Three Tips to Hold Transformational Space
The first consultation I ever did was on the floor in my living room.
I had just put up a page on my website and somehow the client had found me through a search engine, driving from the next state over.
I lived with my roommate in a rickety old cottage at the time. We couldn’t afford a couch, so we sat on cushions on the floor when she arrived.
I was so nervous my hands shook when I poured her tea, but as we started talking all my worries about not being experienced enough, professional enough, or good enough just evaporated.
Suddenly I was simply sitting with a person who needed help.
A person who was so fully, vulnerably human I couldn’t help but fall in love with her.
A person who had been on such a hard, unique, amazing journey so far. And a person who, amazingly, wanted to share her journey with me.
I was so moved I forgot all about my worries and just fell into the profound honor of holding space for her.
Since that first consultation I have had a huge diversity of experiences in holding space for people…
Week-long retreats, one-on-one mentoring, packed conference rooms, virtual classes of thousands.
Online, in-person, in the woods, on a stage, sitting on the floor for tea.
And with every experience I can’t help but fall more in love with the practice of holding space.
Are you someone who holds space for folks (or wants to start)? If you teach classes, see clients, coach groups or simply want to create a healing space for others, this new video is for you.

The program, which was specifically created for my fellow empaths and highly sensitives, helps you create a business that is so aligned with your soul’s purpose, it radiates wellbeing on every level (financial, creative, and spiritual).
Sign up before March 16th to get $80 off the class! And an invite from me to a live online coaching event called Ask Asia Anything (about business).
Because the space you create in this world, just by being yourself, is transformational.
And when you see business for what it is—a spiritual journey— you can step fully into your innate gifts (and your ability to truly change the world).
Thank you Asia.
I very much resonated with the simple truth of the space holder’s energy and the connection between them and the person they are holding space for being more important than anything else! I am studying to be a counselor and found your insights and wisdom so helpful. At times I become fearful and ask myself “am I going to be able to help this person?!” but like you say, they have the innate ability to help and heal themselves, we are there to hold a safe and nurturing space for them, which allows them explore, discover and heal. So many light-bulb moments.
So much gratitude!
Hey Elke, thank you for taking the time to share how this piece has spoken to you. It’s so human (and quite stressful!) to worry about our abilities to help, especially as sensitives sitting with others we know are in pain, and I know Asia will be touched that the material reminded you of your role and power as space-holder for their process <3 Thank you for the gifts you are sharing, and sending blessings that this knowing may be a touchstone in your career!
Light bulb reminder was we as therapists hold the space and the person were holding the space for does the healing. I’ve known this to be true but not always fully embodied it, usually when I haven’t been holding space for myself. Great reminder. Thank you. I’m definitely looking at joining your course. I asked an you popped up on my radar today. So definitely exploring that. 🧡
Hey Dara, thank you for connecting here! Asia will be so glad to know that this video was a reminder of a truth for you. And what a potent insight—that we need to hold that space for ourselves to hold it with our full awareness for others <3 If you have any questions about BSJ, feel free to reach out to the team at [email protected]. It really is a beautiful journey and we’d be delighted for you to join us!
It’s our energy and presence that matters more than knowledge. Yes! I’ve always felt this way! And I’m signing up for the course. I want to start my own business to help facilitate healing, and to benefit, uplift and solidify my own spiritual and metaphysical path.
Thank you, Asia.
Yay Cindy!! I’m so glad to know you’ll be joining us—it really is such an illuminating, helpful, and inspiring portal. I hope we’ll hear about your journey through the materials, and manifesting your business dream! In welcome and excitement <3
This came at such a perfect time. I’m preparing to teach a class, which is a new direction for me. I’ve been feeling nervous, and what you said about it being our energy that heals, not the information was so helpful for me. As I’ve been working on the curriculum, I have been so conscious of wanting it to come from the heart, not the intellect. Your words just emphasized this even more, and made me feel like I can give myself permission to let go of some of the pressure I’ve been feeling. Thank you.
🙌 Yes Sunny! I have a feeling that so much beauty is going to come through you with that permission. Asia will be delighted her video helped to affirm your intuition around teaching from the heart <3 So much One Willow love behind this new endeavor—you got this!
This was a beautiful explanation, Asia. I especially loved the reminder throughout about “all healing is self-healing.”
Yes!! THat is such a big one <3 So glad this resonated with you Jenni, thank you for your kind words!
