep into the earth. It’s flourishing!

How can we ensure that we flourish as we age? This is the topic we will explore together by focusing on a different question each week:

What are you enjoying about getting older?

How do you see yourself and how do you think other people see you as you get older?

What are the challenges of ageing?

What are your plans for flourishing in the next phase of your life?

Each person will have space to bring their thoughts and insights to the group and we’ll share resources to deepen our understanding.

How the course is organized

The course will take place on four Tuesdays: 15, 22, & 29 June 2021 & 06 July 2021

  • Sessions will take place from 19.00 to 20.30 CET
  • The main learning will take place in the ZOOM sessions – one for each week of the course.
  • Participants will find the ZOOM links on the course platform. Sessions are recorded so people can go back and review them.
  • The ZOOM sessions will be backed up by the course platform which means that course participants can:

– make online profiles, so we can get to know each other

have access to a resources section with more materials for each session

– comment and ask questions on the course platform in addition to the ZOOM sessions.

What people said about the Vulnerability course


I learn so much from the courses I’ve done with Maureen. She’s a caring and inspiring teacher and brings together my mind and heart

 I appreciate the richness of Maureen’s sources, and her way of working with the group with caring and humour. It feels very warm and open. And the questions she asks are so provocative. It made me think a lot about joy

I like the whole idea of being able to participate in a course that is offered in the Netherlands while others are in the Netherlands also in UK and I am here in Canada

Course price for the full course 45 euros

Meet Maureen,
your course facilitator

Hi there

Thanks for your interest in this course.  

I had a significant birthday last year while we were all in lockdown and it got me thinking about ageing a great deal. I thought this format of exploring together as a group would be a spacious and fun way to see how each of us is coping with becoming older. 

I do hope you feel like joining—it would be lovely to have you in the group!


Take care, Maureen
