Teaching with More Awareness

At a workshop on class oppression, I discharged on learning hurts. Now when I teach RC fundamentals, I say one thing at a time. One sentence. No more. Then I listen to the responses, comments, and questions. It gives me a lot of information about what I need to say next. I also ask questions, such as, “Who in your daily life can listen to you effectively?” “What happens for you when you hear a baby crying?” “Have you noticed that people use your attention to get their thoughts straight?” Then I learn from the answers. The questions are not for discharge, although it is fine when discharge happens. They are questions that I need to ask in order to teach each person.
