Before this class I had never heard the term ‘purposeful living’. But, over several weeks I have come to know it as living my life in alignment with my dharma – the purpose of my soul in this life.

As a result of growth during the program, I have no fear of failure, know more personal peace, have become more content and cheerful in many circumstances than before; have a sincere belief that I have the ability to create the world that I live in, and know ways to continue to evolve and grow.
