This module addresses the fundamental component of all successful practices: purpose. As healers, we are often tasked with creating intentional services/programming and products that aid our clients and communities on their healing journeys. It is not enough to “hang a shingle” with our names on it, buy a couch and a couple of chairs, and open for business! We are called to operate at a higher level of being, a level that is client-centered first, business-centered second! This module encourages participants to become clear about their “why” by examining values, desired impact, goals, areas for development, and more!
