"Do your best to practice compassionate listening. Do not listen for the sole purpose of judging, criticizing or analyzing. Listen only to help the other person express himself and find some relief from suffering." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
My approach is one of compassionate listening. No one is broken, needs to be fixed or changed. Once we are able to express ourselves we tap into what I call Innate Wisdom. When given the opportunity to be heard without interruption, judgment, criticism, analyses, or advice-giving, we discover that we have all the answers we have been seeking.
Compassion is the human quality of understanding the suffering of others and wanting to alleviate it. Listening is an accepting and nonjudgmental invitation for others to be themselves, without any worry about disapproval. The mere act of expressing what is inside can be healing. After feelings are released, then plans can be made for how to improve our situation and become all we were intended to be.
"The human soul doesn’t want to be advised, fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is". ~ Parker J. Palmer
I have been a Holistic Life Coach and Spiritual Mentor for the last 17 years. I treasure the belief that we all have our own innate wisdom and this is our ultimate guide. My calling is to support you towards your own empowerment and understanding that you are a wholesome and worthy person just as you are, right now.
Like Michelangelo chipping away the stone until the beauty of David was revealed, we have to let go of all that is no longer needed for our highest good. I would like to support you in discovering the beauty you have within.
