This week's question asks:
How do digital communications impact compassion, belonging, and wellbeing? In what ways do they enhance and in what ways do they hinder these things?
Take a moment to reflect on how digital technology has shaped our lives. There are pros and cons undoubtedly, and so I invite you to share your thoughts on how online communications have impacted compassion, belonging, and our overall sense of wellbeing.
Lovely words as always Rachel! I loved the many bits of wisdom peppered throughout this piece. This is a beautiful reminder to come back to the beginner's mind - and to slow things down. I often find myself walking quickly (I picked that up from my mother), rushing to get somewhere always... to escape this present moment. I will use your words as a soft nudge to take my movements with greater ease today.
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing Dawn. Do you have some kind of routine around this? And what is your preferred way of self-reflecting (i.e. meditation, journaling, while in nature)? I'd love to hear more.
I hope this post finds you all safe and well in these continued uncertain days.
I published a new blog post on my website last evening, and I wanted to share it with our community here. Always, any feedback or wonderings it brings up are warmly welcomed!

Wishing you ease as the week begins.
