”If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are, undergoes a transformation”
I am fascinated by the capacity the body has to heal itself if the right conditions are set up for it, and the relationship between our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, breathing, movement and posture and the effects these have on us as a whole.
As individuals we are so very complex the one and all so different, but it is my belief as human beings, as a part of Nature as living organisms and part of Life we come into this world equipped and capable with what is necessary for our healing and that this includes the experience itself of having to heal, and consequently for our advancement if the right set of circumstances are set up and we listen carefully and lovingly and care to develop as human beings. It is the natural organic way of the human body, and its inherent, encoded ability to heal and seek wellness that needs our attention right now.
I have come to understand that through suffering we can learn to be honest and sincere with ourselves listen deep and if willing slowly re-discover who we really are, we find a way then …..from the inside out.
We all undergo stress, pain, existential grief, soft trauma, hard trauma, and the experience of the organism breaking down due to all this, if we can find a way to tune in to ourselves and gradually become more curious about Life and our human experience taking responsibility for our well being, with faith, I think we can begin to see and remove the obstacles that are in the way of our natural evolutionary process, break-downs become break-throughs resulting in us becoming more strong and resilient but at the same time humble and wanting to embrace life in another way and more fully.
As though by overcoming the pain and the processing through the different layers and stages of suffering we start to shift consciousness, wanting to help ourselves and others evolve, understand…..expanding our sense of self and consciously participate in our evolution.
we can only start where we are now….in a body
I have had and still having to find ways and aids to support my personal journey and I feel very grateful for all the teachers and friends in my life, who have supported and led me through many different teachings and healing, I believe not one teaching, healing alternative or therapy fits all, and we need to find what works for us…and at this moment in time, because we are constantly changing.
My main interests being in the development of consciousness through movement, and the body and on accessing the body’s innate Wisdom and capacity to heal itself has led me to train in various methods of bodywork, alternative and complimentary therapies that have worked for me and I wish to provide and share with others in the hope we all find enthusiasm for Life, Love for Nature, wellbeing and “a way home”.
