Join Susan Barocas and Michelle Buzgon as we concentrate on the sounds and rhythms of our breath, guided meditation and melodic singing to deepen our sense of reflection, well-being and ability to accept the joys and sorrows of each year of our lives. Open to all, whether new to mindful meditative practice or experienced.
