Holding Space: Guest Blog with Dia for Yin and Justice

r the newsletter, please connect to this blog with this intro:


Co-Teacher Dia Penning of Commonweal and the Equity Collective  collaborates with a number of folks regularly. She uses a series of agreements to support the work and transformation. In the following blog she outlines these agreements indicating that we all have work to do. Internal work. External work. Collective work. 


As we take time to examine our relationship to violence and honesty, there are ways that we can be intentional about how we interact with one another. These agreements shape the time that she spends with students, clients and in workshops. They have become a calling card for how she interacts with folks, professionally and personally. They will also serve as a foundation for the upcoming workshop Yin and Social Justice.
