"Madly in Love with ME!" : A "Daring Adventure" Group for Women

Days: TBA

Location: TBA

Start: October 18, 2013

Cost: Free for students who have paid the health fee

About:

Do you feel guilty about taking care of yourself, but do not hesitate
(and even feel good about) caring for others?
Are you pursuing happiness rather than experiencing it?

Does nourishing your soul come only after meeting (all) your obligations?

If you answered "Yes" to these questions, join our group, where we will learn to become our own best friend, and consider the following: If our souls are starving from malnourishment, we can never have the impact that we desire on the world and those close to us...no matter how hard we work.
