Andrea feels that one of the major challenges of our times is that people lack self-knowledge, which leads to a deep sense of separation with others and the planet. This sense of separation creates a false perception of reality that leads to suffering and self-destruction that is then reflected in the way people relate to one another and the environment. At the core of humanity’s most pressing issues, there is a desperate need to awaken to a more balanced sense of reality. Her biggest goal is to assist individuals in that process of realignment to help them awaken to inner peace, prosperity and unity.
