Connecting with others who share similar (or sometimes radically different) journeys has helped me to remove my colonial glasses and really start leaning into the mystery. I am more likely to ask questions rather than jumping to conclusions (“what if” or “what else” is often the tune in my head). The connections I made through Holding Space have changed the way I interact with others and myself for the better.
