DENVER — 'Holding space' for someone means to be with that person without judgment, to donate your ears and heart without wanting anything back, according to Psychology Today. Maryam Farhang appears to be a master at it.
“It’s just so rewarding. I think maybe 50% is for the people I work with and 50% is for myself,” she explained with a laugh.
Farhang is a cultural navigator, someone who helps refugees adjust to life in a new country with different norms and values. “This is the only job where I can see the difference in people’s lives right away and I’m so grateful.”
