journey loosely describes the counseling and healing work
that I do. But, I used it in the beginning, years ago,for
want of a more appropriate description. As a counsel there
and soul insight, for the practice of presence, a spiritual
path to incorporate into one's daily life. It is that over
used term of being in the moment. which means embracing what
is in the moment whether it feels good or not. This is what
it means to be in the moment. Something you practice but
don't necessarily succeed at. Being in the moment is often
being aware of when you in fact are not or can not be in
the moment that is presenting itself. Practice is a good
word here for it implies neither good nor bad, success or
failure, just practice.
in this sense there is counseling going on before and after
the actual session. For the work itself, the soul dreaming
session, the word counseling is incorrect. In spite
of the fact that a lot of counseling goes on. But that counseling
is to establish the groundwork, to facilitate the reclaiming
inspiration of one's disowned soul. It's counseling in the development
of presence so that the musical notes of the soul will not
drift off into space in the face of some new traumatic event. It
is also an empowerment so that one can reclaim themselves on
basis simply by practicing presence (see section, "More About:
core of the Work is I believe beyond opinion and interpretation.
It's preverbal, even though I'm verbalizing. Now there's a paradox
and a contradiction. Read on if you wish to be further confused.
One of the principal components of the development of presence is
becoming. And this is precisely what I am doing when I am working
with someone. I become the mythic landscape of their soul. I let
the tension, contraction, battle live in my own body. I let it speak
through my body and voice. I am a resonator of their repressed inner
life. I cry, I scream, I yell, I collapse under the weight of suppression.
I become a living holographic mirror of the soul's pathology which
is played out in dynamic images reflective of myth, past lives,
fairy tales, childhood traumas. There are no limitations or structure.
Other than I usually contact the place of contraction by feeling
the emotional images, allow the drama to unfold and complete itself
with the intention for the spiral to unwind and expand and give
the individual the experience of non-separation and connectedness.
the session is done I may very well give you some of my impressions
and insights from having lived this experience through with
you. But no matter what point of view the dream is seen from
it is one of many and it will ultimately escape the definitions
of the mind. Rather than interpret the dream, let the dream
interpret you. Become it and thereby understand it. So much
of the actual counsel is about how to experience the session
as it is happening and the time that follows so that it can
work its magic on you.
