Welcome to this month’s newsletter!
Whilst we are all seemingly moving out of lockdowns and restrictions, it’s an important time to remember to check in on each other, reach out to others when you need to talk and take some steps to look after yourself! This is a priority at Jeder, for all our members, and we host weekly zoom catch ups and bi-monthly Culture Calls like the example you will see in this newsletter from the session hosted by member Freya Pearson on sleep hygiene.
This month we have also been involved in developing and hosting 2 international Unconferences; one for Asset-based Community Development practitioners and the other for Person-Centred Practices thought leaders! More information and outputs from these incredible sessions will be available to share over the next couple of months as the teams upload and transcribe recordings and sort the resources and tools!
As we head towards the end of the year and the sun is shining more brightly in the sky, remember to take a moment to check on your neighbours, ring a friend, take a nap, read a book and prepare for a summer of less restrictions and more community connection! Whichever order you do those in, please be mindful of each other’s reactions to connecting and interacting; we are all living in this strange time together but are also in very individual contexts!
Remember to lead with kindness and compassion, for yourself, your friends and family, your neighbours and your world!
Yours in Community,
