"It is easy to lose that connection to who you are deep inside and to what matters when you are under some kind of duress. Some fall apart, while others harden, some seem able to roll with the punches while others resign themselves to an unsatisfactory outcome or fight tirelessly for that prize always out of reach. How do you cope? It is my wish that with this ten week program you will learn to see your stressors and any challenges you are facing with a renewed sense of purpose, strength and opportunity." Nicole
