Come on a journey out of the darkness and into the light, as I share my story of coming to terms with physical, sexual and emotional abuse. Using my TEDxWomenBuffalo talk, "From Fear to Forgiveness to Forward," as a framework, I will guide us through the process of stepping out of victimhood and into the land of self-compassion, co-creativity and choice. Our capacity for choice lies in the space between emotion and action. You will collectively explore what lies in the space between, and how to tap into what is available there as we ask ourselves, "In this moment, what best serves my life and the lives of those around me?" You will:
• Recognize the amazing co-creative potential of the human spirit, a potential that lies in our capacity to be at choice in each moment of our lives.
• Learn to inhabit “the space between,” a place to access our capacity for choice.
• Experience the power of self-compassion to heal shame and to give the strength to make life-affirming choices, even in the face of our own vulnerability.
