SWIHA - Life Coaching Program

What are our Great Graduates saying?

“The program blew me away. It helped me discover who I truly am. I went through a major personal transformation in the program. I loved when they taught us the difference between our head, heart and inner knowing. Learning the importance of listening to our guts or inner knowing--not just with our minds--was a crucial lesson for me.”

“Through the Life Coaching program, I learned so much about what we do to ourselves based on fear and resentment. It gave me permission to make new choices for my life and unplug from society on the “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts” while dedicating my life to helping others. There truly isn’t any higher form of service than helping others.”
