Many of life’s difficulties and complications are products of our own negative habitual thoughts and actions, but those harmful habits need not control our lives. In this weekend course, we’ll examine a variety of these persistent and destructive patterns in order to learn how to disempower them and cultivate new behaviors rooted in truth and genuine well-being.
