Meditation and Body Practice for calm and strength in difficult times
Our bodies are designed to respond to stress in short duration. The ongoing demands of the pandemic can tax the system if we don’t have the opportunity to rest and recharge. Using meditations, group discussion, and body-based experiencing, this group is about connecting to ourselves and others, and reconnecting to our ability to not just survive, but thrive despite these challenges.
