In the training group I attended this weekend, we discussed, enacted, acknowledged, and healed people’s deprivation.
Lest there be a deprivation of definition here, here’s a definition of deprivation:
The deprivation we addressed in the training group “Developing Resilient Group Leadership” was not of the material kind. It was the deprivation of emotional validation, physical contact, and unconditional love. I got to address some personal early deprivation by expressing my feelings and needs safely, by telling people I loved them, and by receiving love back.
Do you see deprivation in my most recent images?
I don’t want this post to have a deprivation of music, so here’s “Deprivation” by the Thofte/Thorsen Quintet:
If you don’t want there to be a deprivation of comments about this “Deprivation” post, please leave one below.
There is no deprivation of gratitude here, so thanks to all who help me create this daily blog, including YOU!
Happy new Presidents Day, Ann.
