As we’re emerging from lockdown, we’ll be experiencing a newfound sense of connection to each other after a prolonged period of disconnection. How do we navigate this? How do we find ways to more authentically connect to each other in our workplaces and beyond?
In this episode, I share a Body-Mind Centering framework that helps us understand the importance of establishing safety and comfort before we can genuinely connect to and bond with each other. We have the opportunity create a new paradigm if we’re willing to do the work to truly show up and connect... 👯♀️
The meditation teacher Elissa mentions is Thom Knoles.
This is an article from Body-Mind Centering teachers at the Babies Project that describes the Safety-Comfort-Bonding-Curiosity model I describe (they’ve added Orientation as a stage).
This Psychology Today article speaks to the 1940’s experiment and the importance of human touch.
The colleagues I reference who do diversity, equity, and inclusion work are: Kellie Wagner, founder of Collective DEI (listen to her on this podcast here), and Christina Blacken, founder of The New Quo (listen to her on this podcast here).
This blog talks about the phrase from the Bhagavad Gita, “Establish in being, perform action.”
