·        Introduction to the Universe and yourself as Conscious Energy
·        Feminine and Masculine Energy and Virtues
·        Discussion of how Racism develops relative to Chakra Energies and Worldviews
·        Discussion of the Energies of Love and Fear, and how they affect our psycho-
spiritual development
·        The Role of Sexism
·        How We Can Connect with and Honor People Who are Different from us

Day/Level Two Workshop will include:
·        How We Grow psycho-spiritually
