The Guest House

By: Bryan Nixon, MA, LPC

I frequently encourage my clients to slow down and turn towards their difficult emotions, welcoming them with a posture of curiosity rather than judgment.

Our emotions are often guides to deeper meanings that won’t be realized if we judge our emotional experience as wrong because we would prefer to feel differently.

The Guest House by Rumi beautifully invites us into even our most difficult emotional experiences with a profound sense of hope.

Read it slowly. Read it often.
