The Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom is pleased to announce the launch of Level 1 of our new three-level learning programme: The a.r.t. of Fulfilment (action, reflection, transformation)
A Unique Programme of Systematic Inquiry
The a.r.t. of Fulfilment is an innovative, in-depth programme suitable for general adult audiences - people seeking to explore deeper meaning in life - as well as facilitators and participants of other Universal Education for Compassion and Wisdom (UECW) programmes and courses.
The programme is based on the three themes Inner Happiness, Good Heart and Clear Mind, which form a unique integrated framework that connects the cultivation of inner qualities with transformative action in daily life.
The programme content is rooted in Buddhist philosophy and psychology, supported by scientific research and Western philosophy and psychology. It has been developed by an international team with academic-level expertise in Buddhism, Western philosophy and psychology, contemporary science and experiential learning methodology.

Level 1 Courses
In a supportive group, participants explore how they actually live in the world and how this can either limit them or help them develop in the long-term. Participants explore whether they can change and whether they have choices. Through this exploration they begin to uncover what makes a happier and more fulfilling life and what living up to their potential could mean.
These investigations are structured as a variety of enjoyable yet challenging exercises, reflections and discussions.
Most importantly, participants will have structured daily exercises and techniques to take away to help them continue to inquire over time, and integrate discoveries into daily life.
Our first group of highly skilled facilitators have just completed their Level 1 training. The a.r.t. of Fulfilment facilitators have in-depth understanding of the material, especially Buddhist philosophy and psychology, as well as long-term personal experience of exploring the issues and integrating them into their own lives. Level 1courses will begin to be offered at various locations around the world from 2017.
“I was really taken with how deep the material goes - how well you remember it - because you were involved in the material rather than just passively listening. This course is well worth the effort.” trial participant, The a.r.t. of Fulfilment
“A very interesting series of exercises were encountered during the day. In different ways they were well-focused on the key ideas being explored. As a participant, they have led to a number of important insights for my own life.” trial participant, The a.r.t. of Fulfilment
