LLMC stats – before and after the course

The focus of the my Master’s Degree Program at the University of New Hampshire was: Women, Spirituality & Well-Being. The culmination of the program integrated well with my two decades of experience with yoga, spirituality, well-being, women, aging, coaching, and personal development.

Below are some of the outcomes from the 8-week LIVING LIFE, MAKING CHOICES course that was my final project.  The intention of the course was to introduce the concept of living with purpose and awareness and for participants to examine if they noticed an increase in happiness and/or well-being by focusing on their thoughts, actions, reactions, emotions, and choices as well as paying attention to goals and visions for various aspects of their lives career/business, financial, relationships, and community).

A pre and post survey asked participants to evaluate various aspects of the course learning objectives.

The statistics below denote the change from the beginning of the program to the end (8 weeks later).
