Living in the 21st Century: Rewriting the Future of Your Life

1. Being - Who Am I?
2. Knowing - Inner knowing, social injustice, external knowing, integrating both to find your vision
3. Doing - Where and how change happens
The workshop is for participants 18 – 30 years of age and will be held at Melbourne Town Hall from 9.30am – 12 noon on Saturday 23rd of May as part of the Victorian United Nations Day of Vesak 2015.
