what is Safety?
we have not found a simple answer, instead we've come to realize how deeply personal Safety is.
we've noticed that Safety & Lack-of-Safety often look, feel & are very different from moment-to-moment & person-to-person. this realization brought us to a challenge:
can we create a structure to guide a self-examination of Safety & Lack-of-Safety that honors personal experience?
it is exploring this question that led to us creating the tool & process we call The Safety Wheel™. as a system The Safety Wheel™ is designed to guide an exploration of what impacts, influences & communicates our personal states of Safety & Lack-of-Safety.
The Safety Wheel™ Basics is a digital resource that supports a personal exploration of Safety & Lack of Safety

why does Safety matter?
to us Safety matters so much because it's presence &/or absence effects our capacity for connection so directly. when we are able to cultivate Safety we are more capable of connecting deeply with ourselves & those whom we love & care about.
but that's not the whole story...
if we desire to nurture & develop our capacity for connection we have to to be able to recognize, acknowledge & accept when our bodies are feeling Unsafe. when we don't we run a very real risk of causing harm both to ourselves & those we are in relationship with.
when we are Unsafe in ourselves we are Unsafe. period.
we recognize that for many Lack-of-Safety is constant, consistent & often ignored/suppressed/by-passed (by necessity or otherwise). we've witnessed time & time again how this reality creates cycles of harm in bodies, minds & relationships at both small & large scales.
we know that an important step to changing this reality in supportive ways has to be one of cultivating awareness of the states of Safety & Lack-of-Safety. we need to build our capacity to recognize what contributes to our states of Safety, Lack-of-Safety & the changes from one toward the other. The Safety Wheel™ is a tool designed to support us in tracking the nuance of these dynamic states in tangible ways.
this system is:
- a dynamic process of exploring the personal experiences shaping the states of Safety & Lack-of-Safety as they occur in our bodies, minds & environments.
- a guided practice of noticing how / when / where we experience shifting between Safety & Lack-of-Safety.
- a tool to support us in cultivating awareness & relational capacity within our lived experiences of both Safety & Lack-of-Safety.
this system is not:
a one-size-fits-all-answers to what Safety or Lack-of-Safety.
a tool to tell you exactly what to do or when to do it to create Safety for yourself.
a philosophy emphasizing the moral superiority of the state of Safety.
The Safety Wheel™ is a process & tool designed to supplement & support the work of relational development & self-discovery.
The Safety Wheel™ is best approached from a baseline (or higher) awareness of one's sensations, emotions & thoughts as they pertain to Safety & Lack-of-Safety.
for those new to the work of relational development &/or self-discovery we recommend using the The Safety Wheel™ with the support & guidance of an experienced practitioner.
we also recommend the support & guidance of an experienced practitioner in using the The Safety Wheel™ for those who have unprocessed &/or substantial trauma.
