Part 2

A New Understanding of the Mind – What Does This Practically Mean for Us? 

Stress, pressure and anxiety
Knowing that stress and anxiety come from thought in the moment and not from anywhere else demystifies these feelings, empowering the understanding that we are always equipped to handle life’s challenges.

Appreciating difference – what causes prejudice and what makes acceptance possible
Learning how every human being is created with the same fundamental “factory settings” generates the realisation that no person is more or less worthy than another, enabling the emergence of greater respect for difference and tolerance.

Inoculating against bullying behaviour
Learning that aggressive behaviour is rooted in insecurity and that no one has the power to make us feel bullied or inadequate, makes it more likely that we will find an appropriate response to the bad behaviour of others.

Self-image and identity – labels are for jars
Understanding that we do not require anything from the outside to feel complete leads to deeper feelings of wholeness and resilience that emerge from within.

Using social media without it using you
Knowing that our feelings are coming from our own thinking tells us that the potential for security lies within us, neutralising the “hold” social media may have over us.

The drivers behind addictive and compulsive behaviour
Realising that when we forget how feelings are created from thought we look “outside” to find relief from these feelings, dissolves the impulse that drives addictive habits and behaviour.

Dissolving barriers to learning and motivation
Seeing that we are all born with an immense capacity to unconditionally absorb and learn means that unnecessary thinking is the only barrier to our innate intelligence and motivation.

Meeting Ofsted and Government Requirements

Our project empowers participants with a secure foundation to cope with many of the challenges that they confront in  society today.  As the UK government requires the promotion of British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for modern life, the IHEART curriculum has been designed with this requirement at the forefront of our minds. The content of the sessions provide an excellent approach to developing this understanding on a whole school level, evident in the following ways:

  • By learning about separate realities, students discover how to welcome and accept differences, rather than feel judgmental or discriminatory.
  • By understanding where their feelings are coming from, students are better equipped to respond to destructive and extremist viewpoints.
  • By learning about the shared ways in which all people operate psychologically, students have an increased respect for others and tolerance for diversity, as well as a greater capacity to reduce conflict and bullying.
