PEP Course Descriptions
There are currently 4 PEP course curriculums. PEP facilitators can decide which one to start with. They are not sequential. Here are some of the particular attributes of each:
PEP 1: Each DVD / session is 1 hour in length. It includes short and longer videos and five animated shorts. There are two Reflection times included in each session, which can be used at the facilitator’s discretion.
PEP 2: Each session is approximately 35 minutes in length, and there are two sessions on each DVD. PEP 2 is suitable for audiences of all ages, including young people. There are two designated Reflection times per session. PEP 2 also includes some media interviews with Prem Rawat.
PEP 3: Designed to provide the maximum flexibility for PEP classes, PEP 3 consists of 10 DVDs with one theme per DVD. PEP 3 contains the same 10 themes as PEP 1 and PEP 2. The handouts have been reduced to one page per class, and the Facilitator Handbook has been merged with the Facilitator Manual.
PEP 3 allows for PEP classes to be flexible in length, as the situation requires. If, based on the audience and scheduling constraints, a shorter session is required, you could play half of the DVD at one session and half at the next. Additional videos are included for classes that are one hour or longer. There is also an optional second reflection time listed in the Workbook and Manual.
PEP Collection (PEP CL): PEP CL is an engaging assembly of short videos (ranging from 1-10 minutes per video) selected primarily from PEPs 1, 2, and 3. PEP Collection includes segments of longer PEP videos, fun animated shorts, and Reflections with a total running time of under 30 minutes for each workshop. The accompanying print material includes single-page handouts for each theme, workbooks, and an updated Facilitator’s Guide complete with additional resources for teachers or group leaders to encourage self-discovery in a classroom setting.
