COVID Forgiveness Healing and Optimism

  • Wednesday, September 01, 2021
  • 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

Following our Forgiveness and Optimism webinar with Stanford’s Professor Fred Luskin and the Centre for Optimism, we decided to provide space for a Covid Healing Space for our Tribes.  We decided on 1 September being the change of season in the south from Winter to Spring and in the north from summer to a beautiful Autumn.

We felt that a vigil where people come together over a set time of day in an unstructured way to express gratitude, note hurts or concerns either privately or publicly, let go of the past and emerge ready for new beginnings, could be a cathartic and helpful experience. The science of mass trauma suggests that such a ritual is helpful, both emotionally and neuro-chemically.  

The Four Themes will run for half an hour each:

  • Forgiveness and Suffering
  • The Mindset for the Pandemic
  • Healing
  • Optimism
