Embracing the Journey of Gentle Teaching: A Personal Reflection

As I reflect on my journey with Gentle Teaching, I can confidently say that it has propelled me to become the best support and friend possible. My venture into this philosophy was seamless, given my innate disposition towards gentleness, love, and empathy. Before joining the COR family, I perused their website and envisioned a rewarding experience where I could align my values and contribute to a culture of compassion.

Through additional training in the Gentle Teaching philosophy, I’ve not only embraced but also nurtured a culture of gentleness within the team of individuals I support. Central to this approach is the sincere valuing of each person for who they are, coupled with a consistent demonstration of love and gratitude for the friendships we share.

The true litmus test of Gentle Teaching’s impact on my personal and professional growth emerges in moments of conflict. It’s easy to embody calmness and love when everything is smooth, but the real challenge lies in adversity. During such times, I find strength in maintaining a culture of gentleness by extending positive regard, unconditional love, and acceptance. I make a conscious effort to ensure that my words, presence, hands, and gaze convey a profound sense of love and compassion, driven by a genuine desire to help.

As I look ahead, I eagerly anticipate continuing and building upon the friendships I’ve forged at COR throughout my life. The privilege of supporting such remarkable individuals serves as a constant reminder of how fortunate I am. This awareness fuels my commitment to becoming a Gentle Teaching advocate, not only in my support role but also within the broader health region.

In essence, Gentle Teaching has not only shaped my approach to support but has become an integral part of who I am. My gratitude for the transformative power of this philosophy knows no bounds, and I am inspired to carry its principles forward, making a positive impact on the lives of those I support and the community at large.
