Course Philosophy

"Will you accept this challenge?"  

Lined OECAt the OEC, the choice to accept or reject a challenge always belongs to you! Our philosophy can be viewed from two perspectives. First, it is a guarantee that no OEC facilitator will ever pressure or coerce your participation in any of the activities during the session. While you can expect your participation to be encouraged, it will not be forced! Secondly, it recognizes the responsibility of individual group members to take every challenge seriously. While OEC facilitators will provide the opportunities for a group or individual to be challenged, the ultimate decision to take advantage of these opportunities lies with the individual!
