I feel the same way – when I look at the content of the exercises, I find the whole thing brilliant. Because you get very concrete instructions for a manageable number of exercises, some of which have a ridiculously simple degree of difficulty at first glance. And what’s brilliant is that you can improve your so-called soft skills in the areas of mind control, willpower and the emotional sphere – simply put.

Now we already have 1 series completed over a period of close to 6 months. In October 2021 the 2nd series has started. This time not in public, and nothing will be recorded – it just did not happen. In the 2nd series, there are 5 small groups, which take place from Sundays to Thursdays at 18h CET each. In addition, there is a special date on the first Friday of the month at 18h, where Wolfgang also participates, and it can be dealt with small cross-group questions (similar to a supervision).
