The first day of the OP involved a process of the Brothers getting to know one another. Each Brother wrote his name on an A4 sheet of paper and on the other diagonal space wrote a quality that began with the first letter of his name. When each had completed the exercise, Brothers were invited to choose one of the other qualities that they could see on the pages and share how this could be helpful for their growth.
The daily schedule was explained and folders were distributed.
Then in the afternoon, David led a workshop on How do I intend to grow during the program. He introduced the idea of mindsets, heartsets, healthsets and soulsets. By focusing on each of these dimensions the Brothers spent time reflecting on how they could develop in each of the quadrants.
