In a world of discord and chaos, our greatest ally is our ability to be compassionately present with ourselves and those around us. Rooted in yogic philosophy, The Art of Holding Space workshop seeks to cultivate greater self awareness and empower intentional connections.
In a comfortable space, we will practice the art of holding space in gentle and inspiring ways. The workshop includes a short talk and discussion guided by Alicia Collier, yoga (asana) practice, and group/partner activities.
Our conversations will focus on such topics as:
What holding space really means for ourselves and others
Step-by-step guidance on “how” to hold space
Recognizing and overcoming blockages
How to let go of the outcome and practice healthy detachment
How to hold space in difficult contexts, when complex emotions and conflict may be present
What’s the opposite of holding space
