YMCA COMMUNITY CAFE – Grow Empathy with Emotional Awareness and Expression
Grow Empathy with Emotional Awareness and Expression:
YMCA Community Cafés bring together those who are 55+ to build health in spirit, mind, and body so that no one is stuck and alone but rather thriving during this pandemic season with greater purpose.
You can expect to experience a brief (15-20 minute) topical introduction with ideas to frame discussion and perhaps consider things in new ways. This will be followed by small group facilitated discussions — wherein you will have opportunity to share experiences and perspectives or simply listen to your peers as you feel comfortable. The way you participate is always up to you. Following the small group discussions, we will come back together for an empowering full group wrap up with relevant resource sharing and a look ahead to the next session.
Enriching Relationships while Social Distancing is a six-part Community Café series running on Tuesday afternoons from November 10th through December 15th. Each week we will focus on different tools and practices to deepen connections to those you live with, and your neighbors, your family and friends (near or far).
This week’s café is titled Grow Empathy with Emotional Awareness and Expression. This session we will explore our relationship with emotions and identify tools of emotional awareness and expression.
