Participants will be introduced to the Active-Ally Model: Awareness, Action, Integration; and engage an exercise to learn about and embody the Five Guiding Principles: Honesty, Grace, Vulnerability, Witness, Commitment.
What is the Active-Ally Model?
The Active-Ally Model responds to the question, how do you want to show up? In this moment, in this conversation, in this life. It is about transforming behavior and learning how to move through all the emotions and barriers that come from the process of change. It offers a different lens through which to do life. It asks us to live in the honesty that is not about locating truth. To, more often, exist in the space between. This lens requires sitting in the unknowing, in the discomfort of not understanding, the fear of being witnessed; it asks us to reject our understandings of right or wrong and to acknowledge and love ourselves in ways many of us have never experienced. To love others in ways many of us think we are not capable. This model asks us to hold grace for ourselves and others and to risk intimacy and embarrassment, in the pursuit of transformation and systemic change.
