Interpreting The World
The acknowledgement of the feelings of others, requires a special sort of honesty with ourselves. Not everyone has a developed sense of empathy.
Those that do, have a special place in society as empaths. The most valued type of empathic archetypes is known as Heyoka.
A Native American term, Heyoka’s are living emotional mirrors for those around them. The term means ‘sacred clown’ or ‘fool’. They reveal our shortcomings and weaknesses. They show us our faults and add a way to develop these faults.
