The Core Gift class was in and of itself a true 'gift' to me. The class got me in touch with what I had been pondering for awhile but couldn't put words to, couldn't connect my head and heart. The Core Gift questionnaire allowed me to look at myself and how I view life in a deeply personal way, unearthing the threads that not only connect me to others but ground me to my essential self. This is where I want to reside and come from as I move through the world. I am having to re-enter the working world after not working for 12 years. I'm encountering tons of negative voices, mainly from my inner critic. Being connected to my Core Gift centers me in a truth that I can't deny, I didn't pick it - it picked me. It also has a unique way of calming me while at the same time energizing me. Simple yet deeply profound!
