NRCDV eNewsletter: Connectedness (Spring 2017)

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

"Things happen for a reason. You are sure of it. You are sure of it because in your soul you know that we are all connected. Yes, we are individuals, responsible for our own judgments and in possession of our own free will, but nonetheless we are part of something larger. Some may call it the collective unconscious. Others may label it spirit or life force. But whatever your word of choice, you gain confidence from knowing that we are not isolated from one another or from the earth and the life on it. This feeling of Connectedness implies certain responsibilities. If we are all part of a larger picture, then we must not harm others because we will be harming ourselves. We must not exploit because we will be exploiting ourselves." -  Clifton StrengthsFinder, Gallup

Connectedness, the golden thread that ran through all of the presentations and discussions at ResilienceCon 2017. Connectedness, ever present at Encuentro Internacional de Multiplicadoras. Connectedness, providing a foundation for action and engagement. Connectedness, informing our prevention and awareness activities. Connectedness, at the core of our self-care and wellness.

Articles throughout this newsletter demonstrate the importance of connectedness to the work of NRCDV.
