Facing The Fear

Dear Fellow Mothers,

 

These are difficult times for our nation. Many of us are trying to make sense of this horrific reality, going about our day with our hearts and minds elsewhere and hugging our children, just that little bit closer.

 

Many of us are feeling unsafe  and will be experiencing immediate, automatic and instinctive responses to fear, Fight, the feeling of wanting to stop what is going on, Flight, wanting to run away or hide or Flop, the feeling of being overwhelmed and being unable to manage. These are all normal responses and you may recognise them in yourself and in those friends and family around you. We feel little control, although we can control what we look at and allow ourselves to hear. 

Close to 180 of you joined us for our webinar ‘Facing The Fear’ on Monday night.

Based on your feedback, this is what we have heard and learnt;
• You felt validated after hearing that other Mothers are sharing the same concerns as you.
• You found learning about normal psychological responses then helped you understand your current emotions.
• You would have liked to have learnt some more practical tips for emotion regulation.

 

We listen, we care and we are here, look out for our free weekly 6 part mindfulness series. Sign up here to watch them live zia zoom or you can watch them on the videos below. 

 

Jewish women are resilient, our history proves this. We will get through this.
