"Educating the Mind without Educating the Heart is no Education at all" - Aristoteles

In a changing world it is important to break old habits. We need to dive deep into who we are, to know what our purpose / our passion in life is. How do we want to create an impact in the next phase of our life? It is time to re-invent ourselves! 

It is of significant importance to prepare ourselves to live a long, healthy, meaningful and happy life.

The Wize Move Society is a place of Unlearning, Relearning, Creation and Innovation
