Busy Bees! They know what to do! Some bumble, others dart, some are wasps and they don’t seem to mind each other or me. Must be nice to know exactly what to do. Makes me think about all the buzz in the air from us humans, only we are wondering what to do? How do we support those refugees? When will we reduce our destructive foot print? How do we make America Great again? Ummm, don’t freak out or anything, it’s just, I wanna say....I know what to do. Yup. Like these bees, on there way to making honey, the first step may seem indirect. We gotta come together. More than a march, we need momentum! And like these bees, we start locally, using what we all have, social currency. We need a mechanism, a system, kinda like these globe thistle and other flowers, to bring us together. I propose we take a cue from these bees and use what already exists. Let’s ignite a peer based volunteer driven prosocial macrolevel community and resiliency building movement by taking San Francisco State’s critical reflection practice and spreading it through coffee shops, and anywhere 5-10 can gather for an hour once a week. It’s a harm reduction practice, like a talking meditation. Five prompts, a socioemotional yoga, that builds deliberate thinking skills, broadens world views and generates a sense of belonging, resulting in a growth mindset. Otherwise known as team building. Let’s get busy shall we? Shucks, this experience is so fun, I bet we can build a giant swarm made up of tiny hives meeting everywhere! I wonder how many kinds of honey we can make? Who’s in?
