What better time than when we are all shaken by the events in the world, to arrive more deeply into intimacy with ourselves and each other?
During this workshop we will do some edgework together, as we gently touch on individual and collective trauma fields in our selves, our relationships and communities. We learn to share new vocabulary as we explore life as an unfolding conversation between ‘belonging’ and ‘becoming, shaped by our evolutionary purpose, our motivation, but also encircled by the ‘Dark Lake of Collective Trauma’ as Thomas Hübl describes it. Rather than continuing to fit ourselves into a culture that has too little space for our love and care, we look into possibilities to transform our societies from the inside out.
This workshop is for you, if want to:
- Gain a deeper understanding of individual and collective trauma
- Assemble a toolkit of practices to resource yourself when touching on trauma
- Bring more consciousness to ‘belonging’ and ‘becoming’ in your life
- Understand how collective trauma might be shaping your community
- Be part of an global group of practitioners who actively practice qualities of presence, trauma sensitivity and witnessing for each other
This workshop will cover:
- Transparent communication and co-regulation
- The concepts of individual, collective and transgenerational trauma
- Trauma recognition and trauma resourcing
- The concept of Global Social Witnessing
- Recordings of the live workshop session and access to all materials used, plus background materials on GEN and Ecovillages
- Free access to 5 interviews from the GEN Online Summit
This course offers you the chance for extended live interactions with your facilitator, guest speakers, and other learners. These calls will be recorded and available to you afterwards, but if possible for you and in your timezone, we encourage you to join the live events.
