We are all facing an unprecedented moment with the Covid-19 pandemic where we are being challenged on every level. We are surrounded by fear and concern for ourselves, our loved ones, the vulnerable people we serve, those on the front lines, our communities and our shared human family. This is not easy. What a crazy paradox that we are being asked to live in isolation from each other when we need each other now as never before.
We know that the answer to stress, fear, distress and trauma is connection. We need each other. We need to come together. And we have the way to do it - through our GPS Groups.
GPS is responding to this crisis by offering FREE online support groups nationwide. We are creating safe places of compassion and support where we can express our deepest feelings and be supported and heard.
Online support groups are open to all GPS trained facilitators nationwide, whether you have run groups or not.
We know that many of us will be experiencing increasing difficulties over the coming weeks and that in order to best meet the challenges before us we need to come together and have a place to grieve, rage, share our concerns and our heartbreak. Together we can also find our resilience, strength and hope. It is critical that we fill our own tanks at this moment when we are all functioning at our full capacity.
Please join us for one of our online support groups. We want to be with you. We want to support each other. We want to stay connected even during this tremendously difficult time.
With Love and Compassion,
Annette and Liz
