A nice blog post from Figs (Fiachra O’Sullivan) in SF:

I just love how down to earth this guy is. Love his use of language.
Love his simple guidelines for folks.

He has three steps to help people come to their senses:

1. Notice your reactivity ASAP
2. Become curious about what’s happening inside you
3. Share it the moment you’re able

But I would add a couple other steps in there:

1a. Breathe; take some deep breaths
1b. Feel your feelings

I like how the focus is on yourself and how you can share about yourself, and what your experience says about you. It’s a different sort of consciousness. It’s about sharing rather than struggling.
