LESSON SUMMARY

Lesson 2: Real, But Not True Practices

In this lesson you'll experience creating a safe container with the Real Not True Practice.   Here we’ll explore how to hold our stories as real, but not true.  Sometimes the best way to deal with a story we are caught in, is to just allow it.   There are several elements we can bring both as a listener and a storyteller that we will explore in this lesson.

 

LESSON CONTENT

Real But Not True

PRACTICE #1: Real But Not True Container Practice

Put the principles above into action with a partner.

  1. Choose Your Storyteller and Listener: Choose who will be listening and offering presence and who will be sharing their story.
  2. Maintain awareness: Make sure both the listener and storyteller unhook from the limited view just enough to be the awareness of the story.
  3. Hold Real, But Not True: Realize your story may be true to you and real to you, but it’s not true - it’s a concept and interpretation created by your thinking mind.
  4. Bring In the View of Emptiness: Bring in more emptiness and awareness so that we are not merged with the thinker and getting too caught in the story.
  5. Mirror Non-judgmental presence: Mirror and amplify open, nonjudgmental, unconditional presence as you bring an open-hearted compassionate ear.
  6. Hold that It’s unknown what is true: Hold that it’s just unknown what is true bringing openness and curiosity to the story, not just emptiness.
  7. Support creating an uninhibited stream: Hold an unconditional presence so that the storyteller gets the direct sensation that there's nothing that they can't say and nothing they should or shouldn’t do.
  8. Find the nuggets of truth: If we create an stream there is an opportunity, through our natural awareness and knowing to find what’s true inside of it.
  9. Submit your practice: Once you’ve done this practice above, submit it in the practice form below to earn credit towards your Water Module Apprentice Badge and answer the reflection question below.
