The Art of Self Awareness Course
Have you ever wished that you could be happier inside more of the time? Does your productivity take a hit when your mood dips? Do you wish you would just do better but don’t know how? If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, this course is for YOU. Join The Self Awareness Journey to learn how feelings, when explored, inform us of our thoughts which ultimately cause our actions.
