As we know most people are blissfully unaware of the true components of holding space…and that is bringing up myriad issues. It’s time for us to get our communities ready as there will be more people coming forth having awakenings and needing support.

This is a main dharma training/activation work – to help get our communities trained up safely.

*Some of the information below is part of the 2022 Multidimensional Spaceholding Training*

A lot of people hold events, ceremonies and activities and hear the term ‘space-holding’ but very few know what It really entails.   Even more than ever before it is evident that we are in an important time where authentic and safe practice is imperative.    As more and more people go into deep processes it is vital that people take responsibility to engage with and train in Space-holding if they wish to demonstrate integrity and mindfulness in workshops, ceremonies and practitioner settings.   It’s also crucial that we ‘check ourselves’ and in these times where inequality is endemic to many settings it vital that we tune in to WHY we want to hold space and indeed what spaces those may be.

During this introduction exploration of key themes we will exploring space-holding from different vantage points – in group work, breathwork, dyads, ceremonies and workshop formats.  You will be invited to come into awareness of interpersonal, ceremonial and transpersonal aspects of space-holding – with reference to good practice, safeguarding, ethics, shamanism, energy medicine, psychotherapy and talking therapies, breathwork, ceremony, tantra and natural law.

In this course we will look at the foundations of Spaceholding. This is a course for senior level students so the teachings are for this level students. The course will be delivered over a series of immersions, supervisions and events with practitioners who already have some experience of space-holding.
