Through this 10-part workshop series, we learn to introduce inner stability and peace through exploring our inner world. Psychological frameworks, experiential practices, and meaningful discussions will shed light on the question of “who am I?” and perhaps even lead you to experience your life in a whole new way.

OVERALL OBJECTIVE

Facilitate the first steps in experiencing the various dimensions of one’s inner world and its connection to daily life, other people, and nature. Provide the vocabulary, the conceptual framework, and the practices to support the development of a healthy mind and life.
