Embodied facilitation

Our internal and external landscapes are irrevocably relational. My growing understanding of embodiment is being in close relationship with what's existing in our internal and external landscapes while recognising that both of these landscapes are formed by and informed by the horizontal (everything that is taking place now: place, environment, relationships, the local, the global, current events, and more) as well as the vertical (all that we carry from the past and all that we carry into the future: ancestral lines, histories, possible futures, and more).

To be intimate with internal and external landscapes as they are is to be intimate with ourselves as ecological beings. A staying close to self that is ecological.

As an embodied facilitator, I understand my role as embodying as best I can the deep intimacy, the always insatiable curiosity, I hold with my internal and external landscapes. That I hold with myself as an ecological being. If I can hold this intimacy and curiosity, then maybe each of us can become more intimate with our own internal and external landscapes. Together, we can then explore what's happening in the social field, meaning the field that arises when we are gathered that’s beyond the obvious gaze; Through that discovery, we can become more closer to ourselves at the same time that we become closer to what’s happening in the social field.

Through this exploration and we attention, we find something fascinating and alive: relationality, and all the ways we are relational.

 

THROUGH EMBODIED FACILITATION, WE CAN BECOME CLOSER TO OURSELVES AND THE SOCIAL FIELD.

 

 

Exploring our internal and external landscapes and how these landscapes feed, affect, and strengthen the social field.
