Thanks for sharing, Rachel. I’m really sitting with the vulnerability that is coming up for you as you consider moving forward to create more connection and processes to grow your community. It sounds like there’s part of this that is not from present time. When you describe your conversations with your friends and it is obvious you’re all in solidarity, it suggests that you’re dealing with something much older. Where do you feel this vulnerability in your body? What does it feel like? What shape is it? When was the first time you remember feeling this feeling? I’d invite you to explore it.
I’d love to hear more about “Calling the Circle” and your thoughts for what you’d do in your community, where you would start. I love this!
Thanks for sharing!
Wondering if anyone else is familiar with restorative justice or restorative circles?
