About the Course
This course is a practical guide for developing and maintaining a light and positive state of mind, showing how to recognize and abandon thoughts and intentions that harm us, and to replace them with meaningful and beneficial ones. The inspiring discovery we make from the exploring and discovering how our mind works is that we can heal our mental pain and attain a lasting state of joy and peace regardless of how things are going in our life.
