LOVING YOURSELF ALWAYS: A Guided Journey Mediation to Meet your Younger Self with Linzi Silverman
Self care is an essential part of a journey that requires endurance. Come meditate to be able to reenergize and refresh. One who cares for self, can then care for their neighbor, and they can care for their communities. Join in the powerful energy of a group mediation. Using breath and imagination we will move towards our subconscious and travel to beautiful natural landscapes. There awaits a younger version of yourself, a time when you idealized the world and believed anything is possible. Lately we have entered darker times, and mediation offers a safe space to let go of our stresses, to make room for stronger and more positive energies which can turn into action. By encountering yourself, you can receive your pure wisdom and reincorporate it back into yourself; find strength from where you have come from, where you are now, and where you are going.
