The Guest House by Rumi
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honourably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
How do we do this? How can we welcome and entertain all emotions that visit us? How can we learn from each emotion as though it has been sent as a guide from beyond? The emotions workshop will provide you with a map of how you recognise the birth of an emotion, how you can invite that emotion in and connect, explore, and express it, so you treat it honourably. You will experience ways of using the emotion as a guide from beyond, what is it wanting you to know and to do and be? You will gain insight and claim the gift of the emotions visit. The map provides a healthy framework of how to be with emotions, without denying they are there or pushing them down. It will enable you to move with the flow of emotions and support you in clearing yourself out for some new delight!
