On Saturday I received my certificate from the chaplaincy training program at the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care. It was a very emotional experience for me, since our group had formed a unique bond over the past 10 months. Knowing them and being in their company taught me about kindness, authenticity, and how to give selflessly.
I thought I knew about all of these things when I started but I was wrong.
They all gave me so much without even realizing it, and it was a privilege to be in their company. I am missing them already.
