Mapping values, we engage in discerning what we stand for. A process of reflecting on our heartfelt values supports us in becoming what we want to be. Making and renewing commitments to what we care about is an ongoing, important key to unlocking capacities for living on purpose. As we unwind embodied trauma, and learn and co-create new ways of being, we can stop navigating the world with unconscious appeasements and entitlements, and rules that are imposed from outside us. Our actions, words, emotions, physical presence, our level of lovingness, and what we do alone and together can increasingly match what we want to embody, and what we dream of.
The practice of Soul Mapping emerged from studies with Wendy Baxter on Values-based Organizing and Kai Cheng Thom on Loving Justice. It builds on understandings shared in Science for Sexual Happiness.
