Is Hope then intented as a form of ACCEPTANCE ?
Maria Sirois - MASS USA
46:38
Hope is the only emotion that is triggered by suffering - it is always present when we are in upheaval or upset or sorrow - this is from the work of Dan Tomasulo (Columbia University) - I find the fascinating.
Sally Beth Shore
46:50
Hope is a declaration-- a decision to find it.
Jackie Stavros
47:22
Beautiful … HOPE puts you in a connect mode with others :-)

Hope is the discovery of what can be while recognizing what is. changing the lens of the past!! while recognizing my own strengths while walking in the past

From our group, #6-This effects people on a level basis. No hierarchy, and brings people together in a much different way. This creates respect to others on an even playing field. No bells and whistles. This is fundamental. Be nice, accept others, this is pure and basic.
Mary Kiley

Was great to see everyone in our group!!

DALE
01:13:33
I had an opportunity to met with persons from Greece, India and US... quite amazing .. and intense.. perspective is signiicant
Liz Clover UK Bristol
01:13:48
For me Appreciative Resilience has two levels - firstly in my home life, using my strengths to build resilience in my family. Secondly in my work - offering some light at the end of a tunnel to an organisation that is going through significant hard times, thinking about how they can focus on their strengths and AI to rebuild when the time is right
Rhonda
01:14:04
Forgiveness as 'steely' and strong is a powerful concept.
Mikki Lane, Vermont, She/Her/Hers
01:14:23
o Being selective of the future and the world will be better when this is over... This is a breaking point, we will be in a better place when this is over… focus on structure to the day, meditation, exercising., walking dog, connecting with family…Meals on wheels. Next Door App – platform to connect w/ neighbors. Body scans in morning, bring true and honest to self.-Getting real. Respect length of time that change needs to happen. This will help next gen. Change is cyclical and takes time to transition through.
Beth Jenkins Smith
01:14:24
From Group #8: practice gratitude; remind self we are part of bigger solution; schedule family and work time; host virtual coffee breaks; virtual happy hour
DALE
01:14:26
appreciative resilience, from the personal to the corporate world.. we are in this together.
Molly D
01:14:36
Hope and Despair are both happening. And forgiveness takes strength.
Larry Baxter
01:14:42
good chat on well being and what we have already been through.
Deborah Maher
01:14:48
I think we are creating a new world. We are creating a new sense of appreciation for being together and for the most important simple things. I want to hang on to the creation of the new despite moments of despair.
Molly D
01:14:49
Forgiveness may not equal justice
Jan Somers Belgium
01:15:00
Awareness we are all the co-creators of the new world helps to focus on your and others' strengths.
Alex Arnold, Montpelier VT
01:15:12
#17 acknowledging that fundamental transitions in society takes time and that our world will be a better one after it
Deborah Maher
01:15:32
We are recognizing that we are one planet and your future is literally in my hands.
margiestern
01:15:33
Following the basics of great yoga practice, running or walking with our dog, eating well and creatively - I sign every email now with “supporting you in Self Care First”
Lauren Van Ham
01:15:42
Observation: hearing from others adds complexity to the larger picture -- what began as feeling hope can begin to feel like despair if the picture becomes more overwhelming. AND, inquiring as a group affirms that community is powerful and can support the overall transformation. Question: where does grief fit? Within despair maybe?
anne radford
01:15:45
Thinking of Forgiveness as a time for opening up mens I want to go again to Joan’s poem. I’ve thought of Forgiveness as a time to close down
Rhonda
01:15:48
An opportunity to recognize and celebrate new ways to be together. Hang on to the positive learnings after this is over.
Sallie--Asheville
01:16:24
From group 10: taking care of ourselves so that we can be helpful and caring for our communities. falling back on our strengths and experiences from the past. Knowing that we can make it through. appreciating the gorgeous spring weather and the clear air. Talking to friends abut hope. Trusting in the universe that this will have a positive new world.
Howard B. Esbin PhD Vancouver
01:17:11
Amen
DALE
01:17:29
the world will change, and hope may help us create the collective consciousness of hope
Jackie Stavros
01:17:38

sue sue@bethepeace.ca
01:20:04
i came in late. and while i echo all these hopeful comments about how the world is changed; that our world IS being indellibly changed-- i also suspect there's a high possibility this is just another blip in the way all emergencies are-- that we come together during and a bit after, and then we go back to sleep. back to our default mechanisms... and especially when the national leadership in places like US are so deeply unconscious-- this is my despair. and all the more reason for intense focus on the learnings and possibilities afoot. from all of us who are awakening!
Mikki Lane, Vermont, She/Her/Hers
01:20:09
It is the simple things in life that keep us going!
heide castro
01:20:21
I'm sorry, but I need to leave now ... I attended your lecture in Nice / 2019 and bought the book Resiliencia. Great theme for these difficult times.
Jessica

Sally Beth Shore
01:21:12
"Hope is a battery" love it
Gary Hubbell
01:21:14
...still feeling that it is important to remain present in THIS moment...not what will come later, what if....etc. A practice of being present
Maria Sirois - MASS USA
01:21:16
Soften our gaze - to see as Monet saw
Gertraud Wegst
01:21:20
#2 Live is not a given - forgiveness is a way of looking if you well never see someone again what do you need to get complete with whom? Practical support for people supports us as well. And there is a feeling of spring emerging from inside - hope for the new emerging in the world.
Molly D
01:22:11

Sally Beth Shore
01:23:10
I think we need to be careful about the way in which we speak about a changed world afterward-- I too am very hopeful for this, but I also hear many many unappreciative and blaming conversations as well, and to my mind this doesn't forward the world we want to get to.
Philia Issari
01:23:10
