Let’s shake up this Zoom format a bit, shall we? We’ve been on here for nearly a year (what?) and let’s face it, we all have cabin fever, so let’s try something a little different with this platform that binds us all together. Introducing: Zoom Room Roulette. Join us all in the main Zoom, and then you will be randomly assigned to a “break out room” where you will be lead through a 15-minute activity that you can do from home. Each breakout room will be hosted by a different artist, writer, dancer, or mindfulness instructor. You may find yourself in guided meditation, dancing, drawing, or even getting a little color therapy. No materials required except an open mind and a sense of adventure. Dress casual. Pets welcome.
