Affirmation Playlist - May 18 at Noon

Creating a positive view of yourself can sometimes be met with challenges. Music can bring you closer to navigating when we are feeling a little less than kind to ourselves by providing a different perspective on life and even our emotional well-being.

In this session, Raven Bransom, will guide attendees in creating an affirmation playlist that will help us navigate through those times when we are feeling we need extra support.

No materials will be necessary, however come with songs that best describe you.
