Every time I deliver the Innate Wellbeing workshops at the homeless shelter, I feel like I come away with much more of my own learning from the participants, than anything I pass on to them, and yesterday was no exception. Every visit seems to be a
lesson in humility and proof of the resiliency of being human.
The sole participant at my 5th workshop, a gentleman about one year older than me, was nothing less than a bundle of wisdom, joy, and humour. Shortly after beginning our discussion,
I realized there was nothing I could share that would "reduce his suffering" since he clearly didn't have any. In fact every time I started toward the discussion of what I've learned about life, I was seriously worried I would do something to mess up his already
perfect view of the world. For the most part I just needed to shut up and love him, and maybe share a few amusing stories of my own, all of which he made incredibly easy to do.
