Truth expressed without compassion can easily be hurtful. Compassion expressed without honesty becomes delusional. Ultimately to create a healthier world, truth needs to be joined with compassion when relating with ourselves as well as with others. You likely have heard others claiming to be just ‘telling the truth,’ when in reality they are using the truth as a weapon to hurt us or someone else. Truth is important, but we need to be conscious of why and how we express something that may be hurtful to another. Truth and Compassion are important values that at times may pull in different directions. At NHI, we learn that compassion, and compassionate truth-telling, is a healing modality in its own right. Massage, compassion, the truth, empty cups and full-hearted living are among the healing skills our students learn.
Telling The Truth With Compassion
Students & Employers Love Us!
My time at NHI was and always has been a fantastic experience. It was a lot of hard work and time but it’s all worth it from my experiences. NHI only wants to help their students exceed and provide guidance in anyway they can. I had the best support system and I still keep in touch with my classmates. This school has helped me succeed in my dream and getting a job that I love.
