Processing the Pandemic with Heart-Head-Hands
Wednesdays at 1pm EDT | 12pm CDT | 11am MDT | 10am PDT
Individually and collectively, we’re sitting with a LOT in this moment, including a lot of uncertainty, change, and calls for action. In response to requests and because I’m also desiring community, I’m offering this holding space to process the pandemic and what’s emerging and changing at this time.
If you’d like to connect and process with others, consider joining an upcoming hour-long, lunchtime group. You could drop in once, or make it a habit (joining weekly on Wednesdays).
During the time together, we’ll 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’ll 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’ll consider what’s demanded of us for living relationally and responsibly, for caring for ourselves and others.
When will the group be offered?
Currently, I’m offering sessions through August, each taking up a question to guide conversation:
What truths are asking to be told?
What are you longing to block (obstruct, stop, prohibit) and to build (create, inspire, fuel) this summer?
How do we approach Independence Day and national rhetoric differently — toward redressing harms?
How do we tear down the tyranny of positivity and tend to our full emotions?
What does grieving look like now?
What is becoming intolerable and demands real change?
What critiques (critiques against and critiques for) are crystallizing at this time? In other words, what are we learning and unlearning now?
What commitments guide our feeling, thinking, and doing (heart-head-hands) heading into fall?
How do we build more accountable lives?
What brings us closer to “right relationship” with food and all that food is connected with, including humans, non-human animals, and the earth?
What is the cost?
Anyone can attend for free.
If you’d like to drop into a session without joining Patreon, then consider contributing $10 (like a class drop-in fee).
After registering, you’ll receive information for joining a private meeting room in Zoom.
If there’s interest, I’ll continue to organize these lunchtime holding spaces: let me know if you’d be interested in learning about upcoming dates.
Who will facilitate this webinar?
This program is offered by Beth Godbee, Ph.D., a public educator with deep commitments to social, racial, and environmental justice.
How do I schedule a holding space like this for my group?
I’m happy to tailor this conversation for an organization or local group, and I regularly offer interactive online workshops. Reach out with inquiries.
