Please join us for a virtual evening with researcher and author Becca North PhD, as we explore her work around how society views failure and how we might change our perspective to one focused on personal growth and happiness. Failure impacts us in various ways and within different areas of our lives, and Dr. North approaches these areas with a unique and interdisciplinary background. 

Please consider reading Dr. North's book, Your Hidden Superpowers: How the Whole Truth of Failure Can Change Our Lives, before attending our event and come armed with questions! The format of the event will be part "presentation," part "Q & A," allowing our attendees to dig deeper and learn how to tap into their resources - unleashing health and breakthroughs.
