Who you are is not defined by your mistakes, but by your potential.

It is time to take stock and take care in a place where your best interests are not only looked after, but discovered.

Simplify your life so you can cope with complexity. Accept your past so you can create your future.

Experience serenity in the absence of suffering. Face weakness with strength, and fear with courage.

Discover where your best self takes form and your best efforts take shape.

Professionals guide you to find the value in your values. Peers support you with understanding and trust.

Rituals that confine you are replaced by ones that expand you and healthy risk taking is encouraged.

This is Two Dreams

Making the deliberate choice to Love, to Work, to Play
