How we feel when we convene with others is just as important as what we do to intentionally cultivate the container.
Whether we intend for it to or not, music speaks to our souls in a way that few other mediums can. Before opening your next container, consider this practice…
Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths.
Bring to your awareness how you want to feel as you hold the container.
Write down the first feeling that comes to your mind.
Enter that feeling into the search bar of your favorite music streaming service.
Without judgment, listen to the first song that you see. Close your eyes and visualize yourself feeling that way during the convening.
After the song is over, take one final deep breath and open your eyes.
If you haven’t already, create a way for the participants within the convening to request songs to be played during the convening.
