This photo shows my favorite moment from Bill Baren’s Big Shift Experience in San Jose. Even though I brought home a serious cold/flu from the event, which I’m still recovering from, I’ll always remember this moment with tears and gratitude.
A woman stepped up to the mic to share an Ah Ha she got from a partner exercise. Bill invited her onstage. She acknowledged her male exercise partner for the respectful, loving and compassionate energy he brought to her that made her feel safe enough to work with him.
She brought him up onstage with her to hug and thank him, and she shared that she had been abused by many men for much of her young life, including her father.
Then, this happened.
Men began to climb onstage from all over the room.
These beautiful men encircled the woman in an ever-expanding hug of conscious, loving, healing male energy. Many of them said, “We’re sorry!” – apologizing for the unconscious, destructive behavior of other men they didn’t even know.
This is true partnership in action.
I feel very blessed to have witnessed it, and I thank those men from the bottom of my heart for their conscious leadership and the healing they created for all of us in the room that day.
They gave me so much hope for the future. It IS possible. It CAN happen. It IS happening.
True partnership between men and women, and healing for our planet.
