The Art of Brokering Reconciliation

This episode explores the art of this ceremonial necessity of Reconciliation – and how it is possible only if it is mutual, but that we can lead with the invitation.

The Second episode of a four-part series on ending cycles, and the ceremonies of closure and processing we need to observe to allow ourselves to fully move forward.

Reconciliation is not about trading forgiveness, it is about Understanding. It’s about acknowledging our past actions and working through the consequences they have had on our relationships. It requires courage to recognize our own failings and willingness to improve upon them. It is not an act performed in solitude, but rather, a willing dance between two, stepping in rhythm with one another.

We never get taught the art of reconciliation. It is an art, and its canvas and easel are an acknowledgement of the human experience of the other, an acceptance of the necessary relationship between boundaries and healing, and of the appreciation of relative perspective.
