Expecting the Unexpected: Establishing Trust and Setting Boundaries in These Unique Times
While establishing expectations is a healthy and holy practice, it’s not always an easy one. And in these times, when even our daily plans and hopes can change in sudden and sometimes significant ways, it can be even more challenging to feel like there is a constancy to life that we can truly root our expectations in. So, how do we navigate the unexpected? How do we plan well amidst uncertainty? How do we practice healthy boundaries around what is expected of us, and what we expect of others? Join us for a time of conversation and practices designed to explore these questions, and offer opportunities for reflection and wellness for our souls. Our time will be spent as a combination of online discussion, offline activities, and group processing through Zoom.
