Why do you do what you do? How often do you reflect on the reasons you entered the field? For that reason, this training has been created to celebrate, empower, and remind healers, clinicians, and counselors of their reason why.   It is easy to become overwhelmed as a healer of the heart and mind. As a result, we often forget or ignore the extinguished fire of passion that once burned bright within. Therapists need encouragement too. This training will empower clinicians to go from rest to reset, rediscover their why, and refocus on how we move forward as empowered and inspired healers. Are you ready to reignite your fire? If so, this session is just for you.
