About this Webinar

Holding Space One-on-One — Live Webinar Offering: October 6, 2023

The practice of “holding space 1 on 1” involves skills and practices that connect with what oneself and the other is experiencing such as deep listening, presence, connection, curiosity, and reflection.

This 90-minute workshop will introduce you to some of the core concepts in the fifth module of the foundations program. We’ll look at what it means to hold space 1 on 1, different resources and tools that might be useful in coaching, and practices to accompany someone who is stuck in unhealthy patterns. We’ll discuss some of the skills and awareness that are integral in learning to hold space 1 on 1.

A colleague of mine told me that she went to one of Heather’s workshops and that it was one of the best/most powerful workshops she’d ever been to. This person isn’t easily impressed, so of course I was intrigued and went looking for whatever this “Holding space”-thing was. I found Heather’s website, read a blog post, and another, and another and I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to do more than just reading about it/. (…) It seemed to be very much what I was looking for, especially since I’d just realized I was burning out and was in a liminal space that I very much wanted to escape from. Ironically, in my attempts to find solutions, I found the concept of holding space which helped me to stay/be in my own liminal space.
