How are you finding peace?

Welcome to our November Newsletter.

How are you doing? For many of my clients, things feel heavy at the moment. I am having many conversations about the online discussions escalating into conflict and the need to switch off and find peace. I agree that when the amount of incoming messaging gets too much, we need to pause. And it’s also worth thinking about peace: what does it mean to us personally? I speak a lot in those newsletters about authentic communication, as well as rest and restoration – it is a base for healthy regulation of our emotions. And we always come back to humanity – how can we be authentically ourselves, and what do we need to heal and thrive? So many questions…answers are hard, complex and not always clear.

Sometimes, we may not even have any answers, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly okay to admit that things are hard, and that’s all. When we find ourselves in those heavy landscapes, it is incredibly important to reach out to someone else who can listen. We don’t need solutions when solutions are impossible. We need witnesses – a kind person to sit with us.

This month, I encourage you to look around and map out your support networks, including anonymous lines to call when talking to someone close becomes too much. I invite you to create a small menu of options for those darker days when we simply do not have the energy to do much – we will need this menu on hand.

At Voxel Hub, we have now wrapped up all events for 2023, and we are continuing to work hard on a few projects throughout the winter. Our private practice is growing steadily. I am especially excited to share that we have now added fully immersive VR to our toolkit – so our clients can experience coaching, counselling, and homework with Amelia XR’s support. I am starting work in Nature as well, so you will hear about this more in spring.
