Context and intention

This path-finding event is an invitation to lean into and process our own internal conflicts and shadow patterns as a starting point for sensing new possibilities for healing.

The cumulative impacts of different global events have highlighted profound differences in beliefs and values, differences that run so deep that they undermine shared agreements about how we live together in a shared world.

As leaders, change practitioners, citizens, activists we can all be blind-sided when strong emotions are evoked, or when there is a real or perceived threat to identity, health and life. And yet these very emotions can be the source of building a deeper understanding and compassion for ourselves and our own pathways for healing.

Fractal Healing for a Fractured World is a safe, non-judgemental listening space to listen deeply to our own experiences, share our challenges, held in a compassionate learning environment, integrating embodiment practice, movement, creativity, dialogue, storytelling.

We will explore our own conflict and shadow patterns in relation to working with profound difference, both conceptually (based on Shapiro’s work relating to patterns of vertigo, taboo, repetition compulsion, assault on the sacred, identity politics) and through embodiment.

We will then turn to the wisdom of self-healing systems in relation to these profound principles:

  • Healing as fractal (what gets healed in one part influences the whole)
  • Process-oriented, involving death and rebirth, cycles and seasons
  • Relational (between the parts and wholes)
  • Multi-modal, multi-pathway vs single solution
  • Enabling new patterns of coherence to emerge
