  1. Good sound advice from Aware.


    If you are prepared to put effort into reading and entering your thoughts into the course, you will get a lot from it. I was able to discover things about myself that I always knew were there but never spent the time to dig deep and uncover my thoughts behind them. Give it your time and you will feel better for it!

  2. Interesting Course
