Overview

Welcome to the course! Here, Andrew introduces the Going Forth program.

"There is more satisfaction to come from seeing the true nature of things than there is from disguising their true nature."

Going Forth is comprised of eight units. Each lesson is intended to be undertaken in the space of a week, allowing for time to absorb the material, reflect on it, and integrate it into your life. All of the material is available immediately, and you are free to progress at your own pace, on your own schedule.
