Mindful Meditation & Listening Circle with Jass

Zoom ID: 994 8013 1014
Password: mother

Offering a virtual space during these times of insecurity and isolation to come home to ourselves, replenish and reconnect. We will practice different guided meditations, bringing our minds home to our bodies, embracing our thoughts and emotions, and sending healing energy into the world.
The guided meditation will be followed by a listening circle. A listening circle is a safe, confidential space where we can share from the heart without being judged. We just offer our presence to each other to be seen and heard and give a voice to whatever is alive in us. No evaluation, no crosstalk.
