Being Seen is a practice of holding yourself accountable. Accountable to your shadows, your secrets, the shame you are accustomed to. The stories that make up how you relate with others and how others see you. In order to see these stories, you need a safe space to hold you...so that you can dive in and practice being seen.
Why are we fearful of being seen?
Is it fear of judgement? Are we afraid of being seen as a weak? Not good enough?
Fear, anxiety, and shame are powerful teachers. They inform us when it’s time to slow down and pay attention to our path. Without them we’d forever function on autopilot.
When you can allow your own feelings to be your guide, you'll experience more creativity.
It’s really that simple.
We stagnate when we block off our feelings. When we live in a state of shame, anxiety or fear. We get paralyzed. Over patterned. Rigid. Stuck in our ways. And we lose the creative flow.
So how to get the creativity flowing?
This is going to sound so counter-intuitive. You can’t fight it. You can’t try to create harder. You can’t DO anything. In fact, you have to do less. And experience more. In short, you simply slow down and sit with all the feelings.
Allow in the overwhelm and the flood. Allow yourself to observe yourself. Your patterns. In seeing yourself, you'll also see deeper into others.
Observe your pattern. Observe your struggle. That act of observation will inform your path.
Ancient wisdom tells us that the way of least resistance often lies in the willingness to look inward.
In ourselves we see everything.
The #POBS mission; to nurture the nurturer.
In nurturing you we create more space for you to hold and nurture yourself, your family and the people in your community. In order for you to be able to really hold space for others, you need to hold space for yourself. And it helps to not have to do that alone.
And so, the Practice of Being Seen was created.
As you might imagine, the Practice of Being Seen isn’t just a theory or a collection of ideas. It’s a practice.
You’re invited to journey with us as, collectively, we explore, birth, hold what it mean to see and be seen.
