For decades, longtime LearningLife instructor Jerry Allan has espoused that "making" your life should be considered a creative process akin to that of composing a symphony, painting a picture, or writing a novel. His newest course, Reinventing Your Future
, is a workshop in applied creativity for those who seek a path that leads to happiness and fulfillment. Participants will use proven techniques to identify what they want and why, followed by creative strategies for action and follow through.
