Boundaries are about finding that balance between connection and protection. (Rebecca Wong)
Biography: Rebecca Wong
All of my life, I’ve been fascinated by what it means to be human together.
This has driven me deep into the study of art, film and storytelling, experiential learning, relationships, sexuality, the human reproductive life cycle, the transmission of intergenerational trauma, parenthood, attachment, loss and human behavior, and performance. And the same drive has guided me to deepen my professional studies into Relational Life and Sex Therapy. My experiential teaching style draws from a range of leadership experiences over the past decades ranging from Wilderness Field Instructor to TMI Project Workshop Facilitator.
Rebecca Wong's spirit and her way of being are so audible in the way she speaks, breaths, takes long pauses to take in an interaction fully, and to let connection drive how she relates. I am thrilled you get to meet her here. I hope you will join me in listening to one of my favorite podcasts, up for an award. Find Rebecca's therapy work and her podcast at Connectfulness.
I admire Rebecca so much even though we have never seen each other in real life. I consider her a wise sage who has balanced challenging the status quo with grace and artistry few have matched, imho. While out wandering through the woods, I had a thought. "Maybe I should talk about why I am doing this podcast on the podcast." But I want to be "in discovery" and "in connection" - not rehearsed.
As I listen to my own words here, I can hear how internal I am. But what is more, you can hear how being 'in connection' as Rebecca does so well, allows you to go deeper. Rebecca captures the essence of my heart and I learned about myself and for that, I am so grateful to get to be in dialogue with her.
