Catalyzing A Shift Consciousness

Dearest Friends of the Shift,

We hope that you all are staying as safe and as sane as possible through these difficult times. 

This pandemic has inevitably created extreme challenges for so many people… especially for those living with chronic illness, those working on the frontlines, and those whose livelihoods have been impacted… not to mention those who have contracted coronavirus. 

We send our love and our blessings to each and every one of you. And we thank you for the many ways that you’re attempting to be a positive contribution to this world.

Despite all the challenges, it’s also beautiful to see the outpouring of community support that’s happening around the globe, with people finding innovative ways to connect and support each other despite the shelter-at-home mandates and social distancing protocols. Check out this pictorial article for inspiring photos of connection.

And it’s touching to see how many leaders and teachers in the consciousness movement are making so much of their wisdom and offerings available at no cost. Please DO take advantage of the multiple free sessions offered each week via The Shift Network on our Facebook page. Next week’s highlights include:

  • A Noon Pacific Community call on Monday with 3 top leaders focusing on an integrative approach to your health: Dr. Emmett Miller, Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona, and Ryan Castle from the Chopra Research Library. (Click here to join the weekly video call, or connect by phone: +1.669.900.6833, Webinar ID: 516 624 728

  • 2:00pm Pacific healing sessions with HeatherAsh Amara’s Warrior Heart Practice (Monday), Robert Moss’ How Dreaming Can Get Us Through (Wednesday), and Deborah King’s One Global Heart: Energy Healing for Yourself & Our World (Friday)
  • A new 2:30pm Pacific segment for kids, families & the “young at heart” featuring a “Global Singing Circle” with Lindsey Wise (Monday 4/13), “Wee Yogis for Kids” with Jyoti Levy (Wednesday 4/15) and “Mothering through the Shutdown” with Devaa Haley Mitchell (Friday 4/17).

We hope you’ll enjoy this special edition of Catalyst, which consists purely of free pandemic-specific content from Shift faculty and allies to help you navigate this crisis and find some measure of comfort, peace, and yes, even joy. Please note that we will also be sprinkling helpful pandemic-related content into each of our “regular” Catalyst ezines as well.
