Example: This is a Temenos that I did about Me At Work:
Transcript: I must not behave lovingly. — I speak their language not mine and become part of the system that way.
I sold myself too cheap. — The system pegged me as something I did not want to be.
I followed the wrong role models. — I was provided with inauthentic role models.
I avoided conversations because I was a coward. — The others made themselves bigger than they were.
I saw that clearly and did not acknowledge their pain. — I couldn’t love them enough for them not to need to do that anymore.
I didn’t digest appreciation and acknowledgements. — (The system provided less appreciation than I wanted (needed?).) distorted perception
I MADE MYSELF SMALLER THAN I WAS AND IT’S STILL SO F***ING HARD TO WRITE THAT DOWN!
Advice: This was a five minute exercise and it’s an example you can understand without much context. It’s preferable to draw a visualisation of the Temenos as suggested below.
