Who Are the Survivors?

In COVID times, as we acknowledge our shared mortality every time we draw a mask up over our face…

As we hold beloveds in our hearts as they go through quarantine or hospitalization…

as we mourn those lost…

WE ARE ALL SURVIVORS.

If you stand for your own worth and the worth of all you hold sacred against all odds…

If you plumb the depths of your soul to find reasons to keep going each day…

If you hold the line and the light of humanity and justice for the sake of all beings and the Planet…

YOU ARE A SURVIVOR.

In these days it can be a struggle to remain sane, conscious, and alive…to avoid numbing out and tuning out into psychological and physical addictions….to avoid surrendering to non-existence.

To continue resisting, to continue affirming the worth of our voices and lives and values, to continue affirming the value of Life itself, is to survive

And to survive is a victory.

Every day we succeed, we find a new tool, a new practice, new wisdom to add to our story.

Michael Meade wrote: “Something deep in the human soul awakens as things fall apart. Something in the soul knows that everything in this world can become lost. And something in the soul knows how to survive periods of devastation, disorientation and loss.”

On this site, we gather to share the tools, the practices, the wisdom that keep us alive. That “something in your soul” is recognized and welcomed and honored here.

This site is dedicated to sharing the stories and the resources and the practices we all use to survive….and affirming each of us in the struggle, however it takes shape in our lives.

I invite you to join us in sharing your story here….

In the coming months, Survivors’ Haven will open its doors as a true community on the Mighty Network platform. Till then, to connect with one another in online community, please join the Facebook group for this site.
