The Genius Break Challenge

“Mindfulness” is a term bandied about in so many books, articles and courses, it’s hard to know what is real and worth putting into practice.  We take this seriously so anything we recommend to the ex judicata community has been thoroughly vetted by us.  Translation, it is worth your time.

We are pleased to offer to the ex judicata community, at no charge, the Genius Break Challenge, an asynchronous program taught by bestselling author and yoga therapist, Dr. Suzie Carmack.
