What We Are Capable Of

At a recent workshop I saw a session with a “climate change denier” client. The person believed that climate change was a myth, that the “crisis” was fabricated, and that focusing on climate issues, inside and outside of RC, was a waste of time.

The counselor (whose safety and shelter had recently been directly threatened by climate change) remained open, respectful, and delighted with the client. The counselor did not try to “change the client’s mind” but rather was committed to the client regaining discharge in order to reclaim their mind.

It was awe-inspiring to watch the counselor not be restimulated and instead act with responsibility and even tenderness. It reminded me of what we are capable of when we really use the RC process.
