Many people feel that being vulnerable implies weakness, when it actually takes great strength and courage to let go of the layers of defense we build around our emotional state. We come up with so many creative ways to hide from others. The exchange of seeing others through accepting eyes, and being seen with all your faults and perfections, can be a challenge... but it can also open you up to deep connection, receptivity, resilience, genuine support of others, and a life that feels more rich and meaningful. Brene Brown's 2010 TedTalk on vulnerability is a beautiful exploration of this topic.
Connection is a skill, and we're all somewhere on the spectrum of skillfulness. In a supportive environment, we'll use mindfulness-based interactive exercises to practice authenticity and vulnerability, lovingness and acceptance, and we'll explore how connection happens not only through our words, but also our energy, our eyes and our movements.
This workshop is for you if:
You are aware that deeper connection with yourself and others is possible
You want to increase your lovingness and practice holding others with acceptance
You are curious about your own authenticity and ability to be vulnerable
You long to really "show up"
You want to explore new ways of being in the world
You already feel that you connect deeply, and want to spend an evening engaging with others in this way.
