Have you seen the one with Hayden Dawes talking about the interplay between being a Quaker and a therapist? He views Quakerism as an invitation from Spirit to show up in his professional work in a more wholehearted way.
“I think being a Quaker makes me a better therapist and being a therapist makes me a better Quaker. Learning to see that of God in everyone, I think, helps me to sit in the distress that others might bring in. And also having my own distress, having a Quaker meeting to hold all that might be coming up for me in my own life . . . so that I can show up in a more authentic, genuine [way].”
