Neal Donald Walsh, author of the Conversations with God books, says “If you do not offer your loved ones freedom, you do not offer them love.” 

Osho said “Freedom must be the center and love the circumference of healthy relationships.” 

This course is for friends, lovers, spouses, parents and all who see the connection between freedom of choice or autonomy and the growth of a true and healthy love in relationships.

"Prepare yourself for some unsettling and unconventional answers to the big questions of happiness and relationships.  Kelly's real life stories, humor and refreshing theories teach the mechanics of integrity and authenticity.”
