We are literally wired for it on a biological level.
It’s the unconscious driver behind our addictions as a thwarted attempt
to get it, when we don’t feel it.
It’s the substance of what gives our lives meaning, when we do.
In fact — it’s what makes the world go round.
CONNECTION is the one thing we cannot live without.
First and foremost— connection to ourselves— to the sovereign center
of our own love.
Connection to a tangible underlying presence of Love
that unfolds our lives —that’s larger than the story line of our
thoughts, emotions, sensations or perceptions.
Connection is the basis for all creative endeavors.
It’s the zero point. The alpha and the omega.
And yet— we can also unconsciously fear and avoid the
very thing we want the most.
I know first hand how difficult it can be to drop the armor — the protective strategies that keep you from simply allowing all that you are and moving towards what you most desire for yourself.
The thing is, genuine connection can only come about through being present. Present with yourself, your actual experience. With another and with
the Love that is the very ground of being.
Presence inherently asks us to be intimate. Intimacy is often conflated with sex and romance— but the intimacy I am pointing to is more essential.
It is the space where genuine transformation and integration takes place.
This is where Alchemy of the Heart comes in and the work that you and I as a group, can co-create together. This is an entirely different context — in that I am not a romantic partner, family member or friend who comes with my own bias — I am a neutral presence, solely here to support you in relaxing into and reclaiming yourself. If you are someone who has tried all kinds of techniques, therapies, plant medicines, shamanic modalities, workshops, etc— and yet, you still struggle with accessing an underlying experience of self-love, nervous system regulation and inner stability —
Transformational intimacy is often the missing ingredient.
We do not and cannot grow in isolation. For genuine transformation to take place, we need the warmth of aspiring companions also devoted to the path of opening the heart. In the safety and honesty of our shared field together we can allow the ripe and raw materials of our human experience (the base metals, aka the habitual emotional/mental reactivity & patterns of suffering) to be metabolized and integrated. As we open to an embodied intimate relatedness with ourselves, one another, nature and Life Itself.
