Frequently Asked Questions
1. What to do after submitting the application?
Your training starts with the 42 Days online self-development program on our interactive platform providing you the basic theory and practice; developing the tools for inner peace and learning about the concept of PIPO. Through the In person Special OPS you have the means to share the tools to friends, family and school at large. As good influencers in your society, you have the chance to take this back to your communities!
2. What is the self development program?
The free online self-development program is a 42-day challenge teaching the skills and techniques involved in the development of inner peace. It provides guided meditation videos and daily reflections to support personal development and the practice of mindfulness. You can start the first episode here.
We recommend to follow the 42 days in a row to get more benefit, although this is not compulsory.
If you finish the program more than a year before the date of the Training, you may have to re-do it! Do not worry, it is a great chance to enjoy it one more time and recognize how much you have developed yourself!
3. What am I supposed to write in the proposal question in the application?
We call PIPO the series of meditation events that our Alumni organizes in their country once they have returned home. It is a great opportunity for you to design your own way to share your new knowledge with others back to your community. Here we are interested in knowing your motivation about spreading the message of ‘Peace In Peace Out’ further: what you would like to do, and how you plan to do it. This is a space for you to share all your ideas and projects, to include or combine WPI in your agenda after the Training in Thailand. Peace In, Peace Out!
