|| Cheryl Strand facilitates open spaces of deep listening. Even when the next step is far from clear, the one thing we can immediately decide on is how to be - with ourselves, with each other, and with what's happening. Listening keeps us present and open to what's possible. In these times of uncertainty, rapid change and loss, when old, familiar approaches no longer seem to be working, we're encouraged to stop, be with what is, stay in our hearts, and hold space for something new. Listening beyond what we think we know we begin to sense into what can arise, grow, and be brought forth in the space we’re holding. Listening is a creative act. Cheryl has a BA (Hons) degree in Philosophy, is an accredited Time to Think Coach and Facilitator, has studied through the Presencing Institute’s U.Lab and is in training as a facilitator of The Work That Reconnects. She lives in Cape Town with her husband and teenage son, enjoys regular walks in nature and oil painting, and roots herself in a daily meditation practice.
