Our world and lives are forever changed as COVID-19 works its way around the earth.
It spreads separation, anxiety, worry, fear, and overwhelm ahead of itself. In its wake, it leaves sadness, grief, mourning, loneliness, and more.
It also presents us with the opportunity to connect in ways and at depths we might not have ever connected before. We have the chance to listen to one another deeply. We can offer our simple presence to each other. We can share the gift of compassion together.
Please join Doyle Banks, NVC Educator, on Monday evenings from 7:00PM to 9:00PM Pacific for "Open For Empathy", an online gathering in which attendees share, listen and support in a safe and compassionate space.
REGISTER HERE. (Registration is free and it is required.)
We look forward to being with you.
Peace & Joy,
