Course Description

Come discover the gifts that our exiles have for us. These gifts include understanding the positive ways our exiles have shaped the priorities of our lives and how by holding on to the burden they enabled the rest of our parts to go on with our lives. In addition, when we help exiles unburden, they can help us reconnect with our True Self and the unique qualities and gifts we have to offer the world.
