Ancient Teachings for Modern Times

Context:

  • Discuss additional alternative interventions to individualized therapy.

“Wow, it is hard to put words to the experience that my Wisdom Circle has meant to me. The Circle was the container for me and my other cohorts to step into the unknown and the explore our boundaries, fears and our growth edges. It was the support and accountability that I needed to move me toward a long-held vision. Prior to the Circle, I was stuck in the fear of leaving the known and venturing into the unknown. I did not think I could really accomplish what I did in those six months – but I did! With the support of this Circle I am now on a path to actualizing my vision. This could be the best decision you make for reaching toward your dreams – I know it was for me!”
