We're in the midst of our three-day 45th Annual Hartman Conference!  Day One is complete and Day Two is tomorrow.  We'll wrap up with Day Three on November 9th.


I'm inspired and full of appreciation for our presenters and this community. It was a joy to watch the Day 1 sessions again, via the recordings, which are available to all registrants.


The work we do and these sessions we join fill us with purpose and direction.  Robert S. Hartman reminded us: "You must have the feeling that you here for a reason. If you have that feeling you have intrinsic depth;  if you don't have it, well, then you have to develop it."   (Find more quotes from @drroberthartman on Instagram).


Don't miss this Goodness!


Grow your intrinsic depth by watching the recordings for Day One, or by joining us for Day Two - tomorrow, Tuesday, October 5.  Get recording and registration details here → www.hartmaninstitute.org/2021-annual-conference


With Appreciation, 

Suzie Price
RSHI Board President
