Welcome to the Group in North London - run online by our wonderful volunteers Mourijn, Angela, Elmira & Margaret.
10 Keys Groups provide the opportunity to gather, either virtually or face-to-face and meet with like-minded people to learn about the 10 Keys to Happier Living - evidence-based ways to create a happier and more meaningful life - and how to put them into action.
10 Keys Groups are a great way to meet like-minded people locally, learn more about how to live a happy and meaningful life and find actions you can take to support yourself and others.

Please note 10 Keys Groups are not a therapeutic intervention, rather an opportunity for peer learning and support in implementing the 10 Keys.
Each session will include:
1. TUNE IN: We give people the chance to reflect on how they really feel in order to accept and learn from their own experiences.
2. EXPLORE: We inspire and uplift people with insights that come directly from experts with a solid grounding in the science of wellbeing.
3. CONNECT: We encourage people to unpack ideas together, relating them to their real-lived experience and creating a feeling of supportive community.
4. TAKE ACTION: We help people turn insights into action. We recognise that it is easier to act your way to a new way of thinking and feeling than it is to think your way to a new way of acting.
Underpinning the session are our ‘Five Golden Rules’ which are designed to ensure participants agree to principles to respect and support each other:
We really listen to each other.
We practice giving each other our full attention and valuing the perspectives, experiences and insights that everyone brings.
We are open about our feelings.
We notice our feelings and practice being open about them, recognising that being a little vulnerable in this way helps us all to connect.
We focus on what is working well.
We practice turning our attention to the positive and valuable, such as the things we feel grateful for and can learn from.
We practice safe boundaries.
We recognise this is not a space with a lot of mental health support. With this in mind, we make wise decisions about how much we open up so we don’t feel too vulnerable or uncomfortable.
We maintain a spirit of kindness.
We find ways to be kind to ourselves and one another throughout the session, and practice this kindness regularly.
