“We don’t just have one authentic self to bring to all our relationships.
Instead, we have multiple selves and possibilities that different contexts and
relationships will evoke in us.”

Harriet Lerner

It’s been a long time traveling,
walking, persevering, and getting things done.
We get used to seeing the same person in the mirror,
day after day.
But who is the person we are looking at?
How often do we look,
really look through time and space,
and know ourselves, our many selves
that have held on and brought us here?

We can be authentic and yet changeable.
We can be true to ourselves,
wear many colors and hues,
employ different strategies, and
change our costumes so we can meet the moment
we find ourselves in.

The people we are with often provide the framework
for the person who shows up.
To be seen and accepted then
becomes a gift and a generous one at that.

Join me for this month’s gathering

“To Be Seen”

Thursday, July 7
07:00– 8:30 PM EST
via Zoom

Payment accepted via
Venmo @Yota-Schneider or PayPal.

Come as you are, and bring your dilemmas, questions, and challenges.
Prepare by choosing a quiet space with a comfortable chair, a pillow, or
a place to lie down.
Plan for quiet, uninterrupted time – about 90 minutes.
Make a cup of your favorite tea, have a glass of water, and your journal, drawing pad, and pencils nearby. Light a candle.

As always, you are also invited to join our meditation circle on
Mondays and Thursdays @ 09:00 AM EST.

The 40-minute session includes a short reading
based on the month’s topic and a 20-minute meditation followed by a short discussion.
Join in whenever you can.

I look forward to sharing space with you.
