Ten Commandments of Mediation

June 2, 2014

In recognition of Shavuot this week, celebrating the giving of the Law at Mt. Sinai, here are ten commandments that come to mind for me in my mediation practice.
1. Be present.

2. Show kindness and compassion.

3. Listen really well.

4. Be empathic.

5. Facilitate understanding.

6. Give them lunch.

7. Remain impartial.

8. Remember, this is their mediation not yours.

9. Be persistent.

10. Do no harm.
