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
Download the corresponding conversation with Mark Fairfield (episode 20) titled “Relational Culture & Undoing Individualism” to learn more about about the central role of connection in our lives. We learn about relational culture, factors for resilience, his work supporting caregivers during the AIDS crisis, how bullying is a euphemism, and failure.
