Experiential Learning

The program is predominantly based on experiential learning, not didactic. During the program, new skills are developed with online meetings of approximately 2 hours each week. Participants are expected to practice for an average of 40 minutes, 6 days a week. The practical content changes every week building on the previous ones. It is recommended to follow home practices.

Practice Day

The Practice Day lasts approximately 5 hours and offers participants the opportunity for a long practice time. This day is also called the Day of Silence. Silence is expected from the participants throughout the day and it is recommended to avoid external stimuli as much as possible, such as social media, telephone, books, and television. The trainer guides the learned practices throughout the program.

You can think of this day as a gift to yourself.
