Bouncing Back - Discussion on Overcoming Adversity


6/6 collaborative event with kizuna collective- 6月6日英会話ディスカッションサロン

Bouncing Back – Discussion on Overcoming Adversity Group Meditation

A short group meditation & cozy discussion salon where we'll chat about the topic of ‘bouncing back’ – personal experiences of overcoming setbacks and discovering new opportunities in adversity.

Whether it’s coping with loss or finding strength in difficult times, this is a space to share stories from our past (and present!) and support each other.

​🔍 ​​Basic Details 
​When? Thursday June 6th, 19:00-20:30
Where? Ikenoue Studio
Who? Anyone is welcome!
Cost? Free, and donations are appreciated :)
Language? English

How it works: we do a few short rounds of chatting in different pairs/small groups, on question prompts that we’ve prepared (although you’re welcome to freely share about anything on this topic!), and then end with some whole-group sharing. As part of our gathering, bilingual yoga instructor Meera Sensei will lead us in a short meditation to help center our minds and bodies. 

Bring your thoughts, your experiences, and let's have a meaningful conversation!

Important disclaimer: while we will endeavor to create a safe & brave space for vulnerable sharing & connecting, this is not intended to be group therapy nor a substitute for professional mental health support. If you are working through serious issues, we encourage you to seek help from a licensed professional.
