Me, Myself, and I: Cultivating a Relationship with Ourselves
Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains
October 17, 2021

with Dawn Bateman, Janet Bullock, Stu Matthews and Jordan Thomas-Rose,

How does living through a pandemic influence our relationship with ourselves. And how does that work in the context of living in relationship or not. A tapestry of members and friends reflect on this most intimate of journeys.
