Online Natural Highs Video Courses
If you are not able to attend a Natural Highs Course in person you can participate in a live recorded workshop so you are not missing out on a sense of community. Every Natural Highs course is unique and is co-created by the questions and input of the participants. Online Courses cannot fully substitute the sense of community in person so we highly recommend supplementing an Online Natural Highs Course with participating in online live hangouts or the WhatsApp Natural Highs group.
