Workshop segments consist of group activities, individual work, and facilitated slide shows. Individual learning styles (visual, auditory, tactile) are considered in the way material is presented. The group sets the pace of the workshop based on their areas of interest and level of understanding of the material presented.

The concept of individual choice is considered and encouraged. Inherent tendencies are explored as are 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.
