When GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Laura Wright (Carly) began her training to become a certified meditation teacher last June, she wasn’t thinking she’d actually do any teaching. “My intention was to deepen my practice and learn more for myself,” the actress explained to Soaps In Depth. “I was excited to do it for me… but I had trouble seeing myself teaching, because meditation is such an incredible ancient practice and I couldn’t imagine I’d learn enough.
