The need for #circleoftrust / #circleofinfluence / empathy is increasing by the ticking clock.
Holding a child in our arms , is like watching the bird fledge and fly .
We need to nestle, nurture and develop healthy minds who in turn become global citizens.
When #EdubridgeInternationalSchool invited me to give a 90 Min talk on #safeandunsafetouch .
I was particularly impressed by such engagement from the school to educate parents. ( #educatingparents)
Furthermore , touched by the response , we witnessed a room full of involved parents.
As parents , we have to continuously invest on our selves and thus , influence our upbringing.
As I drew the curtain that morning of 13th November, I spoke about safe space conversations , to be fully present while listening , regular community meetings to broaden our understanding, regular apple meet ups as family rituals, to be mindful , becoming a better listener, learning to interpret unspoken and spoken words , leading conversations Vs closed ones, visual words.
Over 450 participants attended my Talk on ” How to Bridge the gap between you and your parents” at #orangecityliteraturefestival was
Super engaging and fun moments with everlasting words that connected soul to soul.
Power of descriptive words to explain what you feel , shared loads of stories that made meaning to words like integrity , compassion, receptive listening and what does it mean by holding space.
Also my belief on the ” Visual words, circle meet ups, mindfulness, giving non judgemental safe space and well told story ” can bridge so many gaps .
All this through games and exercises for living learning experience.

“When you begin to talk in stories, your black-and-white words turn into color. Your drab requests turn into a mission. People find you to be more compelling. And once that happens, others will see that stories work, and they’ll start telling stories, too.” Annette Simmons, author & business consultant
