We have the potential to grow and heal in relationships. We have spent much of the last year in isolation or in a different routine than we are used to. If we have been juggling multiple roles we may need additional support.
Life is a series of connections, disconnections, and reconnections.
Our beings are drawn to connection.
We are tribal people.
So much of we do is about being seen, valued, accepted and/or loved or avoiding relying on others
Shame cannot live in the light when we share with trusted people.
Our social engagement system which kicks in when our nervous system is regulated helps us to bond with others
It is possible to develop "power with" others rather than "power over" relationships
