Embodiment Through Writing

IMG_4290

A deepening course: Embodiment and Writing.

Embodiment is about being fully present with the “here and now” of life. In this Embodiment Deeping Course we’ll be taking an honest look into how we experience life, and the impact this has on us. We’ll inquire into thoughts, images, sensations—and taking a look at what seems true, and then experiencing what’s actually true. Particularly important, we’ll be spending a lot of time exploring the bodily sensations and energies that arise.

Writing has been a profound medium in my embodiment journey and I love to share it with others. There is no skill requirement- anyone who can type or write longhand is welcome! We will engage in various writing exercises throughout the course that will help you to have access into your direct experiences in new and profound ways. All writings will be kept private unless you wish to share.

This course will utilize the Living Inquiries, the N.O.W. practice, natural rest, breathing techniques, and some gentle body movement to explore your various experiences- depression, anxiety, compulsions, identities, body contractions, debilitating thoughts and/or memories and more. You will also become familiar with the nervous system, vigilance centers, the fight-flight-freeze responses, and learn about ways to support and be kind and loving with your self. Lastly, you will get to experience the different inquiries first hand, and be able to practice skills for learning how to self-inquire.

 

Dates of the Course:
Nov 5, 19, 26: 12-2pm EST

This is an on-line course. I use zoom, which is similar to Skype. You can attend from anywhere in the world using a phone, iPad type of device, or computer!

On top of the 3 group sessions, you will receive a total of six individual facilitations: Four with Senior Facilitator Trainer Lisa Meuser and two facilitations with Certified Living Inquiries facilitators.

Women Journey Together

img_8041

A deepening course, Just for women.
Women often request “women’s only” deepening courses. This makes sense because culture impacts the genders differently and sometimes it makes sense to create a distinct container especially built to honor these differences. We will give space to explore expressions which are often considered “taboo” in culture: anger, shame, guilt, sadness, pleasure and the various ways these expressions show up: mothering, how we were parented, sex/sexuality, relationship, career, body image, compulsions/addictions, etc.  We will use this shared space for participants to share, explore, listen and be present with each other. Verbal participation in the group is strictly optional.

 

The Living Inquiries and Natural Rest are helpful in creating a lived experience of safety. We will be exploring our experiences by utilizing the Living Inquiries, the N.O.W. practice, natural rest, breathing techniques, and body movement. We will engage in certain exercises so that you will be able to safety engage in the bounty of aliveness that flows through your being. We will also explore and become familiar with the nervous system, our vigilance centers, the fight flight freeze response, and ways to support and be kind and loving with our selves. Through honing our skills of attention, you will learn to able to be with your experiences rather then turn away from them. Lastly, you will practice skills for learning how to self-inquire. This will truly be a room of our own, to discover our journeys as women.

I’m reclaiming my heart #41

IMG_7612

 

I saw the words

“broken heart”

and I died a little more.

Fuck.

I started to crumble.

I’m reclaiming my heart.

*

A split second of

resisting

exhaustion

shame.

I pushed pause.

I’m reclaiming my heart.

*

The fuck-you’s

counter the fuck me’s.

Anger.

Spite.

Pain.

I’m reclaiming my heart.

*

The bait took me there,

I return here.

Unrest.

Uncertainty.

Into my beloved’s arms: acceptance.

I’m reclaiming my heart.

*

She softens, she widens

the pain persists.

Nowhere to hide,

what a relief

the pearl revealed.

I’m reclaiming my heart.

*

I see the words

“broken heart”

and I live a little more.

The fishing line

loosens and I’m free, again.

I’m reclaiming my heart.
