Contents

As a volunteer who regularly works with people, you have probably experienced how important it is to be present and at the same time focus your attention on the other person. What this workshop is all about is experiencing how you can stay with yourself and connect with others from relaxation. And for that we stay away from each other's content and focus our attention completely on the relationship and our presence: Relational Presence.

When someone tells you something, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish what is yours and what belongs to someone else. In this workshop the assignment is: listen and kindly set aside any judgment about what you hear. A little strange….maybe. Especially if your reflex is to give good advice and with which you sincerely believe to help someone. What we are working on is listening attentively and staying with yourself: a kind of mindfulness in the relationship. And that is surprisingly easy to learn.

 

We start with a short initial exercise, then we do one-on-one exercises to experience our presence in the here-and-now and our availability to the other. Then we go a step further and work in groups of three or four. You bring in something that you find important for yourself in your work as a volunteer. We conclude the workshop with a short evaluation, which we also conduct according to the Relational Presence methodology.

 

At the end of the workshop you have experienced that it gives space to express yourself without judgment about yourself and you have allowed the other person the space to express themselves without judgment about themselves. It is safe and space-saving not to comment on each other's content. You are able to evoke Relational Presence in yourself, so that you can listen to each other in a relaxed way with space for yourself and the other. Because if you adjust your behavior, the other usually also adapts to you.

Trainer

The workshop is provided by Caroline Peet. From her own company Reflexie she works as an independent coach and teacher. To perform this work, she took courses in NLP, Transactional Analysis and Speaking Circles / Relational Presence and she got the 1 st grade teacher Dutch jurisdiction. She uses Relational Presence in every working environment to make work easier for herself and others.
