On mentoring and giving peace
I’ve been very fortunate to be in a continuing opportunity of mentoring and being mentored. This makes my personal and professional life very meaningful.
In mentoring sessions where I am the mentor or the mentee, I appreciate and crave for the moments when we enter a state of both flow and peace. These circumstances are indeed psychologically safe spaces where insights are corrected and developed on top of each other. There is great fulfillment in both understanding something deeper than before or imparting wisdom that may enable another to flourish.
Society needs more of these kinds of authentic spaces. I sometimes lament how extremely consumerist we tend to act – always competing for attention to sell something, or always craving entertainment that delights the senses even if they do not necessarily deepen our understanding of each other and the world.
Schools can and should be these spaces of peace and flow.
John 20:19-23. “Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, so I send you.”
