Health & Wellness  |  January 26, 2021

Together We! Thrive A Facebook Live Event - Self - Compassion in the Face of Disaster.

The pandemic has taken us on a roller coaster of emotions from fear, anxiety, sadness, anger, and isolation to even senses of hopefulness, inspiration, and connectedness. Recognizing the impact of these challenges on our mental and emotional well-being, CLC-Cappella is participating in a live video series called “Together We Thrive” to help us all in these challenging times. Videos will be released on Facebook bi-monthly on Tuesdays, and started January 26. See the full schedule here.

CLC and Cappella Living Solutions is partnering with Colorado Spirit team to offer the six-part support series. Together We Thrive will feature short video sessions and handouts offering professional and practical ways to support our whole well-being, so that we can strengthen our resilience and find healthy ways to cope with our stress. For the first session, “Self-Compassion in the Face of Disaster,” join Dr. Kristin Pyne to learn how to face your emotions with self-compassion, knowing that these emotional responses are normal responses to an abnormal time. Instead of toughing it out or criticizing yourself, self-compassion invites you to acknowledge the difficult time you are experiencing and calls you to comfort and care for yourself just as you would comfort and care for a close loved one. Click here to find the handout and worksheet activity associated with her session. Watch the full replay on Facebook now.

Dr. Kristin Pyne is the Senior Care Specialist on the Colorado Spirit team at Aurora Mental Health Center. Kristin graduated with her doctorate last Fall and has spent the majority of her academic and clinical career working with older adults. As the Senior Care Specialist, Kristin has the honor of connecting with, learning with, and helping older adults through normal reactions, such as stress, sadness, and grief, during this very abnormal time.

Join us Feb 9th for the next session in the series, Practicing Stress Management and Self Care

"When we moved to Holly Creek we thought about what is visible, such as interiors, apartment layout, dining areas, which are all very nice but after living here for a year we have discovered what is most important is the people that live here and employees, who are all so considerate and kind who are at the HEART of Holly Creek. They make Holly Creek a special place in which to live."
