Rita and Robert’s events have included:

In 2010, Sathya Sai Parenting and Marriage/Love of Conscience workshops were held in California, USA. Rita and Robert shared Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings interspersed with many of their personal life stories. Based upon attendees’ feedback and completed surveys, the workshops were transformational to the point that some couples reversed the idea of separating and were willing to work together with their spouse for a successful marriage. The workshops taught the importance of doing away with one’s ego and the necessity of having understanding and adjustment in a couple’s married life. 

During October and November of 2009 in Indonesia, Rita and Robert presented EHV Parenting and Learning Methods, as well as Relationships and Marriage with Human Values. The participants were Public School Teachers and Parents. There was an unusual mix of participants who attended, such as: Christians Nuns, Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists. The EHV program is not based on religion, but Human Values and is acceptable to all cultures and religions. It is teaching Character Development based on Human Values. The presentation style was a full day of speaking on various subjects with 350 participants in attendance.
