Teaching & Certification

Lance Secretan is one of the most intriguing persons I have ever met. His uniqueness is captivating and inspirational. Listening to his teachings my soul immediately resonated with joy bursting into an inner calmness and peace. Years of unanswered questions had come to a halt. Mystery solved: I live life from my essential self; the soul not the ego. Living a life that is inspiring and inspire others. How liberating. Now, I am on a journey to share Lance’s teachings with family, friends, students, and others to make this world a better place.
