After years of sitting in classrooms, church congregations, in front of the TV, or sitting in meetings, individuals often THINK they are retaining information and will respond to that information in a certain way.
The truth is, that when an actual opportunity arises where they must take action in a certain task or event, they will often be surprised that they did not react as they thought they would.
Why? Because knowledge memorized is not the same thing as knowledge that has been understood and experienced. Experiences reveal belief systems, behaviors and various skill sets that are not always addressed in a classroom environment.
We address a wide range of situations by providing opportunities for facilitated direction through workshops, field trips, group interactions and other activities which enable people to discover who they are, how they think, solve problems and interact with other people.
Many times we believe that we will react to a certain situation in an expected way, and through a facilitated experience we learn through conversation and individual experiences, what is behind our behaviors and thought processes when unexpected variables are introduced into an activity.
The benefit of these experiential activities is that it introduces healthier and more cognitive behavior in the workplace, in our communities and most importantly, in our family and intimate relationships. Understanding what makes YOU tick … helps you to understand what makes other people “tick”.
When we understand who we are, learn how to appreciate and be grateful for who we are, we will also learn how to appreciate and celebrate one another’s differences, while learning how to set healthy boundaries.
Imagine a world where each individual has learned how to appreciate who they are, to value themselves and to be responsible for their own actions while being aware of the opposite dynamics that others bring into a variety of social and personal situations.
- We learn that there is a connection between behavior and physical health and learn how to address and manage our health more effectively when we understand that body, soul, and spirit are connected.
- Reduce stigma and prejudice to promote unity and harmony by understanding the beauty and benefit of our differences.
- Understand stress and how it plays into abuse and violence so that different choices can be made in order to create a safer, more humane world.
- When major crisis events happen, healthier responses and choices are made because internal negative belief systems are being addressed, which create and amplify already stressful events.
- Families benefit by parents understanding themselves and one-another in a healthier way, and will understand how to interact with their children according to each child’s differences and learning styles.
We learn at a very deep level through experiences, and when they are experienced with other people while being facilitated and discussed, lives are changed, and in turn, whole communities change.
