Wondering why a person or an organization isn't on social media is a reasonable question; we humans are, after-all, social beings.
Add to that the fact that, as an organization, we want to share and spread this important idea. So what's up with this seemingly paradoxical decision? Here are three interconnected ideas that weave together to answer the question.
1: Good Girl Programming
As I imagine is true for many humans, the programming I learned as a child included glitchy and misguided rules for life. My good girl conditioning meant that more often than not, I over-ruled my heart's whispers and made choices based on 'shoulds'. For years I carried those program glitches around like a weighted vest that I didn't know I could remove.
It took a lot of work to even notice I was wearing a weighted vest. But now that I see it, I have developed a greater ability to notice & honor what I want or need. Right now, what feels like the right place to prioritize is to focus on serving our community through the annual Summit & Masterclass.
I can remember the jolt of joy when my friends and I first joined Facebook & IG. The magic of being able to share day-to-day moments.
But I noticed that even though we could technically connect, my felt sense was not one of heart-to-heart connection. So, I shifted away from social media and I got social in the ways that felt more aligned to my own nature; like connecting via our zoom group calls, the Summits & Masterclasses, and email.
3: The Ripple of Remothering
The self-care, self-healing path of remothering is a small but growing movement. Each and every one of us in the reMothering community traveled our own unique journey to arrive here. And, we each bring with us our own preferences for how we like to communicate. I am hopeful that there's room in this world for an important idea to thrive, even without a FB,IG, Twitter, Pinterest, or TikTok social media account.
We believe in the power of community and trust in the unfolding of this important idea.
