The Rhythm of Now has profoundly changed — in this time we call life.
We don’t know what day it is. “Tuesday is the new Wednesday.” Everyday rituals are topsy-turvy. We can’t get our hair cut or feel assured that we we’ll leave the grocery store without a scary disease. We may not hug our loved ones. Or visit them in the hospital. We don’t know if our finances will hold up. Or when our kids can go back to school. We are living through the deepest uncertainty we’ve ever known.
Anxieties, fears, holy-shit moments — and plenty of them.
So what do we do now? How do we create our days? Situate ourselves within a new normal that is anything but the normal we’d counted on?
Our hours in life past appeared to be self-filling. Time slots, prepopulated with schedules and routines. Things to do. Things that we always did.
How do we find our way when it is nowhere to be found?
I invite you to sit with me. For us to sit together. Let’s discover what emerges in a sacred listening space. Let us find a new way with our “one wild and precious life.” *
