Course Information

About the Course

Life has a way of making us forget and lose touch with our inner selves.

There are so many demands on our time and energy. So many obligations we try to meet. So many needs, wants and expectations placed on us by the people we care about. Is it any wonder that we lose touch with what we want, feel and know inside? That our own inner voice becomes barely a whisper?

What if you could stay in touch with a deep sense of your true self – your Inner Voice – right in the middle of life’s chaos? What if you were able to access that place whenever you need to? Even when you’re on the go. Even when you feel harried. And yes, even when you need to make a decision while interacting with your kids, your job or your partner?

Psychologist Helene Brenner, Ph.D. developed her methods for accessing and listening to the inner self while being a mother and a busy professional with a full-time practice helping other busy people connect with their inner selves. Join Helene to learn and practice, with her guidance, an array of powerful techniques for quickly accessing and trusting the wisdom of your inner voice. Learn how to align yourself with your inner being and bring greater clarity and peace of mind to your daily life, even in the midst of your very busy lifestyle.
