February Speaker:
"Dancing in the Rain" with Lou Radja 

There is no doubt about it, we are living in unprecedented and challenging times. We are still navigating the residual effects of a relentless and unforgiving global health pandemic that had turned the world and workplace landscape upside down. The great steps we took in response to the pandemic, from social distancing… to a remote/hybrid workforce, are not without side effects; isolation, stress, quiet quitting, health challenges, the great resignation, burnout, mental health issues… In addition to it, we are also feeling more and more divided and disconnected from one another, wars and human suffering inundating the news cycle, racial tsunamis across the globe….and economic uncertainty that has amplified and exacerbated the already fragile situation.

We are all feeling the effects of these challenges collectively and especially individually. In times like these, looking inward, building resilience and having empathy become critical for us not only to survive but thrive. Dancing in the Rain is a great opportunity for us to come together at our Mindful Mornings PDX gathering, unplug from the ‘matrix’ and unpack proven strategies to help us continue to grow, fill our own cup and be there for one another!
