Connecting Through Shared Values
As COVID-19 continues keeping many of us home, one thing has become abundantly clear …
The need for meaningful human connection is more critical now than it was BC, before Covid.
Brene Brown captured the value of that kind of connection beautifully:
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
Before Covid, we could give and receive that sustenance and strength face to face. We could meet for a good meal and a meaningful conversation that started and ended with a hug.
After Covid, at least for the moment, we need to meet at a distance as we pledge to keep each other safe.
That also means we need to find NEW ways to help each other feel seen, heard and valued. Because we’ve never needed to lean on each other more than we do right now.
Fortunately, our energy never has been confined by time or space, even when it may have appeared that way.
As humans, we were designed to share energy, thought, even inspiration at a distance … even though many of us have lost the conscious awareness of that capability.
No matter what our perceived barriers are, we can provide each other with the sustenance to carry us through our days and nights — without physically touching each other.
One way we’re committing to do that is by creating the kind of online community we would want to be a part of ourselves …
Join us there to connect through our deepest core values …
Authentic Connection: We believe meaningful connection bolsters the human spirit in a fundamental way that nurtures security, happiness and joy.
Personal Integrity: We believe being authentic and honest — with ourselves and with others — creates a level of trust we can each depend on.
Loving Kindness: We believe the gift of sharing loving kindness with every sentient being is its own reward.
If any of these speaks to you, come join us in uplifting ourselves and others.
And while Facebook has its pitfalls, it’s still the place we can reach the most people.
People who desperately need the loving kindness you’re here to share.
So we’re doing our part to make it — and our healing community — a force for GOOD in the world.
