Most people dont like unanswered questions and want to solve them as soon as possible, in the same way as they want to get rid of symptoms without looking at the underlying cause.
If we deal with symptoms in this way, the cause is not affected and so the same or similar problem will return until the cause is addressed.
This also applies to questions, if we rush to fix them with an answer, we may miss the opportunity for a deeper, or more unexpected answer. The important thing is to Live the Questions.
This involves allowing space, for unknowing, for discomfort, for lack of resolution - for ourselves as practitioners and for our patients as well.
Our job is NOT to always have the answers, but may in fact be more to pose the questions, or to support the patient in discovering what their questions are. Often the questions are more important than the answers.
We will explore what it means for ourselves and for our patients - to live the questions, and find a path to a deeper level of healing in the process.
