What makes DUO PLUS unique?
- Honouring the wisdom of the heart. All healing comes through the heart using our emotional intelligence (EQ): intuition, resilience, compassion, trust, creativity, and personal power.
- Siegfried Gutbrod (The Gawler Foundation) said, “Emotions influence our wellbeing more than thoughts. Feelings go straight to the heart. Appealing to one’s emotions often works more effectively than a ‘rational’ discourse.”
