NOTICE TO APPLICANTS:
A RECENT MRI HAS SHOWN METASTATIC LESIONS IN MY ABDOMEN FROM A PREVIOUS CANCER THAT I HAD ALMOST 4 YEARS AGO. I HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE A FEW MONTHS REST AND WILL NOT BE OFFERING CLASSES UNTIL I SUCCEED IN TURNING THIS BEND SUCCESSFULLY BY NAVIGATING MY OWN PATH TO HEALTH THROUGH NUTRITIONAL AND ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES, LIKE I DID BEFORE.
I HOPE TO POST FUTURE CLASSES ON MY WEBSITE ASAP. I APOLOGIZE FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE TO YOU, BUT LOOK FORWARD TO PURSUING MY PASSION TO TEACH AGAIN VERY SOON.
