Self-Healing Communities Coach
“Becky Dale” is a process of becoming love and joy. (“You,” too? Maybe all of us?)
Some of the components of this process, so far, include: partnering in learning about individual and collective trauma to co-creating healing in communities; composting experience, ideas, and interactions into music; collaborating with other beings and places to make community-engaged theater; practicing coaching skills like asking powerful questions, listening deeply, being open to windows of opportunity, accompanying another, conscious relationship, acknowledgment, accountability, opening to emergence, and more; Learning about and working/practicing to un-do white supremacy and all forms of domination and exclusion; parenting and learning from children; biking and hiking and canoeing in the woods; building cross-species relationships (a dog, birds, mice, butterflies, bees, plants, and more); recognizing and repairing harm done, allowing and metabolizing pain and hurt and grief; lots of up and down; letting go and letting come; experimenting with new economic and system models to build equity; and, practicing mindfulness meditation. This process will likely continue to include many of these things.
What else may it include? The possibilities are endless.
