The term paideia best captures the use of kindness, which is the cornerstone of the Mainspring Approach. Cornel West explains paideia in his memoir Living and Loving Out Loud.
This process uses the power of kindness towards self to interrupt the pattern of suffering in secret and in silence. An invitation to create space to explore what it means to feel accepted in my own story, loved in my own story; my truth.
An invitation to explore assumptions and expectations that were not met. In other words, exploring broken promises. Kindness allows the couple to unite in one intention, one story-embedded in acceptance and empathy.
Kindness wraps the family in empathy. Families invested in kindness have no limits to what they can explore or achieve. The invitation is to learn how to use kindness as a pathway to love, understanding and forgiveness.

"I never thought I would make it through my mom's passing. Thank you for helping me understand that healing is a practice. The practice is the journey. The journey creates the healing."

Therapy is a way to better understand personal narratives--stories we communicate internally about who we are, where we come from, and how we present to others. This is huge because it informs how we feel and deal when life starts to happen.
Fractures in our narratives cause us to show up disjointed. In other words, the inability to use kindness, as a tool, to bring all parts of self together.
