We Refuse to Lose our TTN Connections!

(Posted April 1, 2020)

It’s been a challenging time for all of us to find ways to stay connected with family, friends and the community. Members who regularly participate in TTN activities are accustomed to connecting in person. But self-quarantines and social distancing isn’t stopping our members from maintaining those TTN connections that have become such an important part of our lives.

For example, we’ve heard from members who have begun to meet virtually. Peer Groups, SIGs and informal social get-togethers are happening throughout the Philadelphia Chapter and we wanted to share some of their experiences.

  • We had a full house with 100% of our group together for the first time in many months and everyone was very happy to have the opportunity to "see" each other.
  • We used Zoom and all agreed that the virtual format worked very well.
  • Not everyone is experienced with virtual meeting technology, but they were willing to learn and happy that they now are familiar with a tool they can use for other reasons.
  • Our Peer Group decided that we would all benefit from more frequent meetings for the foreseeable future.
  • We ended our meeting with a 10-minute mediation session led by a member who is an experienced yoga instructor.
  • Since getting together for a movie is no longer an option, a SIG leader suggested the group stay connected by sharing their movie recommendations and reviews.
How are you staying connected with the TTN community?  Do you have some experiences or creative ideas to share with your fellow TTN members? We’d love to hear from you. Forward your thoughts to TTNPhiladelphia@gmail.com.
