Warmly, Us was designed to create pauses in fast-paced city lives, allowing the nurturance of community, discovering the possibility of newness, with a break from routines. These monthly spaces were curated to center community and relationships anchored by themes relevant to the times.
In the aftermath of pandemic, we hoped to introduce an offline, experiential space that expanded to allow for reflective conversations, sharing space with another, bringing forth the stories of our everyday lives.
In ‘Warmly, Us’ group spaces, the facilitator offers reflective prompts to the group, bridges conversations, and opens space for new directions for the group to choose to converse on. The facilitator adopts a decentered stance, the group begins to lead conversations anchored in the theme for the session.
Note: Warmly, Us is not a support group gathering/group therapy, the facilitator gently may redirect conversations to the theme of the session. While the group holds space for sharing diverse experiences, the facilitator encourages the group to adopt a non-judgmental tone, approach replies with curiosity, being mindful of having to share space in a group. The need for individual mental health support/assistance may be discussed post-group session in interaction with the facilitator and the Team.
The sharing space holds space for conversations centering on the lived experiences of the participants. However, this is not a support group/group therapy offering. The individual may reach out to the facilitator and the Team present for individual mental health support.
The Listeners Collective is a group of multidisciplinary mental health and social justice professionals. The therapy services adopt tailored approaches firmly grounded in the socio-cultural context and environmental realities the individual inhabits.
Warmly, Us a sharing space expands to accommodate diverse lived experiences. This is not a support group gathering/group therapy. Individual concerns and life events are encouraged to be discussed to help the group understand and hold diverse perspectives, experiences and to develop a sense of solidarity only. No interventions will be delivered during the session for individual concerns.
The need for individual mental health support/assistance may be discussed post group session in interaction with the facilitator and the Team.
