20 Practice: Sharing Resonance with Mark Fairfield
In this practice, you’ll learn an exercise called “Sharing Resonance” from psychotherapist Mark Fairfield. It is a framework for building relational culture and dismantling individualism in our relationships and groups. This episode is more of a training and intro to how to share resonance, so you can listen on the go and learn the practice wherever you are… and then take it into relationship and practice it with one or more others. We especially recommend starting with groups of 3-5. Follow along with a useful handout about it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LujM-mwh3jtnt2_wPnlzUN7QhjX_L9zg/view?usp=sharing
