Have you always thought, and maybe still think, that needing/wanting connection is weak? Were you raised like us in a time that valued independence over interdependence?
We used to be (and sometimes still are) overly caught up in getting stronger, smarter, faster, fitter, happier, healthier, richer… And, we thought this all had to be done without needing any support from, or connection with, others! Both of us spent many agonizing years in a state of feeling lonely and disconnected from our self and others.
We’ve learned a lot from our own experience with burning out and suffering in our mind and body. One of our most valuable lessons has been that people are fundamentally designed to be interdependent. Connection is incredibly important for all human beings – no matter what the past was, currently situation is, or future may be.
There are many facets to connection and the more we explore it, the more inspired we feel. For us, connection is not something to learn or think about; rather, it’s a practice of awareness that shapes and shifts.
We invite you to consider your sense of connection:
With yourself - mind, body, spirit?
With others - friends, family, community?
With the world - environment, living creatures, nature?
Our engaging online programs explore the value of connection - in and out. We welcome people from all walks of life who are interested in achieving a greater sense of connection with self and others; including, family, partners, friends, community and beyond. We combine self-reflection and group practices, along with mindfulness, and Zen some! Check out our upcoming course schedule!
