Resilient Spaceholding Self-Study

Resilient Spaceholding with Sophia Mindus and Ceri Buckmaster

Do you want to learn some Communication skills that support spaceholding (based on NVC) and Somatic practices to strengthen your resilience?

 

Do you need support for collaboration to hold projects together, especially when it’s tough? 

Would you love to have the courage to transparently acknowledge your facilitation mistakes and be generous with yourself when you do?

Do you need accompaniment so you can approach  tension and conflict as part of life and important feedback rather than a complete disaster?

Do you want to learn how to not take things personally? 

This is for you if you are already holding space in some form (facilitator, volunteer, event organiser).

Even if you already know some NVC this might support you as we offer reflections on our experiences of holding space with trauma-informed, power aware approaches.

Curriculum

We offer 4 themed sharings and reflections on the topics of:

01 Motivations and Strengths in holding space
02 Challenges and shadows in holding space
03 Triggers/challenges with participants
04 Conflict in Collaboration

Moving through Conflict Self-Study

Transformative Conflict Self-Study

Are you facing or witnessing a conflict at work, with a friend or in your family? 

Are you avoiding facing someone or getting increasingly triggered by things? 

Are there challenging patterns and habits that have accumulated over time? 

Do you want to unpack what has happened and find ways to move forward?

This Self-Study might be especially useful if you are ready to tackle a conflict or as preparation for a conflict process that I might support you with. In this Self-Study you will unpack what has happened with trauma-informed and power-aware NVC approaches. Who knows! You might not even need mediation if you do this Self Study!
