How to be here and what to do, now?
In a unique opportunity of these times of uncertainty, anxiety, and - sometimes - mindless fear, we can take stock, breathe together, share feelings together, and give mindful consideration to the two pronged question above.
Being and doing: First embrace - as best we can - the routines and boundaries that the pandemic imposes upon us, and then begin to invest in our new future: personal, collective and ecological.
What qualities will we bring to our human being and our human doing? In ‘what ways’ will we be and do? Only you have the answer to that question, and so do I, etc, etc, etc. It’s a question of personal values. Though we had best consider the collective interest too because - “what’s bad for the hive is bad for the bee” (Marcus Aurelius)
Our drop-in group is a regular 90 minute opportunity for (mostly) local folks to debrief of their experience from the previous month - in the deep listening of “collective presencing”. We practice mindfulness, compassion and acceptance and reorientate towards the challenges and opportunities of the future.
Whenever it becomes time to rebuild the “back to work economy” let’s aim for a more inclusive, more equitable, more sustainable, more loving & compassionate way of being and doing? And let’s begin to create that now - in this time that is becoming known as “The Big Pause” - What a blessing (however mixed).
Thank you, Gaia for your viral message - stopping us in the tracks of our headlong rush towards terminal ecological catastrophe; let’s gratefully accept the big pause and consider carefully about where we’re heading before revving up our fossil fuelled engine again?
The weekly drop-ins are offered on a dana basis: free of charge, donations accepted with gratitude - see www.bwis.online/dana
