Student Testimonals:

“The full-spectrum approach taught in this course is refreshing, relatable and actionable. Marianne's authenticity shines through the material and I especially appreciated the agreement to maintain confidentiality within the course, and really liked the "I like/I wish" exercise, the personalized homework assignments, and all of the opportunities to share with each other. I learned a tremendous amount from my class mates and a lot about myself.”

"If you're looking for a well rounded investigation into who you are, why you do what you do, and where you're heading, you need to take this class."
