Among the many needs of this time, holding spaces—that is, spaces for processing, reflection, somatic awareness, and grounded re-commitment—feel particularly important.
With this need in mind, I’m continuing to hold lunchtime processing groups: “Processing the Pandemic with Heart-Head-Hands.”
Throughout the spring, these groups felt supportive for me—like I’d learn or remember or release something new with each session. So, this summer, I’m continuing to facilitate processing groups—to notice what’s shifting, to listen more carefully, and to re-commit with intention.
Each week we have a new question to frame the session, and we follow the same format: introductions, guided meditation, freewriting, and then conversation.
A schedule of questions appears with the registration page, and here are the questions in image form, each inviting reflection on making change:
These questions feel important when there’s such a need for remembering, reckoning with, and repairing under-acknowledged and continuing harms of settler colonialism, white supremacy, systemic racism, and structural violence.
Sometimes holding a question weaves it into daily life: highlighting what’s too often ignored, making long-held patterns intolerable, and growing the capacity to change. And summer 2020 is calling for change!
If you’d like to join a group, register here.
Registration is included with Patreon subscriptions, and there’s also an option to drop in for a single session.
If you know others who may be interested, please share with them. I connect with people mostly through word-of-mouth recommendations, so this is one of the best ways to support me in continuing to hold processing groups.
And reach out with questions or feedback anytime.
Toward striving toward justice—social, racial, and environmental justice.
Toward setting a pace for long-term commitment and long-haul staying power.
Toward feeling, thinking, and doing: that is, making the everyday work of living for justice fully embodied.
