Creating Powerful Containers:
How to strengthen your capacity to hold space

with Deborah Brodey

Founder of Radical Self Nourishment Programs and Find Your Voice Programs.. She is a Yoga Teacher, Vocal Sound Healer, Ceremonial Leader, Transformation Guide and a member of the Inner Arts Collective in Toronto, Canada.

Description

As facilitators of healing and transformation, one of the most essential skills across disciplines, is to be able to hold space for others. Yet we often see “giving fatigue” amongst practitioners. There may be a tendency as change makers to focus our attention more on the assisting of others than on nurturing ourselves and cultivating self – compassion for ourselves on an ongoing basis.

In this workshop we will experience a self- care model developed by Deborah Brodey called Radical Self Nourishment, which seeks to nourish change makers while they change the world. The premise is that Nourished Hearts change the world. We nourish our hearts through the practice and embodiment of 5 essential attitudes that come from yoga philosophy. Radical Self Nourishment teaches us how to create powerful containers for ourselves. Once we embody and are able to hold space for ourselves then we are able to be powerful in our capacity to hold space for others.
