As a Life Coach, BPD, and Mental Health Coach, A.J. Mahari has become keenly aware that, increasingly, people are coming to more fully understand how important it is to develop their life skills.

The mystery of understanding seeks to engage us in a journey of living an examined life. A journey of seeking personal enlightenment. Do you find that there are aspects of your life that just seem to defy your understanding in actual and purposefully consciously aware ways? Are you a seeker of more personal enlightenment when it comes to aspects of your relationships, your attitude, your moods, and your over-all choices in your life?
