“Excellent for self reflection, development and inner peace!...This has really helped me identify my behaviors and emotions, and pinpoint the moving force behind the positive and negative experiences. These questions really helped me see how I can live my best life and embrace my true nature. Every Module had an activity that transforms you! I have read over the modules again because I enjoyed it so much. I will continue to use the activities to stay present, mindful and aware. I look forward to taking other courses! ”
