Any of this sound familiar?
Dude: "I cleared my Saturday to do something fun with my lady; why is she hanging with her friend instead?"
Dudette: "He knows I always do yoga and lunch with Carrie on the weekends. Why is he pissed?"
Dude: "Why is my co-worker Lynette still talking at me? I need to be left alone for an hour to do my assignment!"
Dudette: "I thought Ken was going to help with my project today. Why isn't he listening?!?"
My space, your space, whose space takes priority?
It's all about holding space for something. But do you know what "holding space" actually means? Andre and I thought we knew. It's about making room in your schedule or life for a goal, mission, priority, intention. Right?
BUT, when we started talking about it, we discovered that we each might have a different understanding of what "holding space" actually LOOKS LIKE IN PRACTICE. And, whoa, we found that serious conflicts can occur when 2 people's version of holding space do not match up. As in, a man’s version of holding and honoring space may radically differ from a woman's perspective and priorities, which can be a source of big upset for both sides.
We invite you to get down and dirty with us in this topic as we figure it out together: Do men and women hold space differently? Or is this an individual dynamic, regardless of gender? What do each of us need in order to have the space we're holding be honored, respected, and supported? And, maybe most important, how can we hold space TOGETHER so that we're pulling in the same direction?
Please join us for the topic of "The Space of Possibility” at the 10th CO-ED QUEENS-n-HEROES SALON. Sunday July 27th, 5:30p-8:00p (4pm potluck), Sherman Oaks. Co-led by Andre Paradis and Fiona Nagle.

There are 3 minimum requirements for a man to attend the Co-Ed Salon:

b) He has done "Understanding Women" in some format (CD, DVD, live event)
c) He has a basic understanding of what is a Queen
Three times a year, PAX men and women gather together to dive deep on a cool topic about how the genders differ and how we can better relate. In the past, we’ve looked at masculine/feminine energy, cavewoman/caveman, and building the kingdom in partnership. The mutual dialogue, exploration, and revelations have been MIND-BLOWING and LIFE-ALTERING. Plus, we have a lot of fun and laughter with good food, good company, and great conversation. In this edition of the Queens-n-Heroes Salon, we’re going to start exploring the relationship between boundaries and space: boundaries as healthy limits, need for space vs need for connection, and holding space for something. This topic is SO JUICY that even if you think you know these distinctions, there is always something new to discover… Hope to see you there!
This event is co-led by PAX Mastery and Leadership graduates, Fiona Nagle and Andre Paradis.
