The Way of the Rose

Part 1 ~ The Roots

What to expect ......

 

 

We will ground into the basic approach for healing & awakening exploring the nature of all phenomena from a foundation of stillness. All explorations will occur via the somatic experience in the body, sensation and experience becoming our doorway to the unconscious mind, emptiness becoming the dissolution of separate self.

 

We will learn how to alchemize the sense of self from a foundation of emptiness, towards the refinement and unification of infinite inner space.

 

All exploration will eventually be focused on the sense of "I" or "me" who is having the experience, and who or what is feeling separation from the infinite.

 

Over time we will naturally deepen into the a level of emptiness in the womb, lower than the Tan Dien. Eventually all explorations will occur from here.

 

 

Depending upon your receptivity to the approach, realisation of stillness and capacity to navigate the inner realms and what is alive for you as we work together, we will explore some if not all of the areas below in a non linear way. The first listed are primary to all else...some areas listed here we may not visit.

 

 

Surrender ~ Acceptance and allowance of all phenomena directly experienced in the body ~ a continually fresh exploration as to what is the nature of surrender in each moment, according to what is occurring and being called for.

 

Self Referral~ Our capacity for self referral is key to becoming fully self resourceful and responsible.  Self referral naturally develops our capacity to nurture and refine our inner garden, our reality, our relationships and openness to being deeply changed. The path of self referral will naturally evolve into the more advanced exploration of identity and mastery over transformation.

 

Inclusion ~ There is always an experience being had; relevant and significant according to nature. The key to seeing the unique inter-connectivity between all things is within our own experience, and the coming together of inner and outer. Through self referral we will make a journey towards reclaiming relational richness and depth, and the union of separation between  inner and outer.

 

Identity work ~ All explorations will eventually be focused on the sense of "I" or "me" who is having the experience, and who or what is feeling separation from the infinite. We will identify 3 major areas stuckness and stagnation in your life and dedicate our focus on pathways for the transmutation of self here towards fluidity and coherent expression.

                        

Recapitulation~ We will visit all relationships from a foundation of self referral. We will focus on core intimate relationships both past and present, one by one we will transform any identification within these relationships towards completion or claiming of a new fluid relational expression. We will cultivate an aware appreciation for significant others, and the richness, intimacy and growth that comes with claiming the potential of unique relating. We will cultivate deep acceptance when other falls away entirely and we enter the initiation of aloneness.

 

Outside Influence ~ We will learn how to identify and clear outside influence by exploring the phenomena at a causal level. We can come to see outside influence as an indicator of  identification we have yet to clear in ourselves, thus moving beyond any paradigm of conflict or battle of duality.

 

Masculine & Feminine ~ When we apply this approach within the context of intimate relationship, we can study the direct experience emerging out of origin of the basic polarities of masculine and feminine. Often people are referring to masculinity and femininity in terms of fixed identity, as opposed to having a genuine awareness of the properties of their own masculinity and femininity. Masculine and feminine as a basic polarity, are key to the exploration of identity.

 

Residential Experiential Journey

                                                                   @jessicabegin artwork

 

 

At some point in your studies I will invite you to join me on a residential intiatory journey on my home island in Pantelleria in the meditteranean. I have been running retreats here for many years, creating various pathways for intiation that are relevant to wombwork.

 

This is an optional part of the course but if chosen would be the stepping stone towards the next phase of our journey together.

 

I would tailor your experience here in communion with the Island and what is most alive for you at the time. I would be cultivating together with the island a unique intiatory journey for you.

These areas of inquiry will be visited according to your natural pace and the nature of the openings you are having. It is possible we will not visit these areas in depth in a first year together but rather dip in slowly, spiralling in and out of inquiry around these themes.

 

 

Intimacy & Pleasure ~  We will visit any key moments related to our sexuality in the past, inclusive of the first time you made love.  We will explore any core beliefs you have around receiving or giving pleasure, your experience of intimacy and the opposite gender. I will share basic yet powerful tools that make up the essential foundations of tantra, so you can develop intimacy with yourself and your partners whilst living in continuity with infinity. We will explore how to expand sensitivity to and of our sexual organs, inclusive of basic herbal healing for any minor ailments, the nurture and care of our body in relationship to our vital life force.

 

Pain & Evil~ Allowing ourselves to be the cause of pain, to accept that this is true about you ~ this will deeply change how you have known yourself to be. You begin to taste an untouchable wisdom as you surrender to the worst of yourself. Within the slow steady melting of a deepest fear you will find such heart, grace will reveal the ecstasy there, a unified embodied state all parts were pointing towards. We will explore and imagine the worst of ourselves and reality;  Through surrendering to the nature of "I" or "me" we will unveil nature beyond paradigms of suffering. This exploration may include an exploration of specific dark masculine and feminine archetypes and or collective areas of pain or suffering. We will focus on what moves and challenges you the most and thus as an area of inquiry is intimately relevant to your awakening. The paradigm of good and evil is intimately tied into the union of right and left hemispheres and upper and lower realms. Clearing identification with one plain of existence over another, is essential for embodiment.

 

 

 

Part 3 ~ The Flower

The Wild Unknown

 

The understanding of this art I am showing you goes deeper than our human experience to the most subtle and etheric; I am inviting you to become a mistress of non-duality, a principle or force that can raise your energy from the earthly plane into the beyond, expanding, raising, reaching ecstasy into the vast expanse of Sky; another name for her is, "sky dancer."

 

How ever the path expresses for each whole, these mysteries must be discovered for yourself; such art belongs to no, one, gender, thing or practice. Let such mystery be known and understood through deep investigation of self and the unearthing of your truest nature.

 

To pin such mystery down to one definition feels like missing the point of it all; it would be like saying this is what paradise is, this garden over here.

 

Live for the love of each whole and through dedication to the eternal within all

 

 

This part of the course is where you live what I have shown you.

 

When the way of self referral and alchemy feels fluid, more like an internal tai chi rather than a practice, it becomes so very ordinary in its magic.

 

To be one who timelessly flows with dedication and devotion to ground of being, and what is alive to each moment.

 

This is the part where you sculpt alone the way that is unique to you.

 

This is possibly the part where I as a guide may fall away or the nature of our work together changes fundamentally.
