Personal Mastery

Personal Mastery

What is this programme about?
The programme, which stretches over 2½ days, is conducted in a nature setting and involves the three brains, motivational and self-inspired exercises, mindfulness meditation practice, music therapy, peer coaching, and the unlocking of critical and dynamic tools for self-reflection, self-measurement, goal-setting and planning.

It invokes all aspects of the individual and is holistic and integrated by nature. Large focus is placed on honing one’s purpose, talents and strengths and on understanding what it is that one is born to do. It brings about reflective questioning on the stories that have been lived that may no longer be serving – and how to craft a new script for the inner and outer journey onward.
