New York Yearly Meeting invites you to a Meeting for Feelings each Friday morning at 10am Eastern—a safe space for young Friends to learn about and understand their emotions using song, dance, and simple art projects. Joy Meikle and her puppet buddy, Aura, look forward to experiencing connection, peace, and fun with fellow members of their Quaker community. This offering is designed for ages 3-5yrs old, but all ages are welcome. Please learn more and register to receive the link here: https://nyym.org/content/meeting-feelings
