From the Fox Chapel Area High School Counseling Department:
This week’s message is about The Naikan Reflection, a self-reflection method initially developed in Japan. The entire exercise takes about 10 minutes to complete. Naikan means “looking within.” Anyone, with or without religious affiliations, can do this activity. The process involves reflecting on the following three questions while focusing one’s attention on a particular person and time.
What did this person give to me? (giving)
What did I return to this person? (receiving)
What trouble did I cause this person? (hurting)
Doing this reflection helps to grow feelings of gratitude and appreciation for others. It also allows people to discover how much they take versus give in personal relationships.
We know we’ve said it many times, but that doesn’t make it any less true: Our community of supporters is truly the best around. We’re lucky to have you in our corner.
Last week, a group of members got together to start weeding our flower beds. They’re looking great! Thank you so much to all who stopped by. They’ll be back at it again this Wednesday at 1pm if you’d like to join them on our back patio.
Until next week, be safe, be well, and take care of each other.
