Explore the ‘new normal’

Join Denise Krauss at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, July 21, for an exploration into our new normal: wearing masks, wiping down groceries, staying home, flattening the virus curve and so on.

What is it that we do not like about our new normal? Why, as human beings, are we resistant to our new normal? Why not accept it as our current normal and work with it? What would a new normal for the future look like?

Let’s talk about all of this and what we want to see as our future normal. Contact Denise at denise@extraordinaryyou.us for your Zoom invitation.
