Dear Sanctuary members,

another month gone, and though many of the restrictions due to Covid-19 are being lifted, I can’t yet see when we be able to get together in person while we have to keep to the 1.5m social distancing.

So once again, we are meeting on-line on Tuesday, June 9, from 5pm to 7pm Adelaide time (Adelaide, South Australia)

I hope that some connection with other Sanctuary members is better than none, even though we can’t hug or hold hands and actually see each other in person.

Our speaker next Tuesday will be Stephanie Mitchell from HUMANE Clinic.

She is a psychotherapist and co-director of the clinic. HUMANE Clinic’s website defines “Humane” as marked by tenderness, compassion and a disposition to kindly treat others. I like that. A good philosophy for life. HUMANE Clinic has values very similar to those spoken about in Family Connections and what we have often spoken about in our Sanctuary meetings:- listening without judgment, listening with compassion, listening without giving advice etc. The HUMANE clinic provides an alternative to diagnosis led approaches.

A couple of our members have heard Stephanie speak and have told me we will have a lively and interesting meeting.

I hope you can tune in.

All the best
