...find clarity and harmony

“Barbara's workshop goes beyond stress management and helps you find clarity and harmony in both personal and career.  For me it came at a great time in my life – toward the end of the year – to be able to align the new year in harmony.  Thanks to this, I have found more presence, moment-to-moment.”
