Education – “Through The Journey”
The training is divided into 3 levels. The trainee will gradually acquire both the techniques and knowledge of each phase.
STEP BY STEP: all levels are interconnected, the trainee will experience each step in a particular way, focusing on acknowledging that step only, to continue learning more skills every time.
It comes a time when all these phases are only one, a single matrix that flows and grows “through the journey”.
