Be brave. This is powerful work that transforms and challenges people and systems. Creating safe and brave spaces for people to show up and be seen means both skill building around vulnerability, courage, shame, and empathy, and working to dismantle the systems that devalue and dehumanize people.
Serve the work. Protect the integrity of the research and protect the wellbeing of those we serve with the work. For all leaders, including facilitators and teachers, this means working within your scope and skill, and doing your work before you do the work with others.
Take good care. Love, grace, accountability, courage, vulnerability, empathy, shame resilience, and the power of story can change the world. As we put these into practice, we must take care of ourselves, each other, this community, and the people we serve.
