Concentration – Developing attention skills through meditation training.
Wisdom – Understanding one’s biases, labeling, projection and pre-judgment. Increasing emotional intelligence and learning to respond rather than react.
Values – Living a meaningful life. Developing healthy habits and responses that are in alignment with one’s personal values.

“I am a teacher and appreciate that many people can be trained to teach curriculum. However, Dusty’s personality and demeanor makes him especially suited for teaching a course like this. I don’t know that I’ve met many people who are so naturally kind and supportive.” —Liz, Recent course participant
