Guided Imagery Meditation

is coming to Ner Tamid!

Guided Imagery Meditation is a gentle and relaxing technique that focuses the attention and imagination on a peaceful setting. Also known as visualization, this practice is not only wonderful for relaxation but can also help with many other concerns such as stress and/or anxiety. Please join me for one, two, or all three of the upcoming sessions that I’ll be guiding on September 17th, October 8th, and October 22nd. Each session is 30 minutes and begins at 9:15am. Bring a yoga mat or blanket to ensure comfort, and please reach out to me should you have any thoughts or questions.

Sessions are donation-based; all proceeds will go to Ner Tamid.
