The Pause: Slow, Soft and Spacious
Sometimes, time moves faster than we can integrate. We end up doing so much, we often forget why we are working so hard. Our bodies hold tension from all our struggles of being steeped in a world that constantly gives us messages that we are not safe. Often, we are squeezed into narrowly defined versions of what is possible and don’t have the spaciousness to stretch into who and how we can be.
We invite you to join us in …The Pause… to collectively hold a space that is slow, soft, and spacious. Explore with us these antidotes to a culture that is always seeking to produce more, faster. Let’s slow down to enjoy rest and integration. Co-regulate and find stillness together so we can soften what we are holding and melt into deeper relation with ourselves, each other and the earth.
Can we collectively create a space that encourages us to simultaneously mobilize while being still? Connect while resting? Create while integrating? Ground while strengthening? And dance towards prosilience*?
Let’s play in spaciousness with one another and with ourselves. What changes are possible, internally and collectively, from a place of grounded, regulated softness? Can we remember how delicious life is and truly enjoy the things we work so hard to create? Can we integrate these sacred moments into our blood and bones in order to move forward into our lives and communities deeply resourced? Perhaps, together we can access the potential for greater possibilities of ways to be, connect, liberate, heal, and feel the ripple effects impact our world.
*Prosilience – Where resilience refers to an object’s ability to recover its original form after impact Prosilience implies an actual growth and learning from that impact. It is based on the concept of antifragility and emphasises humans’ capacity to, under the right circumstance, bounce back stronger and wiser after being hurt.
