WBF energy meditations: embodied journeys for renewing & unfolding the inner spirit:  A Zoom program with Glenn Fleisch- starting in May, 2020

Journey Home- Rabindranath Tagore
The time that my journey takes is long
and the way of it long….
One has to wander through all the
outer worlds to reach
the innermost shrine at the end.

Tao De Ching- Stephen Mitchell
When the ancient Masters said,
“If you want to be given everything,
give everything up,”
they weren’t using empty phrases.
Only in being lived by the Tao can you be truly yourself.

To come home to yourself- John O’Donohue
…May all that is unlived in you
Blossom into a future
Graced with love.

The journey- Mary Oliver
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world…

The journey- David Whyte
You are not leaving.
Even as the light fades quickly now,
you are arriving.

Return again- author unknown
Return again, return again
Return to the land of your soul.
Return to what you are. Return to who you are.
Return to where you are born and reborn again.
Return again, return again.
Return to the land of your soul.

Begin Again- Brenden Kennelly
…Though we live in a world that dreams of ending
that always seems about to give in
something that will not acknowledge conclusion
insists that we forever begin

The Way It Is- William Stafford
There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
…While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.

Every major crisis tends to stir up our most primordial energies and feelings- those associated with survival and mortality. In addition, this pandemic has necessitated a major disruption in our usual activities, habitual patterns and familiar routines. So, as we are experiencing the anxieties of this viral danger, and are taking the necessary steps for self-protection as well as protecting others, there is also a way that this situation can awaken us to transforming ourselves- to open to the currents of energy and spirit, an embodied renewal of our vital life forces that flow within and around us.

The phrase that came to me recently is: many bodies, one spirit… Every-body, each of us individually has to go through this in our own way, to trust and follow the unfolding thread of our body’s energy and inner life- and (re)find and (re)embody our truer nature. Yet as we go down into the depths of our individual body’s life and impulses, we may also contact the larger spirit that lies within us, between us and around us. It is this spirit that unites us all on a shared journey- in which we are all part of and responsible to each other in deeply felt ways. This awareness can enhance our capacity for compassion toward ourselves and others- to let the life in me touch and be touched by the life in you. This kind of touching includes yet also transcends the physical, a way of being-with one another at a deep soul level. We can help and support each other in this time of great need, to return to and reclaim our deepest bodily dispositions and gifts.

Thus we have a unique opportunity- to bring all of our energies back into the body, to hold and contain these energies, feelings, impulses in our body space, and invite them to transmute into our true, deeper nature- in alignment with Nature.

This program will use the modality of Wholebody Focusing as a vehicle for active meditations- awakening, exploring and embodying our body’s vital energy and deep feelings. The inner alchemy of embodied journeying involves a simple 3 phase WBF process. We will practice these aspects, within the dynamic of educing spirit, i.e., drawing out and bringing forth latent energies in alignment with our innermost being. We can emerge from this crisis, not only surviving it, but also using it to deepen and expand our personal, global and spiritual consciousness- to reawaken our openness to being, to free our life energies and recover the body’s natal spirit. Together we can return to life, to the aliveness of being-here in the precious gift of each moment.

Details: We will meet weekly for 2 hours. The first month of the program will be free of charge. Thereafter I will ask for a small fee, whatever you can afford- for each month. I am suggesting $100/month, but pay what you can (if anything). The format includes:

  1. Attunements, checking in, sharing our current situations, feelings, concerns;
  2. Guided WBF meditations for the whole group;
  3. Breakouts into dyads and smaller groups; and
  4. Developing a shared space for communal connection.

Two group times: Thursdays at 11 a.m. Pacific time- starting on May 7th.
Fridays at 5 p.m. Pacific time- starting on May 8th

Register: For the first month, there is no charge. Just send an email and indicate which group you plan to attend. You will receive a confirmation- and a link to the Zoom site for all meetings. You may come to as many groups as you want during this initial month-long period.

Group size: Each group will be limited to 25 participants. So if you are interested, please reply as soon as possible.

Prerequisite: Prior Focusing training/experience, including some Wholebody Focusing.
