Thriving in Dystopia

Ep17: Letting Go and Separation for Self Care

August 31, 2020

New Season!  This season’s theme will be separation.  Separation means preparing apart, getting distance, releasing, and perhaps counter-intuitively deeper connection at times.  For the next 8 episodes, let’s come together to come apart.

The show starts with a fascinating update on the classroom situation, and Dave flying the U.S.S. Enterprise with his 4th graders.  The sub-theme of the week is letting go and psychological separation.  Bob delves into a personal crutch that has gotten him through the pandemic and how to be able to let go of crutches when the time comes.

Did Dave read The Power of Letting Go?  Only he knows.

Some solid apropos commentary on the sports walkout
