Sometimes we humans don’t like the change we’ve encountered, whether it’s a loved one passing, a lost job, or a lost opportunity.

Neale's book When Everything Changes, Change Everything shares extremely vital tools to cope with change, the very thing that is always constant in our lives. If you're ready to take a closer look at the deep issues of change and how to deal with them, check out When Everything Changes, Change Everything.
