They say that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. I see in my own work how this is really a two way street, when the teacher is ready, the student appears also. It seems as I evolve and change my focus, so do the people with whom I work.
In A Course in Miracles there is a special psychotherapy pamphlet. In it, the question is raised, “How do you know when “therapy” is complete?” The answer? When the THERAPIST looks upon the client without any judgment. Therapy, according to the course, is as much about the teacher as the student. In fact, the two are always interchangeable, always learning together.
I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the lives of those with whom I work. As a teacher, I am truly a perpetual student, always growing, always learning. As much as our work together is a blessing to me, it does require effort on both part of the student, and the teacher. So, there are some “pre-requisites” that you should consider before you decide to work with me (or any teacher for that matter!)
1. You have to know that you need to change.
2. You have to trust that I will help you change.
3. You have to do the work to change.
All three are important. I cannot help you with number one or number three. My job is to focus on number two, providing you a trustworthy space for authentic change. Some of the things I teach feel highly “improbable.” Some of the things I ask you to do might feel like a waste of your quality time. But, I ask that when you work with me, do your best to suspend any disbelief during the time that we are together. Also, do not waste your time by not doing the “work.” Trust that you will get out of it what you put into it.
My promise to you is that I will never ask you to do anything I am not willing to do or have not already done. I cannot make any guarantees beyond that except this, I offer you a path to your power, a path to real peace. It is not going to turn you into someone you are not. It is not going to ensure that you live “challenge free.” The goal of the work is to help you remain at peace in the center of your life, while your life goes on around you. The goal of the work is to help you sit in the center of your power. You may not be in control of all that happens, but you will learn to always be in charge.
