Spiritual Resources in Anxious Times
1. Connect your breath with your being. Pay attention to the most needed thing that makes you alive-your breath. Breathe in, breathe out. Do so for 1 minute, or 20 minutes.
2. Take a spiritual assessment. What do you go to for hope? Where are you feeling most vulnerable? Write those things down using pen and paper, if possible, and let the paper hold them.
3. Journal. If you pray, use the journal to pray and invite your sense of the divine into your writing. If you don't pray, write about your anxieties and what brings you life. In either circumstance, rely on your personal history and story to reach for the things that have grounded you in the past.
Whether you are grieving the loss of a loved one, or grieving your life on campus, and especially under the traumatic shifts with COVID-19 responses, we are offering weekly meetings (and videos forthcoming) to address ways to cope and understanding ways to process what you are feeling.
