EVENTS

September 17 and 24, October 1 and 8, 2021
Time: 9:00 am - 10:30 am Eastern Time
Contribution: $49 - $89

We all go through times in our lives where we crave more “me time.” We are always so busy and always on the go - so connected to the outside world but so disconnected from the world within ourselves. Returning back to normal seems like one of those times. 

 

It’s like we have two voices in our heads saying different things. One telling you to carve out space for yourself, to pause and go within, and another one reminding you of all the things on your to-do list, and that there is no time for pausing or going within. What most of us don’t realize is that the space we create for ourselves to just be and tune inward can only amplify our ability to create and do from a place of balance, joy, and truth. If you haven't had the time to pause and are feeling rushed back to normal as if nothing changed in the past year, while you know everything has. This workshop is for you.

Group Relations International a global nonprofit organization with a mission to create a better world - together is offering Recharge and Reflect: Navigating the return to “Normal”, a 4 week workshop for holding space, setting intentions, and exploring what it means to return to “normal.” In this workshop, people from around the world will navigate the terrains of their pandemic experience through meeting virtually once a week for a total of four times. Each session will explore the various phases and elements we want to bring and leave behind as we go back to normal, this time with intention. Each session is designed for bringing deeper self-exploration and self development for the participants. 

Key Takeways -

1) Gain a deeper understanding of how you want to show up personally and professionally 

2) Connect and learn from individuals going through similar and yet varied life experiences 

3) Discover new tools that bring you closer to navigating the new normal with intention. 

The group will be facilitated by Tanisha Jain, who will hold space for experiencing, exploring, learning, and discovering potential and possibilities. She will guide the group to make meaning of these new experiences. 

Content 

We will meet for 90 minutes once a week for four weeks. The four sessions are structured around the following questions: What lessons from the pandemic do you want to take into the new normal and what do you want to leave behind? How do you want to show up personally and professionally? What does recharging and reflecting look like on a regular basis for you? What choices do you have as you continue on your return to normal?
