Poem: Holding Space
Updated: Sep 16, 2021
Holding space for another is one of the greatest privileges and gifts. It's a beautiful act of support and empowerment for the one being witnessed and held. Holding space requires maturity and humility. It requires deep presence and self awareness, so we don't project our shadows or stories onto the one we are holding space for. The act of holding space and being held creates deep connection based on safety, respect and true love. It's the most powerful way of moving through life's ups and downs. When we are being seen fully and from that place accepted and celebrated.
Is a courageous act
Of compassion and mindfulness
Simply being Connected
With the distress
Whatever is coming to the surface
And needs to be
