heal emotionally and socially  –     integrated back into the community

 

provide activists healing and growth  return to the community  –  citizens –   neighbors  –  usually there are issues related to functioning that affect being accepted

 

 

 

I have forwarded my response to the first critical issue of listening and being present honoring the person and seeing him or her as equal  a person of worth who is sacred.

Matt broke up the room into small groups more than 1  which is good to think about and speak to how to promote healing  I WOULD say to create an individual decision as to what you are after aims and objectives that are established by the person is a starting place  giving a person space and being still present to listen to the person fully as much as possible seeing through the person’s eyes and awakening a sense that this person is sacred welcomed a person who we welcome as equal and not limited by anything

 

now Matt is getting feedback on key points from each cluster
