If you’re a human being, you’re not likely to get through life without needing support at certain points. Whether you find yourself struggling with general discontent, or the loss of a relationship or job, life’s challenges can be viewed as invitations to shift, to grow and to move towards greater inner peace. Here are four programs designed to help you on the journey to personal and spiritual growth. —Monica Krake
