Dr. Becca Bland who founded Stand Alone, in the UK, did so to help support individuals who are living with estrangement and in addition, help educate institutions of higher learning do the same. www.beccabland.com
Special Guest Karen C.L. Anderson, Author and Coach, will walk us through an exercise that will be powerful and transformative.
Having walked the path of estrangement from my family of origin for nearly two decades, I have found that estrangement is far too often a subject that goes underground and is unrelatable but one which requires deep re-organizing, deep healing, ongoing re-identification and becoming.
I am compelled to cultivate a safe space to ask others to lay the burdens down of abandonment, betrayal, and begin to reclaim and name the self-honoring that the work takes to live in the world without those who live and have lived with us or those we have chosen to live without.
This is an opportunity to speak about forgiveness. To speak about reclamation of self. To speak about loss. To speak about reclamation of self.
Most importantly, to not turn away. To turn toward.
I am here to reimagine ways to find new language of inclusion and healing around the experience of estrangement that many people walk or have walked.
