It is said that Jesus was acknowledged in every place he visited except for his own town of Nazareth. In Matthew 13:57 we read, “And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own county, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” Also, it is said that Muhamad was not acknowledged in his own town of Mecca but that he started his prophet’s quest in Medina.
I started teaching my Jungian Coaching method at a local school in Zagreb, Croatia. After one year I moved the program to the neighboring country of Slovenia where the original material was upgraded both graphically and structurally. Yet the knowledge and practical tools came all the way from Tel Aviv. Nowadays, the tools have been translated into English, Slovene, Turkish, Greek, and finally into Hebrew. Last week we finally launched the Israeli domestic school, and with Noah Levi’s contribution we presented our Israeli students with the Hebrew version of the Jungian Coaching Kit.
I must confess, though I conducted thousands of coaching sessions with the English Jungian coaching tools, having the Hebrew version in my hands feels like “home,” and leaves me asking Jesus’ question: Will a prophet have honour in his home town?
