How do you rest and reflect?
Welcome to our December Newsletter. As we enter the final month of this year, I am noticing the overwhelming need of my clients, friends and communities to slow down and to restore. So I hope that if you can, you are making time for yourself. It can be incredibly healing to step away from a busy daily schedule, make time to sit and think. Reflecting on what this year means to us. How unveiling is the current reality. How we have embraced the benefits of technology and online connection in pandemic times. And how we finally seem to be moving away from our individualising, isolated perspectives towards more collective wellbeing for the future of our kind and our planet. That is what I see in my networks. How was this year for you and your community?
This month I am focusing my work and intention on solidifying my anti-racist practice. In fact, at the end of this week, I will be finishing the first UK anti-racist therapist training and I am openly pledging to work towards a more equal and equitable work here at Voxel Hub. I hope you can join me in this commitment to learning, growing and inspiring change.
As we approach the end of 2021, I would also like to wish you all a soft and peaceful holidays season, however, you choose to mark this season.
I wish you a soft and kind December!
