Michael Massey joins us for
another open discussion on the impact of the coronavirus. This time

- The more able we are to surface
the deep fears, the better able we are to respond in ways that
aren't driven by panic or anxiety.
- Embracing growth and beauty

Helping someone in despair doesn't mean joining them in
- Additional suffering to do with
- Opportunity to allow
uncertainty move us beyond fear of the unknown, and how this
relates to the illusion of control.
