Transparent Communication

By Anna Steup

I would like to share my experience of transparent communication in groups.
The topic that interests my most at the moment is “burn-out”. I really see a lot of people (including me) who overload themselves in order to do important things. I see it in political contexts as in many others.

With consciousness and awareness I would like to spend some time in a group dedicating ourselves to our expectations towards ourselves and others.

For several years I went to reunions practicing ‘transparent communication’ where we learned how to be honest, to share another person’s story and the own. Now actively listening helps me in the trauma support group that we founded. I really appreciate being aware of what’s happening in an interaction. I also do anti-sexist and awareness-group work.
