We have all felt the effects of this tumultuous time of change, loss, and anxiety as well as experienced a chance to strengthen our resilience and resolve. Children and adults in every Montessori community need time, space, and some skilled support to help them process the suffering and loss they too have witnessed during the time of this horrific pandemic and political and social upheaval.
We have all lost something. At a minimum, we have lost our previous way of life. Some will have lost loved ones, some friends, or colleagues, and in some cases, a beloved member of the school community. How carefully and caringly we help people navigate the winding paths of grieving, healing and growing will determine how quickly students are able to re-engage in the prepared environment; teachers are able to be fully present in order to “follow the child,” and parents are to continue to support the school.
In this six-part course (three pre-records and three live online gatherings) we will have an opportunity to speak to our losses and explore the very foundations of our lives that have been shaken by the extraordinary events of a global pandemic as well as social and political turmoil. We will learn about the ways and means by which we can help ourselves and others rebuild the foundations of our lives by harnessing our own resilience and inner growth. We invite you to join us to give time and space for self-care, self-reflection, and the creation of a community of support within our varied schools.
