This is the course I have developed from the year that changed my life. Amongst challenge and adversity, these are the practices are where I found my deepest courage and strength. These are the Meditations and evidenced based practices that I created meaning and fostered compassion in my life. They are here now in this year long course for all to receive, cultivate and cherish.
