The Resilient you
I still vividly remember what it was like to be a child; retreating to the safety of hiding under my covers filled with fear, sadness, and anxiety. Although my parents didn't realize at the time, I would catch a glimpse of them watching the news and the horror of the world's realities.
This past week, as I listened, processed, and watched the news, just as I did as a child, those same feelings came up for me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yet instead of hiding from those emotions we often deem as negative, bad, or weak... I used the tools of my practice to allow myself to be with them, be curious about them, and acknowledge them. To me the process of resiliency involves vulnerability, curiosity, and acceptance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
With so much going on in our world as it is, many of us are simply just trying to survive.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes, it is very loud right now.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes, there is a lot out of our control.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, there is still so much within our control. It all begins by recognizing our own power. Let's not give it away. ⠀
I believe now more than ever it is imperative that we regain our personal power and find our inner resilience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am co-leading a workshop with my dear friend and mindfulness teacher Orlee Klempner called The Resilient You. Together we will share valuable tools, refuge, and community. I invite you to join us.

Hi, I'm Lauren and I am here to support people to find freedom in being authentic and the power to carry that out in their lives and community. Writing is one way I like to explore that for myself. Here is my archive of reflections.
