• You will get inspirations and challenges that support your growth
• You will immerse in a safe space to open up and allow change to happen

In addition, you will have the opportunity to exchange your experiences and share your revelations in a well-secured private and organized online forum.

The Work techniques & essentials will comprise:
• What to consider when filling out a JYN and how this can help better support your inquiry
• Applying the principles of facilitation & respecting clients rights

The Work techniques & essentials will be shared and deepened as needed.

In these 12 months you will find room to meet your inner truth with openness and to experience your world differently. You will have ongoing opportunities to inquire into areas which you might not have looked at yet in your everyday life so far.

Imagine what or who you would be showing up at the end of this journey to your true self.

We are looking forward to discover and unwrap all the gifts and beauties that lay in all the apparent adversities of life and to turn them around to see how they are for you.

Come and join us!

This year is mainly inspired and accompanied by the following Katie quotes:
- Everything that happens, happens for you not to you
- The only way out is in
- All war belongs on paper
- Don’t pretend yourself beyond your evolution
- A honest no to you is a yes to me and in that a yes to you.
- If I want something I go get it, anything that stops me I question
- Just keep coming home to yourself, you’re the one you’ve been waiting for.

It’s your life.  If you don’t turn it around, who will?

This could be the best holiday/Christmas gift ever!

Join us now!
