Community Workshop with Dr. Hoy

August 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Meaningful “Touches” When Life Gets Tough

Perhaps the most enduring lesson from the global pandemic is the importance of physical presence in health crises, losses, and other difficult experiences. Too often, however, we are either intimidated to be present with people in pain or simply too busy to notice their needs. In this fast-paced workshop, we’ll discover together nuts-and-bolts ways to be present with people when life turns south. Specifically, we’ll discover answers to questions like these…

  • Why is it so hard to take the initiative with people?
  • Isn’t there a chance I’m invading their privacy by coming around uninvited?
  • How can I help after the immediate crisis has passed? Hint: the need is long-term, well after others quit showing up!
  • What can we do beyond the “first touch” and the obligatory response to a text?
  • How can I be present—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—for others without burning myself out?
