Description: A Rochester Pachamama Event
Making it Personal: A Listening Circle to Help Heal the Historical Imbalance between Women and Men
It isn’t widely known in our general culture, but being deeply, empathically listened to as we tell something of our lives gives the speaker a space to see all around a matter, sort of like a 3D revelation, of something that has been only partially seen from one angle before —a revelation and gift for both speaker and listener. Men and women need to do more of this kind of listening together more ever these days.

The Circle process we will be using creates a confidentially safe, brave space for honest sharing and deep listening for both men and women.

Women need to hear how men have been affected by the imbalance of centuries and men need to hear the personal stories of women on this issue. Because this issue has affected all of us, the healing that can come from hearing each other’s stories on this issue can be profound. Although we will be explicitly focused around issues for men and women, all are welcome.

Please consider joining us for this Listening Circle to begin to heal the divide that creates so much misunderstanding and suffering in our personal development, our relationships, our institutions, and our culture. Let’s move together towards the biggest picture our hearts can hold for a beautiful future, one truly heard story at a time.

o Be ready to listen and speak with courage, openness, honesty, and compassion for one another.

o What is said in the circle stays in the circle.
