Holding Space in Uncertain Times
As we learn to live with the pandemic, many of us are struggling to live in the “now.” That “now,” with all of its uncertainty, doesn’t look like the life that we used to live or the life that we imagine we will return to. This foggy and uncertain space has a name — liminality. […]

Pandemic Week 5: Refresh & Renew
Hi all, Happy Easter and Spring Renewal. Our current situation is not how we’re used to celebrating this day and yet, maybe in some way, this forced solitude is what we need. Still, it can be challenging for all of us to deal with the emotions that are coming up. Maybe we could ignore them or […]

Pandemic Week 3: Tuning Into You and Our Recovery
How are you doing? As we enter week three of flattening the curve, early reports indicate California’s stay at home order is working. Please keep doing what you’re doing and stay home.
