A mirror to myself

I’ll never forget doing my first slot at the Caravan. It was daunting to say the least. But walking away from it that evening, I was struck by a tremendous sense of love and open heart.

There is something very precious to be there for another person who seeks to be heard, who is willing to risk opening up to a complete stranger, to share their burden so that they can go lighter.

The Caravan teaches humility and humanity. It’s a humbling and enriching experience, and it is a road of self-discovery, for many of the clients hold mirrors to ourselves.
