We are over six months into the  COVID-19 pandemic and many of us are experiencing emotional, as well as physical fatigue from the prolonged crisis. Many feel they have “hit a COVID wall.” How can we better understand the emotions we experience as uncertainty continues? Sherry Kelly will discuss the transformative power of giving ourselves permission to feel. She will help us better understand and process emotions we may be denying, burying, or ignoring as these turbulent times continue.
