It is a practical, fun and functional seminar with lessons that can easily be implemented on everyone’s routines.
“One may ask, why take this workshop? The answer is simple” says Dominguez, “To recognize the possibility of happiness here, now and always. We must understand the role happiness plays in our health; that we all have the unalienable right to be happy and to exercise it is our duty. Plus I cannot think of a better summer destination to star our journey to happiness other than the beautiful Fairmont Mayakoba”, she added”, she added.
