What exactly is Design for Life?

Life is an improvisation. And there is no instruction manual for this. Not until now.

Too often, we lack a deep understanding of how we get triggered, relate with others, and treat ourselves. In our desire for directions in life, we go about searching for profound personal answers in the latest self-help book, and scouring the web for the newest “How to” guides. Others who splurge on traditional motivational “ra ra” workshops, leave with a “feel good” factor, but lack any lasting impact. Somehow, it’s like the missing piece still isn't found.

Overview of Two-Day Workshop

In A Design for Life, we seek to help individuals unlock their potentials, and develop better versions of themselves. This is done through a rich and alive experience of within oneself and with others. This goes beyond the usual “head” knowledge, which most of us already have. A Design for Life is suited for those who want clear directions for a dynamic individualised game plan for their life.

Key Benefit

  1. Break through personal barriers that hinder you from a rich life;
