In the midst of social distancing, are you feeling disconnected?
Are you leading a group (from your family, to your business) that you know could flow more smoothly...but aren't sure how?
As the SpiralMethod team grows, and during such extreme circumstances in the world, we are leaning in to these questions and our desire for genuine connection more than ever.
We decided to record a mini SpiralMethod event of our team together on Zoom, because we thought it would be helpful for you to see what a session looks like and how simple it is to connect more deeply, even in a short period of time.
I’m wondering if you are feeling like you or your groups are floating out there a bit? And would you like to get your groups connected AND serve others?
I am talking with people all day every day, and those people are connected to a lot of other people and people. From what I’m hearing there are two groups right now. Some that are pretty calm, and a larger group, about 60%, are not doing so well. Ranging from not wanting to get out of bed, working way too much, overwhelmed between work and kids, not having a schedule, fear or even terror….and a longing to be able to hug and congregate with each other again.
All, or at least most, of our normal structures for social interaction and communing have disappeared.
Most of us are starting to come to terms with the fact that a whole new way of socializing is upon us, and it’s probably going to last a lot longer than we’d thought or would like....
When are we going to get back to normal? How do I make decisions until then? And more importantly, when is this whole thing going to go blow over?
If you're asking these questions, this is very normal inside of any disruption where it feels like the ground is being taken out from under you. This is what we ask when we just want to get back to how things were. I'm here to help. There are six specific things for you to remember right now and keep an eye on as you navigate this for your own individual wellbeing, as well as the people that you're serving and the collective wellbeing.
If we are aware of the process that we're going through, we will have a much easier time navigating these waters of disruption. I'm Leslie Jones. I am on a mission to end the...
Throw a group of people together into one space, add sugar and alcohol, stress from daily life, worry about the state of the world, and plenty of passion and opinions about how to fix things. Now stir in family history and family dynamics with decades of patterning and you’ve created the perfect environment for misinterpretation, tension, stress, pretense, survival, and blow-ups. It’s a miracle we still expect to leave our holiday gatherings feeling connected and restored! Yet, most of us continue to have high hopes (often forgetting how last year ended up) and look forward to our time with family.
Whether this explains your family to a tee, or you are one of the unique situations where your family gets along swimmingly, here’s a bold idea that will help create another level of intimacy and nourishment for all.
Set the communication stage!
