Hi ,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was so wonderful to see many of you join us for our service on UU Sunday.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some have asked for a video of my reflection on self-compassion (https://www.allisonriverssamson.com/blog/how-self-compassion-can-support-allyship) as a necessary element of allyship as a white person in a culture built on and perpetuating systemic racism.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So here you go! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We'll be continuing our Sunday services online at 10:30am Pacific. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Send a DM to me if you'd like the Zoom link to join in! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In solidarity for justice.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ https://www.allisonriverssamson.com/blog/how-self-compassion-can-support-allyship
How might self-compassion be a resource to do the essential work of anti-racism and being an ally?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join us on Zoom this Sunday at 10:30a PT for a non-churchy service with the Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Send me a DM for the link.
There's no doubt that it feels better to move our bodies and sweat it out than to spend too many hours being sedentary. What if you could also have fun while moving? That's one of my missions since I don't really love to exercise or to sweat, though I DO love the benefits I get from both. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We'll be starting a new series this week. Join me!
I've noticed a surprising feeling of grief about things going back to normal. I don't want to go back. Not entirely. Our system is deeply dysfunctional and there is so much to fix. How will we ever do it all? I don't know. Read more below.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On April 30, we did a thing, Olivia (our 13-year-old) and me. I've wanted to do this for a few years now. I finally got the least scared I've been about it, so it was time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And so, Olivia shaved my hair. It was such an empowering experience to share. Read more about my process below.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Know that you need to get more in your body? While we're sheltering in place, I'm offering online Nia classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10am (Pacific).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Note: If you’re currently unemployed due to the pandemic, or are working on the frontlines, please reply so that I may gift a class to you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With love, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💜 Allison⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ https://www.allisonriverssamson.com/blog/why-i-don-t-want-to-go-back-to-normal⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ https://www.allisonriverssamson.com/blog/why-i-shaved-my-hair⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ https://bit.ly/NiaAllison⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #selfcare #sustainability #takecareofyou #entreprenuerlife #consciousmom #consciousliving #consciouslifestyle #sustainableentrepreneur #sustainableentrepreneurs #sustainablebusiness #profitpeopleplanet #livesustainably #greenlife #greeenliving #greenlifestyle

Our new foster, Lola is having fun dunking for ice. This is just about the cutest thing you will ever see. She is such a sweetie and apparently would be great at bobbing for apples! 😃 #adoptdontshop #pitbullsareawesome
As of Friday the 10th, we are a foster family! This sweet girl is in heat and was tied to a pole with a note on her in Sacramento. =( She's part pit bull, part bulldog, and 100% sweetheart. She's stocky and adorable, so we think her name is La-la-la-la-Lo-la. 💜 We’ll have her for at least a month, with the option to adopt. She and Olivia are totally bonded already. Lola has claimed Olivia as her own and wants to know where she is at ALL times. If you're thinking of adding a fur baby to your family, this is a great time, since there aren't as many folx visiting shelters. #adoptdontshop
