COMMUNAUTAIRE

"Knowing information on one thing improves our knowledge of the other because measurement is an active process that alters the system being measured."

 

Making sense of how we relate to others is one of the five human dimensions that fundamentally shape life. By knowing ourselves and how we see our place in society, we get a better idea of how we want to navigate and manipulate our environment. This consequently alters the shape of our communal body. In a community, all members should recognize their purpose and/or role in it because members transform and move together based on shared values, experiences & knowledge.


Their gatherings anchor shared visions, teach spiritual connection, provides an outlet, and supports transformation. It is our duty to relate to the communities we find ourselves in and to be of service to each other as an act of self-care. 

 

ANNUAL SACRED SUNDAY ENTREPRENEURS

Sacred Sunday Entrepreneurs is a gathering of professionals & creatives which celebrates pakikipagkapwa and communal healing as guests are lead into discussion, unpacking topics relevant to current times. As a Hilot Binabaylan practitioner, it is part of my journey to also heal my communal bodies as part of my holistic practice. Gatherings typically include cleansing rituals, acknowledgements, intention setting, food, social & individual wound healing and sealing.
