Relational culture 1: Bonding PRACTICE

This module explores the basic intentional practice of establishing a caring community to unveil and acknowledge our relational support systems in order to widen our experiential understanding of their influence in shaping the context and culture of our collaboration within our team.

We learn practices for bonding and empathic communication that allow us to feel whole and connected, and to foster a safe and trusting community in the midst of a complex and painful world. Through Storytelling and Somatics practice we learn to distribute the support of a caring community for all, and we come to embody stories of connection in our lives, our bodies and our relationships.

This training will prepare participants to teach and facilitate basic Storytelling and
Resonance practice as a first step to spread relational culture within social justice communities.
