Embodying Transparency in the Teacher’s Seat
Date: Wednesday, January 15, 2019
Time: 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Pacific time zone (1.5 hours)
Description: Many of us feel the need to move beyond models of the “infallible guru” to find a new paradigm for sharing truth that appreciates a person may legitimately have a significant realization and transmission to share, but at the same time, is still a human being in a process of continual unfolding.
Whatever blind spots or undigested material a teacher has personally will inevitably express somehow with their community of students. If this is not acknowledged, it inevitably creates suffering and stagnation for everyone. What does it mean to embody spiritual integrity when our less than perfectly integrated parts show up in the room?
In this webinar, Miranda Macpherson will share a possibility for sitting deeply in our legitimate authority as a teacher, while modeling transparency as human beings who all must be humble in the face of their own shadow. How might we demonstrate integrity when it is obvious we have made a mistake, or have said or done something that is less than wise? How can we even harness these moments as opportunities for collective learning about what it is to be both inherently whole and also a work in progress?
This webinar will include a rich teaching, where Miranda will share personally from her three decades of teaching experience which has involved equal parts of grace and clumsiness. Together, we will explore harnessing it all to become more truly authentic human beings as well as skilled and trustworthy teachers. The webinar will also include a breakout inquiry in pairs, followed by group discussion.
