A free experiential online training for our Corona world

Wow! what a response, sorry we are already full. We may look into offering this again, after an iteration with a first small group.

So, you are at home, how do you make the most of it?

In this short online training, you get the mindsets and tools to give an experience as a gift to a loved one. We will explore how we can use this time at home - in quarantine - to grow the people and relationships that matter. There is a huge potential for people to apply basic experience design methods to their own relationships. This short online training is created upon the belief that this unique time offers us the chance to test out new ways of being, and to reflect on what is really important. We hope you will join us!
