Meditation: Emotional Healing


with DIANA MINUTELLI, Noble Adult & Community Education

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 6, 2020 at 6:30 pm

We go through life dealing with a lot of emotions. Some emotions are dealt with in the moment while others are simply swept under the rug. Emotions can build up over time, and we so often get overwhelmed with feelings that we just don’t know how to deal with them. In this class, you will be gently guided through meditation to go deep within and reconnect with yourself to help release past holdings and stresses.
