Many of us have heard the expression to “hold the space” for someone, but until now, I haven’t come across much information on what holding the space actually looks like, especially when caring for a loved one who is transitioning into the last stages of life. Enter Manitoba-based teacher, writer, coach, retreat host, and facilitator, HEATHER PLETT.
When I read Heather’s writing, I realized that she was able to lovingly articulate key concepts about the gift of “holding space” gleaned through her own life experience, specifically, the passing of her mother.
During our time together, Heather will explore eight life lessons she has learned from the amazing people who have held the space for her. Thank you Heather for doing this beautiful work!
8 Tips from Heather Plett:
1. Giving people permission to trust their own intuition and wisdom.
2. Giving people only as much information as they can handle.
3. Not taking power away.
4. Keeping your own ego out of it.
5. Making people feel safe enough to fail.
6. Giving guidance and help with humility and thoughtfulness.
7. Creating a container for complex emotions, fear, trauma, etc.
8. Allowing people to make different decisions and have different experiences than you would.
