Shaped by evolution, our minds are constantly busy scanning experiences and benchmarking it to some expectation to keep us safe and feeling pleasant. Here is an invitation to drop expectations to free up space in the head in order to truly hear ourselves and access our being.
This practise is inspired by Henri Nouwen, Catholic priest’s writings, “Only An Invitation”.

Only An Invitation, Henri Nouwen
Our world is so full of conditions —
demands, requirements, and obligations
that we often wonder
what is expected of us.
But when we meet a truly free person
there are no expectations,
only an invitationto reach into ourselves
and discover there
our own freedom.
