This workshop helps members find self-acceptance and self-improvement but helping the members become aware of their possibilities and acknowledge that they are responsible for events they formally thought were happening to them. This workshop will provide psychological strength to the group not to fall into depression or anxiety. The technique used in this work will be a blend of Vipassana meditation and Existentialism ideas.
