The Power of Discomfort: What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
Thursday May 19th
We are holding our next community workshop on May 19th in Brunswick East. A workshop for those wanting to embrace life and all the chaos that comes with it. It can often be extremely difficult to embrace feelings of discomfort and vulnerability in our lives, but also so vital in our growth and personal development, as well as becoming our true, authentic selves. Once you learn to embrace discomfort and accept your challenges softly, openly and courageously you can steer your life in the direction you choose, whilst living gracefully amongst the messiness that comes along the way. Tickets here!
