  • What’s good about you, and what do you really care about?

    When I used to teach spirituality courses, we did an exercise in affirming others. It was a simple activity, yet one of the most effective teaching techniques I ever used. 

    We arranged the desks in a semi-circle facing a single chair called the “hot seat,” which each student took a turn in. In the first part of the exercise, the one in the hot seat was asked to tell the rest of us: “What’s good about me?”
