We all know how serious the situation is everywhere in the world with the Coronavirus and how each of us is trying to do their best to keep a mental and physical state above the line. Perhaps there is a lesson in this for everyone in particular, and for us, as part of the community. Learning to keep calm, not to get angry with each other, being responsible for our actions and respecting each other's intimate space are more important than anything else at this very moment.


So, as we are taking this lesson for us, we would like to invite you as well to more introspection, more communication (via phone, e-mail, video) and more time with yourselves.

At this moment it’s the only way of having and maintaining healthy relationships, by taking the good from something unpleasant and unexpected.

Here are some recommendations from us while this situation:









︎LISTEN

more about emotions on this atlas of emotions and reflect on how to cultivate global compassion


︎WATCH
a short documentary on Aeon, about the school, imagined as a summer hill, by Alexander Neill, in the 60s, a school where children can be free and learn what they want to learn and play when they want to play and make their own rules of living, moreover, Neill argues that education in schools doesn’t mean only learning math or history, but also learning about yourself and your emotions. Whether it’s still a controversy, there are private schools that are still operating by his theory
