We live in a dichotomy of both the work of our internal empowerment and the challenges we face in the society in which we live.  How can we move in a way that holds what is most important for us while doing our work in the world in a just and equitable way?  How can we ensure that we are holding soul, mind, and body in this journey?  How do we make decisions based on what we value so that we can show up fully?  This is what we will dive deep into throughout this course.  At the end of the sessions participants will have created a guidebook out of the assignments for their continual alignment.

COURSE DESCRIPTION
 
In order to handle the stressful moments we all experience throughout our lives, we must come to the realization that our stress, that feeling of tension caused by the fight or flight response, is the natural consequence of fear. We fight with or take flight from that which we perceive as a threat to our safety, health, and well-being. To healthfully manage the stress, we must choose to expose and face our fears, and grow beyond them. It is this process that we will explore fully in this class.
