Why Would You Take This Course?

The Lifelong Impact of Prenatal Life Course will shed great light on why it is so hard for civilizations to thrive. For millennia we have had the means and creativity, but until now always stumbled on ubiquitous conflicts. Wars, prisons and psychiatric asylums mare our nations, painful reminders of our inadequacy to engage in a collective harmony. We will see why and how knowledge, beauty and communion with life are chief ingredients of the alchemy that takes place in a fulfilling pregnancy – the very basis of an adulthood worthy of being human.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” ~ Frederick Douglas
