We found this article in Spirituality and Health by self-confessed introvert, S. Rufus, to be really smart, fun, well written, insightful and resonant, reflecting thoughts we’ve had, too. And because we couldn’t figure out how to improve upon it, we’re just sharing it with you here.
So, what are you – introvert or extrovert? And how do these pointers strike you?
For loners, recluses, and other solitary types such as myself, sheltering-in-place feels natural and normal.
However scary other aspects of this pandemic might be, for us, this aspect isn't.
Do you have a recommended sequence of programs for trauma, related to life-threatening illness?
I’m not sure where to start. I relied on several of your guided imagery audio programs during my cancer treatment. I am now 2 years post-chemo and my scans are clear.
But shortly after I was diagnosed, I also became ill from life-threatening sepsis due to a perforated bowel, leading to multiple surgeries and weeks in the ICU on life support.
I was in the underground garage, walking up the ramp leading to the door of my building when a middle-aged man and woman opened the door to come out.
I backed down the ramp to give them ample room to pass me (read: 6 feet or better). The man stayed by the door while the woman continued to move towards me. I gestured her to allow me a wider berth, which she did with a nice smile.

This past week has been a crusher for everyone in our company, but a good kind of crusher.
We got to give help to the helpers – guided imagery for health care workers suffering with stress, exhaustion, grief, anger… for feeling insufficient to an overwhelming demand… worried to death about their own families… unable to fall asleep… for all of that.
That’s been a satisfying thing for all of us.
