Taking Our Place
In this workshop, we'll work with the mirror between the inner and outer worlds. I invite participants of any faith or none through song, stillness, movement, silence, sharing and listening, to seek and take their place - both in the world and in the throne of the heart, where our core sense of self, or spirit, dwells. As LGBTI / queer people we have been repeatedly told, and something in us may have come to believe, that we are marginal, and that we have to knock on the door to gain entry to faith, religion, even spirituality. On the contrary, I believe that we are the natural priests, shamans, philosophers and healers of our communities. In this workshop, we will what it might mean to take our place.
Razia Aziz, has worked as a trainer, facilitator and coach in the field of diversity, equality and inclusion for over 25 years. She has sought to understand human nature through this work - and also from the points of view of social & political activism, a love of nature, song poetry and creativity, mothering and partnering, healing and the constant current of the spiritual journey. Upon this many-splendoured path she has had the privilege to work with a very wide variety of people, and sensed the deep longing of people of all persuasions, in all walks of life be (re)united with their Truth, their Self, their God. Awareness of this longing in her and others inspires her work.
