Gentle Teaching provides unique tools to best support the needs of that person to begin healing / progressing as they are, rather than simply meeting a standard set for them. Adopting this philosophy has been one of the most natural and important investments I’ve made in myself and who I am becoming.
Every day, we interact with people in our homes, neighbourhoods, communities and social groups. From how we greet a friend, to simply holding the door for a complete stranger, it is the genuineness in that encounter that defines our character. Gentle Teaching has taught me to be mindful of the way I interact with people as they may not remember what we say or what we do, but the love and compassion we show will make a lasting impact. Gentle Teaching showed me how much growth I needed to find within myself in order to care for and nurture all of my past, current, and future relationships. The way we treat other people is a true reflection of how much love we are first able to give ourselves.
The adoption of Gentle Teaching has facilitated the person I aspire to be and the direction my life is moving so naturally. It has shown me the power of relationships and how essential it is to build connection with others in order to establish trust and foster growth between both parties. Throughout more than five years with COR and under this philosophy, I have learned that the only way to empower someone to accept support and grow as an individual, trust must be established and remain at the core of your relationship. Growth and improvement is often met with hesitation, and when people experience a revolving door of support and people in their lives, lack of trust prevents any growth.
