So many clients and students have been asking my thoughts at this strange and challenging time. I’ll share my current viewpoint and refer to some of my articles over the past year. I hope it offers some comfort and, as our world get momentarily narrower, I hope it also offers a wider view.
This is clearly a time when our vulnerabilities are being revealed, at the macro level – financial markets, manufacturing, health care, travel, and so on; and at the micro level – worry, anxiety, immunity, instability, income streams, employment norms. The previously covered up vulnerability of our minds, our health, our places of employment, our government is no longer hidden from view.
Could this have been predicted or prevented? Where is this headed? Will we be okay? These are the questions the mind naturally asks.
