The concept of Collective Efficacy posits that together we can make meaningful change in our community, whether or not we agree on everything. Working together, anything is possible. Our 2023 Ministry Newsletter series will feature this concept front and center.
What we have collectively experienced in our international sangat mirrors the model of what occurs when an individual undergoes the disruption and dysregulation of a traumatic event. To address this, in the four issues of the newsletter we will share with our readers the progressive arc of the resolution of trauma.
For our first issue of the new year, we are exploring tools for stabilization of oneself following our community trauma that began in 2020.
Our authors for this issue were asked to respond to the following questions:
What tools have you drawn on that have helped you remain calm and centered during these times of turbulence? Do you have additional tools that other Ministers may find helpful to bring themselves into a space of balance and peace each day?
