I sit with humanity one person at a time, but humanity nonetheless. The universality of feelings, sensations, thinking, beliefs, and efforts at loving grows ever-more deeply familiar and beautiful to me, while simultaneously remaining somewhat mysterious. And that too is beautiful. I take much comfort in being with this lovely paradox and my clients seem to as well. The multidimensionality of the human experience is fascinating. After all this time, I still feel awe-struck with wonder and gratitude at the gifts these people bring to me through just their sheer ever-opening presence of Self.
Sitting with Humanity
Published by The Practical, Fanciful Pagan
I'm gay, married, Pagan, and Progressive-minded from California, raised by hippie intellectuals. I relocated to Massachusetts for graduate school and never moved back to the Left Coast. My day job is that of psychotherapist in private practice, a profession I love with all my heart and a dream fully realized that I'd had since fifteen years of age. These are my rantings, reviews, and reflections. If nothing else, I hope you find something worth reading here and leave the rest. View all posts by The Practical, Fanciful Pagan
