  • It is safe to take time to play today. Play fuels your creativity, tickles your Inner Child, and nurtures your soul.
  • As ACA becomes a safe place for you, you will find freedom to express all the hurts and fears you have kept inside and to free yourself from the shame and blame that are carryovers from the past.
