'Being Centred' developed from the belief that for a person to resolve issues, make decisions and find inner contentment within themselves, they need to first begin to feel connected with their own being and personhood - to feel a sense of being centred within themselves and who they are. To have a sense of being in relationship with oneself and the world around oneself enables a person to move readily with the ebb and flow of life.
