If you are someone who has primarily been focusing on ‘healing’ family of origin and psychological shadow work and have relative levels of integration, self-compassion and sobriety; you may inevitably come to realize that without also awakening to your 'true self' beyond your personal story there is not yet essential freedom...
For those of us who have been climbing the steps of the temple of transcendence and have indeed met the truth of our original face of innocence and holy purity that has no opposite —you also know that the journey is not complete if you have not yet integrated your shadow and your most personal story line into the fabric of this essential awareness.
Your 'awakening' does not automatically resolve or absolve your early developmental trauma and the false identities and habits of defense that were taken on to protect your native innocence from the inevitable mis-perceptions and mis-attunement upon your arrival into this world.
(I'm sure you have noticed by now!)
Many of us come to the natural place in our own development where it's not either or. Not spiritual or psychological. But both, actually... and more.
Add to that, without the intelligence of your wise beating heart and the wisdom of your biology, there is no real integration of anything.
To live out the freedoms of a truly integrated, healthy and authentic life that is both sovereign and relational and therefor of service to the zeitgeist and ecosystem of which we are embedded, we must find our way into the embrace of the totality of our all.
This embrace is not conceptual, nor is it a destination that we finally arrive too and we are done.
So, how do we embrace the totality of our All? What does that mean on the practical, tangible, day to day level of most intimately being human?
Rather than just answering this question, I would love to invite you to explore with me in your own living laboratory. Such that these inquiries can be deeply lived and EMBODIED in your own direct experience.
THE CORE EMBODIMENT space is the LABORATORY. It is my synthesis of living wisdom teachings spanning modern day embryology and neuroscience to ancient mystery school practices. Bridging psycho-biological, developmental, perceptual and somatic opportunities for our moment to moment lived discovery.
It is for those who desire to cultivate a stable and yet fluid core of being as a continuum of self and service to the world.
It is for those who already live inside of the core paradox of what it is to be fully human; to dance with ones shadow and light, masculine and feminine- longings and fulfillment. To be of both earth and stars...
At last, this being human is the tender edge; the intimate frontier where all of our longings and projections come home to ones own walk in the world. Come home to ones own hands, voice, heart and embodied wisdom.
