Tara Maazel, LCSW


How can we build our internal resources to improve resilience in both our mind and body? Through guided visualization, creative expression, and somatic exercises, we’ll learn how to connect with our bodies and explore our own agency to influence and change internal states that may often seem outside of our control. This online session will culminate with the creation of our own sanctuary space to bolster resilience and increase autonomy over our internal experiences.
