I think a lot of us have experienced the power of Acro to help us explore safe, intimate, non-sexual touch. For me this was part of the appeal of the practice but I also know it is a challenge for so many starting out. How do you encourage new practitioners to build safe space and how do you deal with people who don’t make you feel safe?
What in particular do you feel, is the challenge for new practitioners? Getting used to safe, intimate, non-sexual touch? For our community, we lead by example…we try to introduce newbies to the fun of acro’ing in an environment that is supervised and safe. But not all people respond well to some of the “intimate touch” and they leave. Is this what you are asking?
