The training is a unique course of instruction designed to support people to be more effective in realizing their own personal, societal, and professional goals through engaging in; high-intensity performed exercises; seated or active meditation practices and exercises that can be experienced as mentally and physically challenging by some; philosophically rigorous inquiry and open discussions, voluntary sharing of your experience with others and in short exercises, journaling etc. The training, and its methods provides an opportunity to explore basic questions about life and living and physical fitness that have been of interest to human beings throughout history and as a way to examine some aspects of one’s life and well-being with the intention to create new possibilities for their life, living and fitness.
In the training, you will be actively working with your physical body in addition to exploring your personal experience. The experience of the training is unique to each individual and there’s no way to predict in advance exactly what you may think, feel or experience as a result. It is normal for some people to experience unwanted or unfamiliar emotions from time to time, such as fear, anger, sadness, regret, hatred, irritation and impatience. For most participants exploring thoughts and feelings that they have not fully explored before has shown to be a useful and positive learning experience. Some participants have found that exploring life’s issues honestly may evoke uncomfortable and unpleasant feelings. For others, the training may occur as physically distressing. If you’re unwilling to encounter any of these powerful experiences or feelings in yourself or in others, or if you have any concerns about your ability to deal with such physical, mental or emotional experiences, we request that you do not participate in the training, or consult with medical and/or mental health professionals to first advise you on your decision to participate, or not.
Some people experience temporary and not seriously consequential stress during and after the training. For most people, stress is a normal part of everyday life. However, people who have a history of mental illness or serious emotional problems personally or in their immediate family may be more vulnerable to stress of any kind including the stress of rigorous yoga practices, meditation and personal development inquiry. In some people with any physical, mental or emotional problems, even normal amounts of stress from any source may generate severe physical, mental or emotional problems. If you have any history of physical injury, trauma, illness and/or mental illness or emotional problems personally or in your immediate family, whether temporary, vocational or intermittent, and or whether treated or not, or serious concerns about your ability to handle stress, we strongly recommend that you do not participate in the training or that you first consult with medical and/or mental health professionals to first advise you on your decision to participate, or not.

If you did not have sufficient sleep or if you have a sleep disorder during the week prior to the commencement of the training, we strongly recommend that you do not participate in the training. If during the training you feel that you have been unable to sleep or have not had sufficient sleep, you are advised to seek outside medical advice.
