Meditations and Intentions on My 3rd Year of Teaching
In just a few short minutes I’ll begin my third year of teaching new practitioners.
It gets easier and the imposter syndrome is lessened every year, but one thing that doesn’t change is the exhiliration and my intentions. This year I’m writing them down, to stay accountable to the Universe. It’s a bit of a peek behind the curtain and into my mind, which feels very vulnerable, but I think vulnerability is the secret garden of teaching.
- I will focus more on the students’ success than on being seen as an expert.
- I will maintain solid effort in preparing online materials throughout the year (a very new thing for me!)
- I will stand on my own two feet and not rely on student feedback for validation. AKA, f*ck off, Imposter Syndrome.
- I will continue to be okay with answering questions by saying, “I don’t know, let’s explore that together.”
- I will not indulge my ego being threatened by my students’ successes. (This is huge.)
- I will honor the Divine in all moments with such gratitude for the honor of teaching.
Here’s to another great year!
