Creating Space for Community

Creating Space for Community is a monthly gathering to explore concepts around inner/outer community building, belonging and thriving. These webinars are FREE to attend and are designed to support those using our Smartview Stories Facilitator Guide. During our time together, we will create a safe, playful environment to explore how we show up for the communities outside of us. These webinars emphasize Gendlin's action step; how is it we bring Focusing concepts into our daily living.

No Experience Necessary!

Come Create with Us!

Bring all of yourself to this gathering, not just the "shiny parts"!

Let's presume welcome and extend welcome.

Pause a bit here. By creating a space between judgments and reactions, we can listen to others and ourselves more fully.

Skills you can grow during our time together.

* learn to utilize the three Inner Companions from Smartview Stories to make valuable aspects of Gendlin's philosophy and our body/brain neuroscience easy to understand.

*learn to discern when you are living from a partial view and when you are holding space for the whole of your body's wisdom in this situation.

* our mind is 'sticky', it likes to hold on to patterns it knows from the past. We will become more efficient at recognizing these sticky strategies and gain insight into moving beyond them in this playful community environment. 

* the ability to pause and move into your body, into the present moment, or over to your right hemisphere to access a bigger picture and potentially do something new here. Each time we do this rewires our brain to for a sense of working together around future similar situations. 

* via improvisational role play during our time together, practice resilience in rolling with what is here now.

* improve your ability to interact with others with kindness and clarity that everyone and everything is safe and with a sense of we're in this together.

* develop more ways to support yourself and those around you in processing challenging interactions. 

* become aware of embodiment techniques that you can incorporate into your daily life to encourage holding on to new patterns that are emerging for you. 

* receive neuroscience related handouts to support you in practicing these concepts in your daily life.
