What happens when we take time to pause and notice how it feels to be in the world?
Might we not just notice our own struggles and feelings but perhaps sense ourselves as part of a bigger global situation?
It would be hard to be alive and not have some feelings about what is happening around us? Ecologically, socially and politically.
How can we face these huge issues without being overwhelmed and with a sense of potency and creativity?
How can we find a meaningful way to respond to them? How can we find our own medicine for the world?
