March Conversations: Liminal Spaces

Once again, supporting Coaching at Work’s Climate Coaching Day, we invite members of Climate Coaching Alliance to become involved in a series of conversations – over a week rather than one day this year! We are envisioning a whole week of learning and sharing together as we explore the transitional spaces in between where we are now and where we are moving to – personally as citizens and professionally as coaches.

The pandemic has reset a lot of lives globally and continues with newer challenges as we enter 2022 too. Coaching, in all its forms, is being recognised as an essential element in the transformational process. The recent global climatic changes too have surprised many of us. Everyone is feeling uncertain.

In such times, it is important to accept the liminal, transitional, in-between, spaces wholeheartedly. We do not know specifically what the future holds but the excitement of new possibilities in greatest in these spaces. There is no time better than now to speak about how we might move forward with confidence and orientate ourselves when in transition. What other ways of ‘knowing’ may exist that are beyond the purely rational and analytical ways of thinking and finding silver bullet solutions? Traditional wisdoms and indigenous cultures point to embodied ways of knowing and rituals that create a safe and more comfortable spaces in turbulent times. These are often more creative processes, including art, poetry, dance, and protocols about how to be together in respectful conversation. These ways of being enable different ways of knowing what to do, to emerge.
