Windows of the Soul is a series of seven unique sessions that will take you on an amazing journey of self-awareness and transformation, enriching the most ordinary aspects of your daily life as it unfolds throughout the year. This series is designed to foster deeper personal reflection on the inner movement of one's own soul, as well as in the outer "marketplace" of local and global issues. You will have the opportunity to talk with others about ways to grow in loving consciousness, live beyond fear, and discover new choices for self-expression and ways to lead your own unique life.
