Today’s inquiry

Each week we’ll leave you with a powerful question. We encourage you to sit in inquiry with this question, write about it, discuss it with another community member on this path. Today, Nicole poses a 3-part question:

  • What does it look like for your community to be well?
  • What’s standing in the way of that?
  • What can you do as part of your wellness practice to dismantle those obstacles?
