Yolanda Koumidou-Vlesmas Inner Life Exploration's Groups

Loneliness and What to Do with It

This five-meeting group will focus on two specific questions: Where does loneliness come from? How to soothe it? We will talk about loneliness, its connection to spirituality and creativity and how it affects major decisions in our life. You will walk away with a renewed and fresh understanding of the state of loneliness and creative new ways of handling it.
