A “Safe Space” or “Brave Space” is a community where different points on a journey of learning and growing are acknowledged. Community members engage in critical dialogue through conscious questioning and active listening. While all are expected to make their best effort to be respectful, there is an understanding that someone may say something that results in unintentional offense and/or hurt feelings for others. A primary assumption of safe space is that everyone speaks with the positive intent of seeking greater knowledge and understanding.
Participants in this workshop are asked to create a safe/brave space by following these guidelines so that people from different life experiences and ideas are encouraged to learn from one another and challenge themselves.
