The Southern Nigeria Leaders’ Workshop

I am happy to write about the Southern Nigeria Leaders’ Workshop, held in September 2015 in Enugu (Enugu State).

It was a great opportunity for me to learn how to teach RC by modeling rational behavior, exhibiting a good attitude, being a friend, and welcoming other people’s friendship.

I discharged lots of distresses that I have had for quite some time as a result of oppressions in my environment. And I was reminded of the one-point program of RC: “to use RC to seek recovery of one’s occluded intelligence and innate humanness, and to assist others to do the same.”

Sincerely the environment of the workshop, the recreation, and the Co-Counseling sessions were powerful instruments for discharging.

A statement by Dottie Curry (a former International Liberation Reference Person for Elders), who led my first RC teachers’ training workshop, has stayed in my heart and mind in my everyday desire to keep learning and leading in RC. She said that it is important for a counselor to remain aware and alert, and understand RC theory and practice, and also not be impatient or judgmental. Chioma Okonkwo (the Area Reference Person for Lagos, Nigeria), who led the Southern Nigeria Leaders’ Workshop, exhibited all these positive attributes.
