There is a new focus – and a new instructor – each month, with topics including clutter, food, relationships, and busyness. Each month’s curriculum includes written articles, audio/video recordings, and a live webinar where you can connect with the topic’s “simplicity advocate” to ask questions. An optional private Facebook group is also offered for interaction with like-minded people on the journey toward a simpler and more meaningful life.
