What is The Process Like?

Every week, receive a new detailed study guide linked to an authentic document  (podcast, texts, videos)  that you will explore on your own before our meeting. During our meeting, we will discuss your thoughts on the document. After our session, you will be provided with personalized journaling prompts to continue your introspection in writing. A feedback and corrections will be shared with you before the start of the next week.

More autonomous work, more guidance, more flexibility.

Less time spent « filling » the hour with small talk.
