“The more we trust, the farther we are able to venture.” ― Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
Trust is a key no matter what door we are in front of in life. Trust is a practice that is deeply cultivated. A few months ago, I co-created an Empathy Improv workshop with John Gebratateose. I went to him with a seed baby idea. It was fully fleshed out fledgling. I sat down with what I wanted to see. Yes, he said. We can do this. Then he started riffing on improv theory and teaching and the exercises that he could tie to trust, power, and empathy. How’d you do that?, I asked him after it had all come together beautifully. We spent less than three hours together before we taught the workshop. Like coaching, when it comes to improv, I trust myself and I trust who I’m playing with. I can trust life. I’ve never felt so much excitement for something that I had NO idea how it would turn out. He met me with trust and so I put together a curriculum. The participants were shocked that we had never taught this before or worked together. The more we trust, the farther we can go. Trust yourself. When we trust, we turn curious. We’re more likely to explore and to co-create solutions.
To trusting yourself and your co-creators,
These Soulful Sunday blogs go out weekly on Sundays to be used as a place to step back from the hustle and bustle and explore what your soul might be saying to you. Some folks use these as journal prompts and let loose amidst pages. Some folks bring them to the kitchen table and jam over coffee. Do you, boo.
