If you’d like to connect and process with others, join this hour-long, lunchtime group. You could drop in once, or make it a habit (joining weekly on Wednesdays).
Processing the Pandemic with Heart-Head-Hands
Wednesdays at 1pm EDT | 12pm CDT | 11am MDT | 10am PDT
These processing groups are intimate spaces (like small-group coaching) that support reflection, somatic awareness, and grounded re-commitment. Each week a new question frames the session, and we follow the same format: introductions, guided meditation, freewriting, and then conversation.
During the time together, we use contemplative practices (guided meditation and freewriting) to ground and guide a conversation about how we’re experiencing, navigating, and meeting the individual and collective demands of this time.
We prioritize storytelling, reflect on lived experiences, and set intentions, responding to three questions that connect the heart, head, and hands:
- Heart: What are you feeling?
- Head: What are you thinking?
- Hands: What are you doing (or able, willing, and ready to do)?
Together, we consider what’s demanded of us for living relationally and responsibly, for caring for ourselves and others, and for striving toward justice (social, racial, and environmental justice).
When will the group be offered?
Currently, I’m offering sessions through the fall, each taking up a question to guide conversation:
How do I relate (functionally and dysfunctionally) to rest?
What am I actively, daily practicing? (Because we’re always practicing something.)
How do I relate to money and resources?
How can I better recognize and honor full humanity, complexity, and wholeness?
What commitments guide both the everyday and the long-haul work of striving toward justice?
How do we strengthen and grow emotional courage and stamina?
How are we sitting with (or resisting) discomfort?
What’s this election demanding of us, personally and collectively?
What am I feeling, thinking, and doing today (day after the election)?
What stories are unraveling or asking to be revisited and retold?
When, where, and how am I showing up as my best self? As my worst self? And why?
When, where, and how do I feel limited in the ways I’m showing up? And why?
How do we (dis)honor our own and others’ capacities for showing up?
What is the cost?
Anyone can attend for free.
