Our seminars are based on the Culture of Care
The Culture of Care is about social awareness, building resilience and mental flourishing. We create the emotional space to help people get to know each other better and connect with empathy. It also encourages the understanding of their limits and their psychic powers. The needs of each individual are recognized, so that everyone is present with all their being, to open up and interact with confidence. Modern society promotes competition and exploitation of others. With this seminar we see the imprints of capitalism on ourselves and our team. We understand that in order to evolve, we need to do it together, through our heart, mind and soul, in unity. Thus, through it, we develop and solve the issues that concern us.
