Reconnecting with family, friends and our community requires more than sharing a common space, we need to cultivate and share a common joy. Unlocking our potential for pure happiness will make our renewed relationships even stronger and filled with more love.
In this series of Saturday classes we will look at four ways to bring pure joy, happiness and peace to our interactions with others. By practicing meditations and bringing the essence of them into daily life you can cultivate your unlimited potential!
