Purpose: Create a context that allows someone to be seen
How it works
Decide which partner will be sharing, which will be listening
Decide how you will apportion the time and whether there is time for a switch of roles. Allocating 30 minutes to per share may be a good starting point.
As the sharing partner...
Tell the story of how it came into being and how they made it
Show something you have made/created that is alive for you - e.g., it could be a website, a piece of text, a photograph or piece of art, an interior design, an experience, etc. anything!
As the listening partner...
Focus on your heart and listen for feelings your heart perceives in them
Don't change the subject. Don't say "that reminds me of..."
Share what you are noticing as you explore what they made, which could include forms, connections, a feeling/mood, an spirit/essence
Here are some questions that may support the experience:
What sparked you to make this?
Where did you begin?
How did you choose that tool?
What was it like when you were making it?
How was it to start? How did your experience change as you continued?
How long did it take?
Who else was involved? How?
Was there a part where you felt stuck? How did you deal with that?
Is there a part that feels incomplete to you?
What resources helped you?
What was behind the choice to do it that way?
