Holding Space

October 18, 2023

I’m Sonja.
Leadership Specialist and Creator of The Expansion Practice. Also a travel enthusiast, dog lover, fanatic for all the books (on all the subjects), and an advocate for intuition.

It can be hard to know what to do right now. Difficult to even connect with how we’re feeling during times like these. If you’re struggling right now, please know you are not alone.

My husband, Glen, and I sat looking at the TV last night, watching another long day of unimaginable destruction, pain, loss, and suffering summed up in mere minutes as global leaders continue to justify and share what they believe are reasonable explanations.

Our hearts know there are none.

When we are in a place of trying to justify who is in more pain, whose reactions are more justified, and who deserves to live or die, we all lose.

I woke with a heavy heart again this morning trying to figure out how I can be of support to others right now. In some moments, I’m not even sure how I can be of support to myself, but one thing is clear: when in doubt, be of service to others.

This is why I’m opening my calendar for the next few weeks to offer Held Space for anyone seeking support, even if we have no idea what support looks like right now.

Held Space is a free and open invitation to join me one-on-one on Zoom for up to 30 minutes. It is to be witnessed, just as you are right now. To be held in your grief, your pain, your uncertainty, and fear. If there is something going well for you right now, but it hasn’t felt right to share your joy, allow me to celebrate that with you.

You do not need to justify or overthink what you need. If you feel the call to connect, I invite you to do just that. We need each other right now. Allow me to hold space for you.

If you’re struggling and need to be seen and heard, book a call.

If you need a pause, a mental health moment, or time out from your work, family, or day-to-day right now, book a call.

This is for you.

I invite my fellow practitioners who have the capacity to also consider offering the same opportunity. And if you don’t have capacity because you are already giving everything you have to support your clients, please know this space is also here for you. Be sure you are getting the support you need as well.

There is no agenda. No sales talk. Nothing other than what you need in the moment you show up.

Here’s what I can offer you:

💛 Being fully present to witness you, to listen, and to hold a safe, confidential, space for you.

💛 Gentle support for your nervous system to move towards regulation during this highly dysregulating time.

💛 Resources to connect you to more robust mental health or professional support should the need arise.

You don’t need to know what to say or what you need. Just know this space is available for you.

You can book your call here.

Please feel free to share this with anyone else you think may need support right now.

Thank you 🙏🏻
