Port Macquarie Counselling and Life Coaching

tea cup with quote it's not how big the home

"For too long, care has been conceived of as either practitioner-centered or patient-centered. In actuality, the healing relationship has always been a crucible for mutual transformation.

The bare willingness of human beings to encounter one another in the midst of our weaknesses and strengths is the quintessential transformative agent. But my experience tells me that it is nearly impossible for us to relate to another human being in this way if we do not begin to relate to ourselves in the same manner.

To walk such a path requires a method: a disciplined way of learning to pay attention to all that is arising within.

This is called mindfulness. But mindfulness is not simply a technique. It is an act of love. Our willingness to see, to hold ourselves closely just as we are, while being this way with another, is a revealing and deeply healing expression of care." -Saki Santorelli, in Healing Thyself
