Transformation Meditation – A New Year, An Evolved You – Manifest with Intent in 2017! Transformation usually involves the shedding of old ways, especially those that have become burdens. No matter who you are, no matter what has already happened to you, no matter what you have done, it is still possible to be and do something new. During this meditation experience, we will journey through 2016 and explore the many lessons gifted to you. We will then embark on a clear and courageous goal setting ritual for your new year. We will be creating a vision board for you to take home to enhance your success! The meditation is offered by Caitlin Peterson, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Hypnotherapist, and will take place at the NFSB Annex, on 169 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ 07110.
