When you change your perspective, it expands your ability to give support to people, rather than acting from frustrated energy, or trying to change someone. The energy you bring to the day affects you, him or her, and those around everyone.
Tryn Rose will share how you can create the place in yourself where you can give respectful, generous energy and attention to another. It benefits everyone.
