The Power of Pressing Pause: Realignment for Space Holders

Updated: Jun 8

In our fast-paced lives, it's easy to overlook the importance of pausing to take care of ourselves, especially for those who hold space for others.

Whether you're a teacher, healer, or simply a compassionate listener, your role in supporting others is invaluable. But amidst the giving and guiding, it's crucial to recognise when it's time to press pause and realign ourselves.

The Role of Holders of Space

As holders of space, we serve as beacons of support and understanding for those in need. We create safe havens where vulnerability is welcomed, and pain is met with empathy. It's a role filled with compassion and purpose, but it can also be emotionally and energetically taxing.

The Need for Realignment

Just as a car needs fuel to keep running smoothly, we need to replenish our emotional and spiritual reserves to continue supporting others effectively. Realignment involves taking intentional breaks to recharge and reconnect with ourselves. It's about prioritising our own well-being so we can continue to be present for others.

The Power of Pressing Pause

Pressing pause is not a sign of weakness; it's an act of self-care and self-awareness. It's about recognising when we need to step back from the constant flow of giving and refocus on our own needs. By taking time to pause, we create space for introspection, reflection, and renewal.

Our Space Holders retreat offers a sanctuary for those who dedicate themselves to supporting others. 

Practices for Realignment during the Space Holders retreat

we will be focusing on:

  • Guided Meditations: Ground yourself in the present moment and cultivate inner peace.

  • Qigong: Gentle movement, meditation, and breathwork to balance the body's energy, promoting relaxation and well-being.

  • Nature Walks: Immerse yourself in the tranquillity of nature to rejuvenate your spirit.

  • Creative Expression: Tap into your creativity as a form of self-expression and exploration.

  • Receive Support: Seek guidance and encouragement from mentors and fellow space holders.

  • Encouraging Self-Care: Prioritise activities that nurture your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

  • Respecting Boundaries: Learn to set healthy boundaries and honour your limits.

  • Let Yourself Be Held: Allow yourself to receive support and care from others when needed.

  • Expressing Gratitude: Reflect on the impact you have on others and express gratitude for your own journey.

As holders of space, we have a profound impact on the lives of those we support. But to continue serving others effectively, we must first take care of ourselves. 

By attending our retreat, you'll have the opportunity to realign and recharge, ensuring you can continue to thrive in your invaluable role.

Let's honour the silent strength of those who hold space for others and prioritise our own well-being along the way.
