Sarah: "Dyads have been one of my ultimate support strategies when I was going through crisis moments in my life (like my challenging divorce, whew!) I would notice a lot of tension, sadness or feeling generally disconnected (dissociating) or depressed.
Whenever I noticed that I was shutting down, I would reach out to the Dyad meditation community and there would usually be someone keen to explore a Dyad question with me.
By the end of each Dyad I would experience a heart-opening shift within myself. A lot of clarity emerged, presence to myself, and the courage to take the next step. And, although the other person was often a complete stranger, by the end of 40 minutes, I would be full of love and gratitude for being alive.
I often find it challenging to take the time for self-connection on my own, especially when there is something painful going on. The Dyad structure offered space to welcome whatever was under the surface, without receiving unsolicited advice or having to explain anything. There was a sense of companionship and a relief to experience that I was not alone...
This was a complete game-changer!
And to top it off, by being present to them, I had simultaneously contributed to my Dyad partner's wellbeing. Dyads have opened up the possibility of feeling truly at home within myself, centered, connected to my own needs while engaging with other human beings. That's pretty big for people-pleaser me!"
