NNI Dialogue Berlin 8 December

News

“Four power women came to dive deeply into Dialogue on the topic of trust. While the topic remained quite open, there clearly was one specific and important question in the air: What does it mean to trust myself and others in relationships? We experienced the struggle between following and celebrating our impulses while respecting and maintaining healthy boundaries. We also discovered a fair amount of anger underneath control, including fear to express anger and shame after having expressed it. (Is that a female habit?) Finally, the courageous release of the heated energy (anger) brought clarity and created a deeper level of mutual respect and appreciation! We learned that trust is dependent on truthful expression of thoughts and feelings, even if that is uncomfortable or creates momentary conflict. Fear was also a wonderful teacher. As it got our attention it morphed quickly into freedom and showed us that there is “more than one way”. Thank you to the brave women who came and co-created a space of truth, vulnerability, love and… TRUST.”

NNI Diversity Dialogue in October

News
0

NNI Diversity Dialogue (https://tt-tt.co.za/blog/) in October was a focused on the topic of Hope. The facilitators Kay and Vera took the group on a journey through feeling trapped into freedom.

“During our October Diversity Dialogue with the topic of “Finding Hope”, two strong voices emerged – the “trapped” and the “free”.

At one point the trapped voice explained “It feels like we tell them our struggle and they bombard us with this hope thing. They say, here is a wall, climb it and everything will be okay. We come from a background where no-one climbed the wall. Hope and motivation itself are a leg-up we did not have.”

Later, the free voice said, “At some point, I have to ask, how can I help you with the skills I have learnt coming from my background? I take the time to sit down and try to help you. How do I show you that I am trying to empower you and not belittle you? I am trying to pass on skills down a chain.”

During this dialogue, there was movement towards each other and a greater understanding of each other’s point of view. We left with the will to apply what we had learnt into our contexts, trying to pass more hope on to others in love.”

At NNI we know that dialogue is a way to claim back our power, and work through our difficulties to find our way back to hope, and through it, take action to transform our country.
