If you are looking for a practitioner, teacher, coach or mentor... Here is what Sydney Banks said about how to choose your teacher in
"The Missing Link":
There are so many teachers in the world and so many theories about life. When selecting a teacher ask yourself… “Is my teacher a well-balanced person?“ "Does my teacher reflect and demonstrate the quality of life I desire?" If the answer is “no” to any of these questions, move on in your journey. Otherwise, you may become one of the blind, led by the blind. There is an enormous difference between... Finding your own inner wisdom and adopting someone else’s beliefs.
Any good teacher will tell you never to be a follower. A wise teacher will draw out your innate knowledge.
