Become a lay counsellor

Karuna's Goal

activity icon 3142 pts


Done, with Genevieve, Joyce, Janet, etc: It was a long, painful journey - both personally/emotionally and practically. I have sacrificed and tolerated a lot, even changing around my sabbatical plans. Now I can finally call myself a counsellor. I get to be there for others, while making long-term investments in my own emotional stability. 

WHY: This is actually about learning to listen with compassion. This is not easy, because it requires us to surrender our own paradigm to accept someone else's worldview. The few times I have managed to do something close to this, I felt like I was listening to the person's soul. It was hugely interesting and powerful for both of us. Becoming a laycounsellor will require me to learn this skill and use it to help people.
