Years ago, my employer (a community hospital) sponsored a retreat to help the employees learn how to take care of themselves. The idea was the happier and more content the practitioner, the more he/she can give to the patient. There were a variety of activities, but one was very powerful.

The group sat in 2 circles, one within the other - so each individual on the inside circle had a person sitting behind them. The outside person whispered something that he or she wished they had been told - a word or short phrase that would have been a healing message to them. The outside person then moved to the next person and so on and so on... the effect as a member of the inside circle was that you received these healing messages, one after another, as the outside circle moved around.

There were probably 40 of us in the entire group. I remember many people being totally overcome with emotion. One that stood out was an extremely tough cop - he had joined our retreat to see if it would be beneficial for the local polic department as a team builing activity.... he was so overcome he sobbed uncontrolably for several minutes. He said it was the single most emotional moment of his life to that point.

I would like to try a similar version here. the idea is to just add a word or phrase to the thread that you WISH you had heard from someone - it can be someone from your past or your present.... it should be a message that you would find healing... and by sharing it, hopefully other men and woman here will benefit as well. Feel free to add more than one entry... I don't think we can hear too many healing messages!

Dan

What a great idea Dan!


"I love you."

"I believe you."

"It's not your fault."

"You are special."
