Session 1: Diagnose Your Reality

When someone asks you, “how are you doing?” what do you say? And how do you really feel? In this session, you will learn about two tools. The Peace Index – identifies the five areas that create our level of peace; and the 70:30 Principle provides a guideline to assure a healthier balance as we go about our day-to-day.
