Building Freedom Within

The Building Freedom Within curriculum was developed by Cindy R. Lee, LCSW and is utilized at HALO Project International. It was the result of the need expressed by Making Sense of Your Worth facilitators and participants to continue the journey towards positive self-worth and authentic living.

The Building Freedom Within curriculum is designed as an eight-week, two hours a week, group class. It is run by a Making Sense of Your Worth Facilitator.  The curriculum is also designed to be adaptable for one-hour-a-week counseling sessions.


Here is what some of the participants and facilitators have said about the class:

  • “Working on my authentic self and applying the tools I learned through Building Freedom Within is a lifestyle change that provides the peace and freedom I didn’t understand before.  I will always be grateful.”
  • “Improving self-worth has been a game changer in my life.  I have a more positive outlook on myself and have tools in my toolbox to tackle life.  I no longer feel lost wandering mindlessly.”
  • “Through Building Freedom Within, I’ve seen myself and the people going through it along-side me develop a deeper confidence in living out our authentic selves. The best way to describe it, really is the title Building Freedom from Within.  It continues the work Making Sense of Your Worth lays the foundation for.”
  • “Building Freedom Within was a huge helpful follow up for me from Making Sense of Your Worth.  It helped me to dig another step deeper in my journey and solidify my knowledge of who I am.”
