Holding Space - The Art of Helping

I am sure you have heard the words "holding space" but what does it mean? Holding space for someone is to be supportive and present, without judgment or opinion. It is something easier said than done. It means listening. Allowing the person to share their feelings and thoughts without fixing or the need to respond. It includes practicing empathy and compassion accepting someone's truths, no matter what they may be. Putting your needs and opinions aside, and allowing them to just be. And remember... it takes practice.
