ONLINE Cultivate Contentment (5 days)

Monday, June 15 - Saturday, June 20 @ 7:00–8:30pm (skipping Friday)

ONLINE: This 5-session course will take place via Zoom. The link will be sent to registrants at least an hour before the first class.
Note that there is not class on Friday.


What is your emotion of the day? Shock? Dread? Panic? Despondency? Curiosity? Optimism? Perhaps it changes day to day, minute by minute? Nothing you feel is wrong, you just may not want to wallow in the fearful end of the spectrum. Awareness and honesty will stand you on your feet in your experience. Stability comes from within, not from our external security blankets that are being torn to shreds.

Find supportive community as we discuss the challenges of this rocky, but transformative, time. Stepping into the unknown is unsettling, but we can do it. The confidence and creativity required is hiding right behind the fear.

Together, let's envision the world we want to see on the other side of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

There may be a couple of special guest appearances during the course!


  • the 5 causes of stress
  • processing feelings
  • heartfelt communication
  • staying constructive
