Matter is not
These are amazing words of Ervin Lazlo.
It has been an unbelievable privilege to learn about what reconstructive is about the last 7 years.
I learned most as a facilitator, facilitating my groups again and again, participating at trainings again and again, not so much in books. Looking back the classical advice PRACTISE, PRACTISE, PRACTISE was a key anchor.
As important was the community – the colleagues, the structure of RIIHS the school, the progress of the teaching -.
Like all valuable things in life this learning process is slow. It took me years of practice and training before I could approach its essence. Looking back at how I wrote about the work throughout the years I see the process and its tardiness. So, where we are now is probably only at the beginning of the road.
It’s weird to see that some people think they can do this work outside of RIIHS, on their own, after little training. This is out of tune with what this work is about. So what more is there to say?
Isn’t it incredible that it’s specifically in this period – where the nature of our encounters was changed from face-to-face to online – that we seem to fasten the learning process?
In human encounters we sense a glimpse of life’s mystery. That’s why they are the essence.
