We place a strong emphasis on relationships and how we treat each other and this extends to social media too.
Social media can be a great way to share ideas and experiences, however, it can also have a negative affect on our wellbeing, becoming a tool of physical isolation as much as virtual connection.
It can foster a culture of passive aggression, shaming, competitiveness, combative one-up-manship and other anti-social traits, the permissiveness of which is sadly trickling into face to face communication, some people think it is normal and acceptable to speak to and treat others in this way.
This can make our relationships more stressful; in which people talk at each other – rather than with, can be intrusive, self orientated and lack empathy; creating distress and barriers to intimacy. We hold boundaries against these ills which make us ill.
We’re unlikely to respond to requests, questions and comments via public SM, it’s best to get in touch privately or through email, better still come and join us for good company and conversation IRL.
Looking forward to meeting you in the woods sometime soon.
