Every human has felt the presence of a Goliath. In place of a sword and shield your Goliath may brandish blades of unemployment, abandonment, or depression. He doesn’t roam ancient hills; he prances through your office, your bedroom, your classroom. He brings bills you can’t pay, addictions you can’t resist, a past you can’t shake, and a future you can’t face.
How long has your Goliath stalked you? Invaded your first morning thought and final night-time worry? Are your inner Goliaths growing?
Everyone has a problem so overwhelming it is seems gigantic. Whether your overwhelming problem is grief you can’t deal with, divorce that has ravaged your family, or an addiction that has a clamp on your willpower, this course will help you to look towards solutions.
