Learning – For A Change

DSCF0941Here are a few simple steps to learning from experience – any experience at all.

Reflect on these questions while day dreaming, writing, drawing, painting, or creating something, even cooking.

  1. What happened? Describe it.
  2. How did you feel? What was your inner reaction?
  3. What thoughts went through your mind during, and not long after?
  4. How do you feel now about the experience?
  5. What questions or unresolved issues remain, if any?

Some clients use this format for writing an email to a therapist. It gives them a more clear focus. They end up learning heaps from the exercise, and then they get helpful feedback from their counsellor or spiritual director.
