It’s been a while since I last posted, but the work goes on.
Tim and I continue our exploration together and the group also meets every 4-6 weeks. It is an honor to explore and develop something new, exciting and promising together with such committed, honest and wise people.
The Collective Children
There have been happy developments with the Collective Children. It seems they are helping each other (who would expect that of all things?) and are feeling better.
There is still, however, much work to do. It’s a good opportunity to remind us all that any care and attention given these collective voices is valuable.
The Teenagers – A New Collective Appears
A few weeks ago we met a new collective self – The Teenagers. They are not in good shape, to say the least – which, somehow, isn’t surprising. If you feel it is right for you to find ways of letting them know you care – it can help.
Here is some of what they told us:
“We don’t know if we are children or adults… Disgusting feeling… And they expect us to do things while we feel so bad. They expect us to grow and study and wake up in the morning and function. We can’t function at all. We can’t… We are going through some horrible transformation and nobody understands that. It’s as if we are turning into a different species or something. Maybe if we could talk about it we would understand more… We’re dying here. Like a big stone in the world. Maybe part of the depression in the world is connected with us.”
Our group has met quite regularly over the past months. It is a source of fascinating revelations. There is a feeling that what we do promotes personal and collective healing. This is a good opportunity to thank the participants again.
If you are interested in participating, let us know.
We plan to begin training people to facilitate groups doing this work. This can be especially suitable for Voice Dialogue facilitators but in special cases others who feel called to the work may join too.
If you’re interested, please contact us.
