Welcome to
Big Self School

There is a global crisis underfoot and it's upending life as usual for all of us.

Stress, anxiety, isolation, and loneliness - marked by moments of self-reflection and candid life analysis - require all of us to use a different set of skills.

There are a million things vying for our attention - work, kids, relationships, and all the day-to-day stuff adds up, too. We're here to offer calm, comfort, and community through the current storm.

Even in the midst of a global pandemic, as well as heightened political division and racial injustice, we can take bold steps to take care of ourselves, strengthen our relationships, and lead others with purpose.
