Heal Your Life Workshops

Doras Buí holds workshops on Health and Wellbeing.  One of our workshops is Heal Your Life which runs for 6 weeks facilitated by Anita Whelan.  Next HYL workshop date will be announced when scheduled.

How I was behaving in life, releasing old beliefs, and conditioning could positively  impact my life.  But is it that simple for the next 6 weeks.  I will introduce you to some of the topics and how it impacted my life, and you can decide for yourself if the Heal Your Life Course is something you would like to do.

To grow and develop yourself and ultimately sculpture a life that leaves you feeling you have control over how you live your life, not your past, influences, family, or friends.  You are ultimately framing your own life.
