Normally, Holding Space,  Llumination Quest,private Death Cafe,or other sessions can be scheduled and designed especially for you and your loved ones from February 15 – November 15. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all in person programs  are suspended. However, we are providing the Zoom Pandemic Parlor as well as phone consultations relative to our mission and in support of your well-being during this extremely challenging global event. The number to call is 928-525-2910. Office hours are from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Meanwhile, please follow the guidelines provided by your medical professionals and the CDC. Here are some recommendations:

  • cough or sneeze into flexed elbow or disposable tissue
  • practice frequent hand-washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • do not touch your face (especially eyes, nose, mouth) with unclean hands
  • practice social distancing by staying 6 feet apart while in conversation
  • don’t shake hands; do the elbow bump
  • work from home if possible; shelter in place if that order has been given by your local leaders
  • disinfect frequently touched surfaces (door handles, light switches, toilet handle, cell phone, computer, etc.)
  • stay home/self isolate if you are feeling ill; consult your physician if symptoms get worse or you have trouble breathing
  • get some fresh air by walking, biking, or running if you can do that at safe distance from others
  • practice meditation, mindfulness, yoga, tai chi, or simple stretching
  • communicate with loved ones, but use social media and internet resources with some restraint that allows for inner reflection and other activities that are not about the virus
  • give yourself permission to feel and process the grief associated with your situation and that of the world; seek others to communicate with about the grief
  • find humor. . . memes, netflix, movies, youtubes, songs, it is out there; a little laughter can be healing
  • if/when you feel out of control, take a breath; name 5 people you care about. After you name them, go back and say something you love about that person. Do this out loud. It can change your state; reduce the out of control feelings
  • isolation can be very difficult – consult a counselor, sponsor, chaplain, or medical professional if you are slipping into unmanageable depression or anxiety
  • take time to be present to the moment, be with family, play games or puzzles, read, watch videos, learn something new, create something artful, journal, sing
  • be well
