XR Reflect and Connect Circle

In the safe space, during our September Rebellion, an idea was born: how about opening a cyber safe space; we can’t rebel alone! At the base of our nature lies the connection we have with each other and the world around us. Being a rebel is asking a lot fromus Especially in these times of global crisis.

The idea found fertile ground; we need time and space to process all our experiences, Whether it is coming down after a big action, processing news of the state of the earth or navigating day to day life experiences. We are happy to be able to invite you to participate in the regular ‘Reflect and Connect’-sharing circle.

Rebellion can be intense: meeting new people, high energy, physical challenges, a lot at stake and dealing with uncertainty and change. It needs time and space to process all this experiences on a physical, mental and emotional level.

With this circle we intent to create a possibility to check in with ourselves and eachother. A possibility to share, meet and stay in contact with other rebels, all over the country, despite ever changing rules concerning COVID 19

We will start each circle with a guided mindfulness practice to ground and check in with ourselves. Then we’ll open up the space for rebels to share what is alive for them in their lives at the moment and concerning the rebellion. Let’s get together, share, breath, reflect and connect!

This is for any rebel that:

  • Could use a supportive space to reflect on their experiences within XR
  • Would like to get out of their head, into their body
  • Would love to reconnect with other rebels
  • Are in a need of a safe space to share their experiences and process emotions

We want to offer a space where every experience is welcome and honored, also if they are not ‘positive’or ‘fun’ or if they come with emotions. We’re here to support each other in our process, believing that taking responsibility for our personal and communal wellbeing is essential in regenerative culture and needed to be able to keep on standing firm in our rebellion.

The circle will be hosted in Dutch or English, depending on the participants
