Emotional Wellness During COVID-19

The recent events of a global pandemic has far-reaching effects on all of us.

One of the pressing difficulties we currently face on a daily basis is the significant emotional toll of processing the information, risks, fears, and impacts of COVID-19 on our lives and the lives of those around us. The drain on our emtional reserves means we all run the risk of becoming emotionally unhealthy.

Being emotionally healthy means you understand your emotions and you have control over how you express them. Your emotions are your connectors, telling you about your world. It is healthy and natural to feel and express all of them. It is important, however, to find a safe place and way to express them, a place where your emotions are respected and honored. Improving your emotional wellness by learning to express your emotions in a constructive manner will benefit every aspect of your life.

We will provide that space as begin a 4-week class on August 5, 2020 — and you are invited to participate as we give ourselves permission to experience our current state of emotions and explore the idea that part of living well in the midst of great difficulty is to engage in a spiritual practice.

We will be meeting on Wednesday Nights from 6:00-7:15pm on ZOOM.

Dates: August 5, 12, 19, 25

The class includes the following sessions:

  • The Heart of Emotional Wellness
  • The Soul of Emotional Wellness
  • The Strength of Emotional Wellness
  • The Mind of Emotional Wellness

Each week will include group discussion, group exercises, and take home exercises to support your process.
