Rather than aspiring to create a space where everyone feels safe, I now aspire to create an environment where individuals are supported in being brave. To be brave means being vulnerable, being authentic, and speaking our truth even when we aren’t sure it is our truth or even when it might reveal our own oppressive socialization AND being open to others bravely sharing their experiences of us and holding us accountable so that we all may learn and grow.” — Keith Edwards
Daily Practice: As you create your local gatherings, or bring new people together; create a brave space. A space where our truths have room to breath and explore. Too often safety in our communities and in our world is used as an excuse to oppress, militarize and kill. Practice creating a brave space. It has better consequences and builds trust, respect and possibility.
