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.
In community, all members must recognize their value and worth because we transform and move together based on our shared values, experiences & knowledge. Gatherings anchor shared visions, teach spiritual connection, provides an outlet, and supports transformation.
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, consequently altering the shape of our communal body. As a Hilot Binabaylan practitioner, it is part of my journey and holistic practice to heal my communal bodies.
