How do I follow my Inner Compass?: How many times has someone told you, “Just follow your heart”? It can often be difficult to know if your heart is guiding or if your mind is simply over-thinking. We’ll examine a few life situations and see what simple tools we can use to make decisions with a clear heart and mind.

Finding Meaning: Take time to identify what is most important to you. Learn how to make a plan to live in congruence with your values. Have fun along the way!

An Inner Journey – Exploring Meditation: Explore how meditation can be an evolutionary tool in your life to re-shape your mind and energetic system into a more integrated and holistic “you.” Learn practical heartfulness meditation exercises to improve your intuition and to expand your mind.
