Through interacting with a diverse peer group, participants might rediscover old inspirations, establish new directions and open their vision to new perspectives. The programme is an open platform for those who are eager to achieve and discover more about their perceived capabilities, to challenge the status quo of what was thought to be possible and most importantly seek adversity over taking the path of least resistance. This course is perfect for those wishing to seize the day, turn a new page, and begin a new chapter in their lives. These 3 days are an introductory experience into what one can achieve should they put their minds to it with the support of those around them.
Everyday we interact with families, colleagues, friends and acquaintances. What if each interaction could be more meaningful, productive or mutually beneficial?
Are you aware of your engagements?
Are you giving the most you can from each and every encounter?

The following is an example of what your itinerary may look like. Your actual course plan will vary according to permitting, weather, participant skills and abilities, and instructor planning/ assessment.
Arrive half an hour before your start time. This gives you time to proceed to the meet up point and await your group members.
We recommend you wear course clothing and shoes.
The most important part is what the material is made from, not its brand name.
In general, avoid cotton/ cotton blends and stick to synthetic fabrics like polyester or natural fibers like silk and wool. Being dressed for the course will also further efficiency on your first day.
