“BEGIN AGAIN …” How do we want to live as we emerge into the new normal?
Lecture by Tony Bates
The past eighteen months have challenged each of us in different ways. Lives were disrupted, isolation and loss were endured by many, and livelihoods threatened. We found ourselves immersed in a crisis that revealed our vulnerabilities and made us aware of creative resources in our lives. Times of crisis can leave us uniquely poised to change and grow as human beings. What have we learned over the past eighteen months that we want to hold onto? What do we want to let go? This talk will explore how we can harness the learnings of Covid and live in a more authentic way.
