Lesson Description

Healthy friendships help us reveal our truest selves and aid us in manifesting our purpose. Toxic friendships or "frenemies" can bring out our worst, distract us from achieving our higher goals and block blessings from our lives.

Identify which of your friendships are making you stronger and which ones are holding you back. As Monica Berg offers simple and effective spiritual rules for friendship while sharing personal stories in this interactive lecture. Topics for discussion include the danger of gossip & negative speech, avoiding jealousy & evil eye and even when it is healthy to hold a grudge (yes, we said healthy). Invest in your friendships by viewing this powerful lesson.
