Feeling the wonderful warmth of our community during our Vigil for COVID Forgiveness Healing and Optimism, the optimism teams and tribes with to offer a similar space on Australia's RUOK Day.
This year the RUOK message is: Are they really OK?
We feel in the fog of pessimism, we can offer a question responding to that challenge, "What makes you optimistic?" and a set of practices to make you more optimistic.
The design of the the event is still fluid and we would be delighted if you wanted to offer a song, a poem or a meditation. Please feel free to bring a friend, children and colleagues.
Plan at this stage:
12:00 Opening and encouragement to participate
12:05-12:20 How’s it feel to be asked: RU really OK? or What makes you optimistic? …when you don’t feel OK?
Breakout room discussion for 10-15 minutes and bring back insights to the big room
12:20-12.30 Singing, Poetry
12:30-12.50 What actions help build hope and optimism?
12:55 5 minute Compassion Meditation Guided by Victor Perton
