Workshop segments consist of group activities, individual work, and facilitated slide shows.

The group sets the pace of the workshop based on their areas of interest and level of understanding of the material presented (i.e. spending more time on some topics and less on others).

The workshop focuses on exploring oneís inherent tendencies, learned behaviours and thinking processes which with insight and self-understanding can be maintained if they have a positive effect on life, or altered if they have a negative impact.
