9-session Course Meditation & Mindfulness
Discover the Gifts in Loneliness

About this course

Nearly everyone experiences loneliness at some point in their lives, but if we look at it the right way, we can start to understand that solitude points us inward, offering up wisdom we didn’t even know we needed. In this course on getting in touch with your own awesomeness (even if you feel anything but), meditation teacher Yael Shy teaches mindfulness tools to help you understand what your lonely feelings are trying to tell you, ultimately bringing more acceptance, worthiness, and love into your life.
