Still so full and hope from Saturday I do not want to let go just yet
As I sat in a circle of diverse ages, experiences and genders I felt a sense of emerging community that warmed my spirit
I heard a call for fellowship from Isobel , and others valuing connections both via social media and in person.
It felt within the assembled throng there was a real sense of renewal,excitement, and holding hopefulness for the future.
An enthusiastic and informative presentation of comparative research by Catherine and Susan gave a real sense of Person Centredness still being at the core of the association - a sense of strong identity, and at the same time shifts of that expression - moving from where we centre ourselves in the core conditions to the expansiveness of relationship
Terry brought forward both the possibility of re-engaging and developing group facilitation skills within the association, and possibilities for Vienna. Visions of positive futures
Lisa delivered disclosures that brought non-normative gender. sexuality and relationship into awareness. Bringing into awareness both the intersectionality of indivdual identities and the human need to be recognised for who we are rather than what others would wish us to be.
Sue's section introduced the notion of writing as self therapy and valued creative process.
There was mention of purist and pluralism and possibility ... of getting organised and active.
Amidst it all I reconnected with folk from Strathclyde and other trainings, and encountered new people whose values resonated with my own and I want to ride the wave that was started
Wondering who else doesn't want to let it go?
