The training will first focus on mindfulness, and its value in living life to the fullest. Then the training will move to learning how to help a client explore their past life plan, and review their values, as the starting point for creating a new plan for their lives. It will include components of a workable life plan, and how to create goals and steps to accomplish them. Participants will end up with practice in writing their own life plan.
