Whole-Hearted Healing® Practice Quiz
Dec 6, 1999

This quiz covers some of the material in our website as well as some material taught at our Whole-Hearted Healing workshop. The questions are sometimes written from a therapist's viewpoint, but also apply to people using these processes on their own. We've put them on the web to aid people who are doing self study. It's also a good chance to see how much you already know. Enjoy!
