Detect your Essence



Detect your essence, search your direction

Training Course


24-30 January 2016, Antwerp, Belgium


Detect Your Essence, Search Your Direction is an unique 7 days international training course. In a very interactive and innovative approach we guide youth workers to discover who they really are and which direction serves them best for their future plans.


















The training course Detect Your Essence, Search Your Direction is useful for your personal development but will also serves the young people you work with. What you learned with us you can use on a personal and a professional level. After this training course you can better handle relationships, mainly because you know yourself better.


The success of our approach is the non-formal learning: In this framework you, as a participant, are completely free to design your own personal learning process based on your own unique needs. This pro-active attitude provides the best results, because only you direct your own personal learning journey. You search your own way in the flow of the program framed by the trainers, and stimulated by the other participants. The trainers give structure by offering background theory, exercises, debriefings and personal coaching.


We are working in a personal laboratory where everything is possible and you corporate completely on a voluntary base. Provided in a frame by the trainers you can create your own path for future plans. You’ll do this together with other motivated participants and stimulated by innovative, interactive methods and tools.
