OPAL's Positive Impact Philosophy invites all to consider how our own individual actions can influence and change the actions of others and encourages a positive approach to all that we do in life. The teachings within this philosophy provide a set of processes that can be used to develop a positive approach and outlook in all that we do and encounter in life. Whilst the teachings and processes provide the opportunity to develop a meaningful and rewarding lifestyle and nurture your inner spiritual well being, it is not linked to, nor does it require you to follow, any religious doctrine.
