About the Event
How do we hold ourselves steady and support one another to hold steady, as we see humanity suffering and in crisis all around the world?
How can we contribute to the possibility of a brighter future for our loved ones, unless we unlearn old patterns of separation and learn to connect, communicate and relate from more natural and authentic aspects of our being? How can we nurture a better balance of masculine and feminine, active and receptive relating and listening, both within and between ourselves? Some of the skills that can support us as we explore such questions incude: Slowing down and allowing time to sense what’s here ~ An important aspect of deep relating is that it happens in groups small enough to allow each person plenty of time to sense into what is here and what, if anything, they wish to speak to and be witnessed and held in. Tuning into our bodies and hearts, before speaking our minds ~ Perhaps this world has had enough now of ideology and opinion, which tend to polarise and separate us. What happens when we speak from the deeper truths of our hearts? (which may be very different from what our conditioned minds think they know!) Embodied knowing has a ring of truth that is unmistakable and can be surprising to our more familiar ‘thinking parts’. Deeper relating from the mycelial layer that connects us all ~ I have often experienced speaking from a place which seems deeper than my own separate body-mind and I’ve heard others speaking from this place too. I think of this as the mycelial layer, beneath the surface where our separate ‘fruiting’ bodies appear to be. From this deeper place can come profound wisdom that is resonant for several, if not all, members of the group. Discovery and emergent qualities ~ In groups that develop trust in relating authentically and deeply together, we can discover new collective themes, insights, inspiration, or solutions to a problem. These remind me of the emergent properties of living systems, in which ‘the whole is greater than the sum of the parts’. I'm offering small group spaces for belonging, without agenda, except to unlearn old patterning and practice new ways of being together, relating deeply and authentically with one another. I’m calling this simply ‘Being Together’.
In Being Together groups, I'll share skills and practices I've been apprenticing in, over the last few years, and hold space for participants to learn and practice deeper ways of sensing, sharing and relating with one another. I offer this profoundly nourishing and sustaining deep relating experience to a small group of people who feel drawn and willing to commit to a regular (fortnightly) group session. I’m not sure yet exactly when this will take place as it will depend on the availability of group members. So, I invite you to contact me if this appeals to you. And once I have heard from six people, I’ll be in touch to find the best time to meet. I’ll request a modest exchange for my time in coordinating and hosting these groups and sharing my skills. I’m inviting a ‘pay as you feel’ contribution, in the region of £15-£20 per two hour session, or £90-£120 for a six session journey, held over 12 weeks. If you feel strongly drawn to this and can’t afford the minimum contribution, please get in touch anyway and let’s explore other possible exchanges.
