Synapspark workshops, seminars and presentations engage participants in learning through all of their senses and various intelligences.

Through hands-on activities, role playing, individual reflection, group discussion and group sharing, the inherent wisdom contained in each individual often allows for large portions of the workshops to be driven by the participants themselves.

This is one of the very few workshops where I felt I was being talked to instead of talked at. Stephen and Tammy are 2 of the best facilitators I have ever experienced. They were very open and communicative, explained and helped me explore the very delicate matter of suicide intervention and how to go about helping our clients as well as family and friends.
