Take a respite from Covid-19 anxiety and fear
Life feels surreal. How could it change so drastically? A week ago we were dealing with our normal life and stresses. This week we live in a different world.
We are afraid of sudden change because our nervous system triggers our survival responses of flight /fight /freeze /fawn. We feel powerless. Afraid. Full of dread. What will happen? How will I know the best thing to do?

Women’s Healing Trauma Weekly Group
New session begins May 3
This is a small group of 10 women. By signing up for this, you are invited to be my guest for my Sunday 10AM class.
We need safe places to speak our truth. To be listened to, believed and experience the trust that grows from a foundation of kindness and respect. These classes can be that place.
Safety IS the treatment. In this experiential series of classes together we do practices to begin and deepen trust in yourself and nurture authentic kindness and compassion within. We cover the essentials of “how it works” so you understand your body, feelings, nervous system, shame, judgment and the essential role of social trust and connection. You strengthen your capacity to see through and release identification with experiences that commonly lead to core deficiency beliefs of unworthiness, unlovability – that feeling like there is something basically wrong with you.

The greatest gift you can give the world is a peaceful mind.”

What disturbs you, hooks you, makes you depressed or revs up catastrophic compulsive thinking? What gets in your way of experiencing a peaceful mind?
These are hard times right now and most people are struggling. The world feels less safe. We face an immense amount of financial and emotional stress. Many children and adults feel disconnected and isolated, looking for ease in screens, video games and other addictions.
The quote about a peaceful mind is from my meditation teacher Swami Veda. He was not telling us to ignore reality and think peaceful thoughts. He taught breathing, relaxation and meditation and he trained us in maintaining equilibrium and steadiness of mind even and especially when stressed.
When something is causing fear and distress, it will help if we don’t add the fear and chaos of our own mind to the universal energy field. Yes, do take action to help by working within our community or field of influence. Another valuable contribution is to work with our own mind.
