Re-learning how to reconnect

The word Connection has popped up more than normal this past week. In preparation for the third Say Hi to a Stranger movement this weekend, Kaare Long has talked in various interviews about the importance of connecting offline with strangers just with a simple “hello!” in a world where we are bombarded with online requests to “connect” on Facebook and LinkedIn (at least I am, on a daily basis!).

Our definition of Connection has always involved the divine, Holy Spirit – whatever you want to call it – in all things, and is one of the values we bring to our work. If we don’t feel connected to the work, we won’t be of service – which is one of our other core values.

We’re exciting to bring on a new client this week, and connection is again a crucial thread to the project.

I spent the past weekend exploring flowers and nature at Stanley Park and the Van Dusen Botanical Garden, which celebrated its 40th anniversary. I’ve always considered myself more of an urban creature, but I’ve realized the essential connection we have with nature and its important role in providing us with soul energy. I had no idea that both places in the city – which have been around much longer than I have – had an abundance of flowers. Lately, I’ve been itching to have a dip in the ocean for some reason. It’s probably a sign of some much needed cleansing.

In a few weeks, Social Venture Institute celebrates 20 years at Hollyhock, a place that is rooted – and created from – nature. It’s a place close to my heart that I’m excited to return to, when the time is right.

Here’s to your way of remembering connection.
