The Art of Holding Space
Manage episode 343843851 series 2927303
Today, I’m thrilled to be joined by Heather Plett. Heather is known internationally as an expert in the art of holding space. What does it mean to become an expert in “holding space?” Well, as Heather reflects, “ In my case, it took a lot of grief and trauma and many years of fumbling…” and she says, “I think it’s true that many of us end up teaching what we most need to learn.”
I first met Heather through her online workshop, The Art of Holding Space, named after her book. Through her book and her workshops, Heather takes us through how to “hold and support ourselves” as we form a deep connection to ourselves and open ourselves to others on our journey of healing and growth. Heather is an international speaker, facilitator, and writer whose workshops and seminars span six continents. Her writing has appeared in Harvard Business Review among other publications, and she has been quoted in multiple books, and contributed to training curriculum for nurses, hospice care workers, yoga teachers, facilitators, and military chaplains. She lives in Winnipeg, Canada, with her three daughters, and she is just a beautiful soul.
