On this occasion, the training was addressed to teachers, educators, parents, catechists and people over 18 years. On February 19, the first UpToYou training in Valencia was completed.
Attendees were able to listen, understand and work the main objective of the program: that the person can make a process of personal growth, whose first step is the reception of reality itself, which is discovered from their emotional situation.
Over several days, during the month of January and February, in sessions from Friday to Sunday, the 54 participants could enjoy UpToYou.
Then, Teresa, one of the participants to the training, tells us her experience:
"This weekend we finished the UpToYou course in Valencia. For me it has been a life experience, starting with the environment that has been created, more than fifty people, mostly unknown and yet sharing something as beautiful and deep as the emotions.
We have laughed, we have suffered from fatigue, from confrontation, we have shared the joy of discovering the roots of the person, and the joy that comes from facing oneself, its reality. Even when it can be a bit painful at times. But what has awakened in me this course is gratitude. It has helped me to contemplate the details of each day, to know and enjoy the person I have next, to dismiss the judgment and to replace it with the word reconciliation.
Once again, Caja Navarra Foundation has supported the UpToYou program in the call for grants for projects for this year 2017.

During the stay of the UpToYou team in Brazil, 50 teachers from the Cançao Nova Institute were trained. The whole group was able to enjoy an interesting training from January 18 to 20 in morning and afternoon sessions.
As with the rest of the teaching teams that receive the training in Brazil, these sessions were followed by those initiated in January 2016, conducted in a similar format.
They have been a few days of great work, in which they have shared experiences, concepts and new visions of understanding teaching.
In addition, due to the good results observed since the implementation of UpToYou, for this next course, the teachers will apply the program on themselves, as well as on the students
