Join us in our last listening space of 2020 to be heard and share stories about how this extraordinary year has touched, changed and moved us.
This has been a turbulent year that has changed our lives and our world. We have experienced constant change and witnessed historic shifts in society; from the Covid pandemic to mass uprisings and growing movements for racial justice to the political shifts in the US elections and beyond.
These times have also offered opportunities for coming together in new ways, to reassess priorities, to support each other, and make space for new perspectives. We’ve witnessed some incredible acts of kindness, care and community, and a deep sense of gratitude for things we may have taken for granted.
Amongst all of this, we’d like to offer a space to step back and ask: How have we been changed by 2020? This space will offer an opportunity to gather in the last month of the year, to make space for our different experiences to be heard. Join us to bear witness to the diversity of experiences: the challenges, the joys & everything in between.
This listening space will be co-hosted by The Heart Movement and Network of Wellbeing.
A Listening Space is sometimes referred to as ‘Brave Space’. Listening to others’ difficulties and joys and/or sharing our own may touch on our vulnerabilities. This can be very supportive and healing, and it can also be challenging. We invite you to share only what feels ok to share – for you and others in the group – and to not to push yourself too far emotionally. If you are holding very heavy issues or trauma we encourage you to make contact with dedicated mental health support.
It’s important to know that a Listening Space is not therapy and the facilitators are not acting as therapists in holding the space.
By reading this statement, you confirm you understand your own responsibility for your mental and emotional health when joining us.
