There is a longing in us for deep connection with others. To be truly heard without being judged, advised or fixed by the other. To just “be”, totally present to the one in front of you as they share, without advising or fixing, without playing the role of Guru, or the one who knows what to do, is a truly humbling experience and it is where we meet in true healing through love.
What is Soul Sharing? It is where we bring alive an ancient Tradition sometimes called “Talking Stick” or Heart Talks” where we sit together in a circle and bring here and now presence and openness as we engage with each other. A safe and supportive field is generated as you are invited to let your heart move you to share. A crystal heart is placed in the center of our circle. As you feel moved to speak, you pick up the heart, and this is a silent communication to the group that it is your turn to speak, and the others listen, without interrupting or offering advice. This is an opportunity to be truly seen and heard. As we listen deeply to others as they share, we aim to remain aware of our thoughts, emotions and body sensations. When each person is finished sharing, the heart is placed back in the center of the circle and we wait for the next person who feels moved to speak. We trust the emergence or “magic” of the field as it brings forward what is needed in service of the group.
Who is it for? For those wanting to experience and practice true listening, honesty, being present for another and compassion for self and others all without fixing or advising. These groups can deepen our spiritual growth, awareness and sense of connection with others. It is for those who would like to experience the loving field that connects us all and develop a community of like-minded people.
