We often hear that people want or need a Safe Space in order to communicate clearly or to express themselves fully. We try as a community to keep our local venues as designated Safe Spaces. But what does it truly mean to create a Safe Space? How can we, regardless of which side of the slash we are on, help provide this to our partners and communities? How should we seek to use such a space when it is available? xiaoyi has modified her shamanistic class on the topic of creating safe spaces for rituals and will be sharing with some of the skills, tools and “hands-on” exercises that can help in fostering, maintaining and learning what sort of Safe Space you and your partners want and what type you can help create.
