The academic and writer Brené Brown suggests that we are “hardwired for struggle.” As human beings, we recognise the all too familiar oscillations of success and failure Our worlds pivot around the demands of work, relationships, responsibilities and urgency, leaving us feeling off kilter and longing for peace and stability. Is the holy grail of a holistic and finely-tuned equilibrium a myth? Or is the notion of balance a tangible possibility? 
Artist Heather Dornan Wilson joins Ulster University psychologist, Dr Victoria Simms, actor and theatre maker Stephen Beggs & writer Jan Carson to explore issues around balance, tension, calibration and equilibrium, relating to our emotional wellbeing.
