The approach I use is very simple but as a foundation over time it becomes a natural cultivation of deep healing, beauty and insight and the exploration of consciousness beyond most conventional channels for awakening. The foundations of my approach was shown to me by Thessa Sophia over years of training and deep intiatory work together.
We start by guiding clients into an experience of stillness in relationship to their body. We then explore the nature of our experience often in relationship to a specific area of inquiry via the somatic experience. The somatic experience is including all sensations, thoughts, emotions and movement of energy arising in the body in relationship to our chosen area of inquiry. The inclusion and acceptance of all phenomena in relationship to the body from a foundation of stillness becomes essential to the transformation of what is occuring.
The somatic experience when full included and experienced becomes a doorway into the unconscious mind allowing a natural movement of awareness towards the more causal levels of suffering and seperation. Meditations with me have been aquated to being in a gently guided medicine journey inviting you to settle into the experiencing beyond the conscious mind.
If we hold stillness together with the experience we are having we allow the perfect conditions for natural change and healing to occur. Stillness is foundational to all healing and transformation.
My meditations with others are body centred and often dynamic. I use a state a of empathy to feel what is happening for others in their body, and together we explore the sensations, thoughts and emotions and energetics of what is occuring and what is most present for them. I say together, because through out the session I am continually aware of my own experience, in relationship to what is occuring, as I have found that exploring and clearing in myself and coming into union within something being explored, acts as a catylst to the one I am holding to go to the next level of coherence.
I use sound, resonant silence and primordial speak to cayalise and harmonise the essential nature of another. Primordial speak facililates intiation into deeper stillness in a gentle and natural way.
The foundations of all my work is stillness, acceptance and allowance of everything that is occuring, acknowledging and recognising there is always an experience being had and honoring the unique interconnectivity between all things occuring. Often something does not shift, because the nature of the experience has not been fully revealed and or experienced on an unconscious level or the Essential quality been remembered on a body, visceral level.
As we sit together often what is most basic, be it a state of being, experience of uniqueness, new leve of union or insight that is being cultivated reveals itself for integration, this is where we begin to unify a higher aspect of ourselves with all other parts.
The exploration of identity on the deepest levels of emptiness is my main focus and as soon as I can I guide you into this area of inquiry. Identity work is maintaining a basic inquiry into who is having the experience, what are the properties of the sense of "I", "I am", and is there access to "I-less-ness" and emptiness).
Sessions can move very deep and beyond ordinary consciousness but essentially the foundations remain the same, exploring the nature of our experience, and stillness in relationship to the body.
If healing is being called for in a specific area we simply meet it as part of the wider process, that is preparing the ground for greater levels of being. I do not hold a view that anything needs healing, rather healing is an act of grace and that grace appears naturally through the union between stillness and the experience of seperation; thoughts, feelings and sensations and the basic state of being appearing out of nature within the individual.
Stillness is the perfect condition for potential to arise, it drives the changing nature of things and all healing experiences and states of being emerge because of a level of union with stillness and what ever is active and moving.
Healing as a journey towards wholeness
Wholeness is an undivided or unbroken completeness that arises through an integration of all the essential aspects of being human. It is a reflection of balance between the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual dimensions of our beings. This totality leaves nothing wanting and gives birth to spiritual healing through love and joy, and informs acts of compassion, surrender, wisdom, discernment, celebration and play.
These are the fundamental aspects of core essence, the integration of which is the natural result of healing from a foundation of stillness.
Once a certain wholeness with yourself and life has been reached you naturally become available to living in continuity with infinity, which is to literally become the ever changing dynamic spontaneous expression of infinity in each moment. This is where we can begin to explore identity, visiting exciting themes such as natural law, flow, uniqueness & conscious creation.
No matter what is happening or being called for, its exciting to be able to embrace healing when called for, come home to wholeness and bring that into all areas of life, and be ready and open to the catalysts for wider explorations of perception,consciousness and identity, in ripeness of moment.
Eventually we can recognise that realising who are are on the deepest levels of infinity, awakening to true nature, naturally gives rise to healing and wholeness, thus diverting all focus to the exploration of identity.
Union is the expression of beauty; It is the source of grace,
the divine proportion of nature revealing what is and always has been
designed to come together, one way or another.
