Living on Purpose

Jan. 8 – Feb. 7, 2024

Join us for the a month of purposeful living! This program requires an average commitment of about 30 minutes per day — a substantial but not overwhelming commitment. Yet with the structured guidance provided by this program, and the online support of other program participants from around the world, you may actually succeed in devoting 15 hours during the course of the month towards the goal of living on purpose. You may be very pleasantly surprised by the noticeable difference these efforts can make.

Taking Action: Finishing the Unfinished and Starting the Unstarted

Feb. 19 – March 20, 2024

Do you have something important that remains unfinished? Here’s a chance to turn your plan into reality. Using methods from Morita Therapy (The Psychology of Action) you’ll have the support, encouragement, and guidance you need to overcome practical and psychological obstacles and accomplish something that becomes part of your life and legacy. Whether you’re still in the idea stage, or stuck somewhere along the way, this program can help you to take action and move forward in the real world.

A Natural Approach to Mental Wellness

April 17 – May 17, 2024

During this month-long program, we will explore how to coexist with our internal experience, work with our attention, live with purpose, develop acceptance and practice self-reflection. The curriculum of the course spans the practical, the psychological and the spiritual. These dimensions are woven together throughout the course in the same way that they are woven together in our real lives. The program is broad enough to be widely relevant, and deep enough to offer new discoveries, as our lives continue to change and unfold over time.

Living Fully with Illness

Nov. 4 – 30, 2023

The program utilizes humor; curiosity; creativity; engagement in meaningful activities and expanding our attention to include the wonder of small joys and risk-taking (not recklessness).

The program is taught by Trudy Boyle, program coordinator for the ToDo Institute’s new Living Fully with Illness project. Trudy is the former project Director of Wellspring Calgary, a cancer resource center and has been working with cancer patients for 12 years and Japanese Psychology for the past 28 years.

Working with Your Attention

October 20 – November 19, 2023

This month-long adventure offers an ingenious way of enhancing mindfulness, solving problems, and revitalizing your life. We will provide you with the tools, structure and support to develop greater mindfulness in your personal and professional life. Each day of the month you will work with your attention in a deliberate, focused, and interesting way.

Gratitude, Grace and a Month of Self-Reflection

Nov. 19- Dec. 18, 2023

You are invited to join us for our annual Gratitude, Grace and a Month of Self-Reflection sponsored by the ToDo Institute. This is a distance learning program which gives you an opportunity to integrate the practice of self-reflection into your daily life. The program is based primarily on Naikan and Naikan-related exercises, but also draws on material and ideas of Albert Schweitzer, Ben Franklin, and others whose work emphasized the importance of quiet self-reflection. Many of us believe that it is important to take time for quiet reflection, but we don’t do it because our lives are so busy.
