In order to tell our stories, we need to trust that people will be still and bear witness to us, acknowledge and accept what we share. Likewise, we must be present with each other, with an empathy that honors our different life experiences. CB will share about the spiritual practice of bearing witness, and trusting others to bear witness to us, with a particular focus on gender.
