There is nothing more powerful than a moment of Presence.
Or a moment of attention towards your own experience — just the way it is or how it arises in a moment.
That is what the core of our practice is — Be Here Now, however you are, and present to whatever is arising in your experience — with Tenderness
Easier said than done at times ? and what I am noticing in our interactions in programs and private sessions is that two areas of our work together need more clarification and strengthening in your practice.
One is the process of Inquiry and understanding why this “Is it Ok?” question is so important, and so significant to our ability to Be Here and grow in Trust.
And the other is how crucial it is to differentiate between thoughts, feelings, emotions and sensations.
We need to be able to really focus on sensations when Past is present and when it affects our Nervous Systems and brains and ultimately our ability to Be Here.
It is also very interesting to know experientially that when our Nervous System is in good regulation we can much more easily know what Trust is, have an embodied experience of Trust and go much more easily into Trusting Presence.
The World is even more challenging these days with Covid, politics and economy and yet it also presents us with a remarkable invitation and a truly unique opportunity for Freedom.
I keep inviting you as well to take advantage of this opportunity and in this upcoming 3-week program by deepening and strengthening your Inquiry skills and Trust.
