Holding Space: Basically you put down the wall, take down the guard, and listen. That’s it. Listening is one of the hardest things to learn. We’re constantly waiting to get in the next word; to have the last word; we’re thinking about what we’re going to say WHILE the other person is talking. So holding space and non-violent communication is allowing the person you’re talking with to have the room, to speak freely and know that they’re being listened to. As the person holding space your perspective might be challenged. So how can you respond, instead of react? How can you stay grounded in my truth, in what you believe in, and come from a place of understanding?
Shift Your Perspective: How can you be open in the way you look at life, a situation or conversation? When we shift the way we think, it doesn't mean we give up what we believe in. Instead we allow some new light to be shed on our pre-existing ideas.
Stand In Your Truth: Communicating from a place of honesty and upholding your core values. How can you share your experience while staying both grounded and receptive? You’re not trying to prove your truth, you’re just communicating from that place. Maybe this new perspective enhances your truth and makes it stronger, or it makes more room for other truths.
The Driver: I love the idea about being the driver and the passenger. I think it’s something we can all relate to because at one time or another, most of us have been a driver and most of us have been a passenger. As the driver there is a lot of responsibility and attention. Being the driver of a conversation, situation or stance in life doesn't mean being aggressive, controlling or dominating. It means there is an opportunity to come from a place of inspiration, empowerment and motivation.
The Passenger: You can't control what you can't control. Being the passenger of a conversation, situation or place in life, doesn't mean being passive or submissive. Instead you come from a place of understanding, trust, attention and compassion while staying grounded in what you believe in.
We're All On Our Way Home: What does 'On Our Way Home' mean? It means we're all trying to reach that place in our lives that feels whole, balanced, centered, honest and true. It's the place where we feel most aligned, full of joy, and like ourselves.
