Went for an interview a couple of days ago. It is a curious thing how an interview for a teaching job is set up. In a room with 10 or so participants sitting in a "u" shape with the interviewee at the front. What a set up for disaster. Lets make it so uncomfortable for the potential to be sucked out of any possibility... I find it an archaic way of being ..firing questions which have nothing to do with experiencing each other at all,,,,, it is not about communing and all about barriers and pretence .. Here I am a forty year old woman sitting in front of a group of young 20s maybe a couple of 30 year olds watching their ego attaching to thoughts which have nothing to do with me .. the blind, putting on acts of knowing, with out knowing how obvious their unconsciousness is expressing itself.... setting the physical dynamics as they were,, automatically sets up a hierarchy in which the interviewers put themselves in a position of power and the mind set automatically comes with it.. They also put a little desk with my chair.. which, i found an emotional security for them to create this mental leveling of the players...I don't know how the kids can operate under such positioning ... takes the humanness out of the picture and creates this separation.. sets up the fearful rabbit story...... as long as we come from the space of unequal expression and thought,,, there will be no understanding of the other, nor will there be true healing.
