Tribute to a mentor

Tribute to a mentor

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do, there are 1000 ways to kneel and kiss the earth-Rumi. The other day, I learned one of my mentors has passed away: Dr. Richard Kopp, a teacher who introduced Adlerian therapy to me and was one of the most genuine, creative, grounded psychologists I ever knew. He created metaphor therapy, and my metaphor for him was Kermit the frog. True to his authentic self. I recall him singing songs to us on guitar during our last day of class. When someone can truly share the gifts with the world in the most authentic way, this is spirituality. Spirituality at it’s essence is serving others freely in a passionate manner, and hopefully in a way that is following your bliss. May he rest in loving peace.
