Change Your Story, Presented by Kimball Walker
December 17th at 3:00 -4:30pm in the Mii amo Library
If we let them, our stories can define us and limit our healing – by definition, isn’t a story a limited experience? Wouldn’t you like your story to support you and help you to heal both body and soul? If you are aiming to be your best self, then looking at what you believe to be true is the next step. By understanding our unique underlying beliefs, we illuminate what holds us back from healing, growing and becoming who we were meant to be. You may be surprised that what you have always thought of as “the facts” of your life are actually age-old perceptions that hold no truth.
