For many of us, the pandemic has revealed our interdependence and desire for connection. In this community practice, we take time to cultivate our “Collective Resilience” and honor the dedication and service of educators as part of Teacher Appreciation Week. Mindfulness guide, April Frazier, also reads a compelling passage from Resmaa Menakem’s “My Grandmother’s Hands.”

The past year has had a profound impact on our lives. As we prepare to reopen our classrooms and emerge from quarantine, it marks another transition.

In this practice, we take a moment to acknowledge the flurry of changes and practice letting go.
