AT A GLANCE
Feel a deeper sense of belonging while having your individuality honored by Andy’s gentle and affirming mentoring conducted through individualized dialogues and/or classes.
- As a human being, you are called to discover and journey toward your true self and to bring your unique gifts to the world.
- Moving toward what you want is a more positive and productive action than moving away from what you don’t want.
- Fully living your life in the present is the best preparation for living a life of meaning in the future.
- Identifying something you want to achieve in the future that excites you in the present is an ideal motivator.
- Learning to “sense and respond” generates more opportunities than creating a “long-range plan.”
