Our Impact

See the ripple effect of our courses and their wider benefits


Personal Relationships

One of the key benefits of our courses will be on your personal relationships, whether with your family, at work or in your community. 

At times we can all face challenges in our relationships both personal and professional. There is an increasing body of scientific research highlighting the importance of positive values and loving relationships for our health and wellbeing, particularly in the early years. 

Our courses are designed to draw out our own unique strengths and positive qualities and in doing so have a positive impact on those around us.

You'll experience:

  • Better communication
  • Increased confidence
  • Greater resilience
  • Motivation to help others

“I find that if we practise the 16 Guidelines, we benefit not only ourselves, but those around us. By attending the workshop with my daughter, we now have a common ground to discuss problems.”


Our programmes can be adapted for use in schools and educational settings.

In many countries mainstream education focuses on facts, figures and test scores with little attention paid to developing a child’s positive values and the effect it has on a view of themselves and the world around them. 

In young people moving into adulthood outside pressures from peers and social media can make it even harder.

This can lead to children and young people feeling disconnected from family and those around them, finding it hard to build positive relationships and feeling a lack of purpose or direction. 

The tools you gain on our courses can be adapted and used with children and young people to develop self-awareness and emotional resilience. We offer advice and resources for you to create your own educational programme. 

Key benefits include:

For teachers
Experience greater emotional resilience (less burn-out) and an improved ability to respond to stress and relate calmly and effectively to students and colleagues, leading to an increased sense of wellbeing and meaning.

For students 
Experience less anxiety, enjoy better concentration, develop greater emotional resilience, stronger social skills and more positive behaviours.

For schools
Find they develop a stronger sense of vision and purpose and that their teaching and learning environments improve through greater harmony, better discipline and closer collaboration between teachers, students and parents.

“My son told me that the classes have helped him learn to make good decisions. His teacher commented on how he was so honest now and how much he has changed. He really got something he needed, so thank you for your work.”

Health & Social Care

Compassion and empathy are crucial qualities embodied by those who support others in health and social care sectors, yet they can be overwhelmed by the demands of the role, limited resources and stress. 

Our courses take a person-centred approach and seeks to equip health and social care professionals with tools to develop compassion and empathy for themselves and that will ultimately benefit those they are supporting. 

Within organisations our courses support the development of:

  • Positive relationships between staff, patients and relatives
  • Team-building and leadership
  • Strengthening of values and high performance throughout the organisation

Each person will gain practical tools that can be applied to busy routines. Benefits include:

  • An increased ability to remain calm and focused
  • Greater emotional resilience
  • Lower levels of stress
16 Guidelines impact in healthcare

“I work at an institution for almost 300 drug addicts. I have introduced a pilot project called ‘Mindfulness-Based 16 Guidelines’ for the staff because I thought it could be very effective as a treatment for our clients.”


Walking the line between a work and life is a hard balance to maintain, especially if you’re responsible for those around you. Throw in a bottomless inbox and it can take its toll on your wellbeing.

Our courses based on Universal Education aim to help leaders and managers realise their potential for living a happy and meaningful work-life while performing at the highest level.

It achieves this through bringing together the best of ‘Western’ scientific research in neurology, positive psychology and organisational studies with the most effective contemplative methods from ‘Eastern’ wisdom traditions.

Developing more empathy in the workplace will:

  • Help resolve difficult working relationships
  • Promote an inclusive and diverse working culture
  • Develop personal resilience and prevent emotional burn out
  • Support leaders and managers to develop healthy boundaries and a more flexible working style
  • Build adaptable and lasting cultures of openness and trust
  • Create sustained relationships across individuals, teams and organisations
  • Increase stakeholder and customer understanding
FDCW impact in business

“I have given 16 Guidelines: The Basics to someone I am coaching who has been promoted and is trying to establish being a ‘softer’ leader. I got a really nice note back saying, "I read about ‘humility’ and it made me realise that I don’t need to ‘demand’ respect. It will come." It was so nice to see it help someone so instantly!”
