Building Brilliance®

Creativity In Action

Building Brilliance® is the name of our personal empowerment curriculum. It recognises that the most crucial relationship anyone has in life is the relationship they have with themselves. It is a comprehensive experiential self-empowerment programme, which works at all levels of human life. This awareness and the ability to support students to grow fully into their own power is what most clearly distinguishes Seven Oaks from other schools.

It starts with our physical well-being: opening all of our senses and learning how to take care of ourselves through basics such as healthy nutrition, adequate exercise, restorative rest.

Learning how feelings and emotions work and understanding the information they hold, allows us to grow beyond the negative reactions we often have when life is uncomfortable into the creation of responses that help us move positively forward with our lives.

Learning how our minds work; what is supportive and unsupportive thinking, that it is safe to use our imagination, to question the status quo and explore our own ideas, all lead to the level of thinking needed to create new solutions.

By recognising and tuning in to our dreams, values, visions and inspirations we open to our inner knowing, our wisdom, our greater consciousness. This is intuition, the best guide we can have in life. It opens our hearts and minds to limitless possibilities.

This is a curriculum that students learn via personal experience. Rather than memorising pre-set concepts or rules, each student builds their individual brilliance via personal engagement with, and reflection upon, a wide variety of real-life situations.
