It has often been said that happiness is a journey, not a destination. I view self-love the same way. There are countless ways to discover new and exciting things about yourself by venturing within as well as exploring the outside world.

Much of what I've learned over the years regarding self-love has been drawn from my intentional alone time, having a sense of adventure, and being fearless. The goal of this course is to teach others how to engage with themselves in ways that enhance their individuality and nurturing their self-expression.
