In the long history of spirituality, those recognized as somehow spiritually „great“ have consistently been called „Teacher“ – they help others to learn, to become teachable. Spiritual teachers (who are never „experts“) do three things: First and foremost, they listen. Second, they ask questions. Third, they tell stories. Each practice reflects the acceptance of not having all the answers, and each teaches the essential truth of spituality's open-endedness.
