Fifteen Souls


Fifteen souls appeared
ready to explore self-compassion.
I taught what I had learned
through my experience;
I shared my understanding.
We laughed a lot together.
There were moments
of quiet contemplation;
there were even a few silent tears.
And underneath it all,
a quiet awe,
the space to reflect,
to be…
In the end,
it wasn’t about what I gave to them–
their shining presence
gave so much more to me.
