One of the things I love most about MKY is our community -- no, make that family. We are blessed to have so many wonderful members. And we make a point of fortifying our connection by allowing time and space for sharing. We do this so that each of us can remember and feel that none of us is alone.
On Monday nights in my free online Meditation classes, students are invited to share with each other about their experience after each meditation. We get to hear about the aha moments and how the mind sometimes won't settle down. Whether it's a deep beautiful moment or an imperfect attempt, we share with each other about the journey of meditation.
On Thursday nights in Cate's Release the Stress of the Day online classes, we share what's weighing on us. We listen to each other and unburden ourselves.
At our Full Moon Events (most often led by Savitri and Cate), we share what we are ready to let go of. It always warms my heart to hear what our members share. Open and honest with no judgment. We hold space. We do not criticize or offer advice. You realize that whatever you are going through, you are not alone.
Years ago, I was in group therapy for 6 months (more on that in a future blog) and the most powerful thing I took away from that was that again, I was not alone. As bad a time that I was going through, other people had struggles too. I was not alone.
Sharing in all these experiences, I believe is such a powerful tool to help people heal.
In closing, I strongly encourage you to join our family and to be brave and share what you need to share, feel the support of a compassionate community and know that you are not alone.
