Transitions, Resilience, and Healing through the Holidays
Mondays, November 16, 23; December 7, 14; January 4, 11; 6-7:30pm EST, online
This has been a year of great change, loss, and transition in our work, family, and community life. As we approach the holidays and the new year we may need to re-imagine not only our celebrations, but also continue to re-create ourselves and our daily living in these challenging times. Join Jessica Heller of Psychotherapy & Spirituality Institute (PSI) for these six interactive support sessions using the creative process to help heal body, mind, and spirit, as we explore together our sense of identity, presence, resilience, and our vision for what’s next.
