Welcome to the Living Inquiries. We are glad you’ve found your way to us. The Inquiries are an intimate and fully embodied exploration of both our felt experience and our beliefs. The Inquiries invite us to discover what has previously remained hidden or unconscious, allowing an unraveling of thoughts and feelings which can bring a new-found sense of freedom. Whatever your life circumstances and whatever challenges you face, here are the broad brushstrokes of our invitation to you.
The Living Inquiries are transformational. Move beyond endlessly trying to fix yourself. Learn a simple process that unravels the belief systems and conditioning that seem to define you. Find out who you are by discovering what you’re not. Find your innate capacity to be okay (even when you don’t feel okay).
Honor and embrace your experience. Listen deeply to your mind and body, and become gently and honestly present. Integrate your abandoned, neglected or rejected parts as you gradually learn to love yourself. Tenderly hold your wounds and negative self-beliefs, beyond judgement and shame. Discover the natural spaciousness in which resistance and effort relax. Experience the relief of ending the war against yourself.
Connect deeply. Connect with the deep wisdom of your body and strengthen your capacity to trust its guidance. Connect with your heart and reveal your authentic self. Connect with others in this open-hearted and inclusive community.
Discover the liberation of simply being. Discover the gift of resting with whatever is here, just as it is. Discover a deep trust in life, however it is unfolding. Experience the sheer aliveness of being here, just as you are, unencumbered by the past or future.
If our invitation resonates with you, take your time to explore these pages further. You’ll find more on the what and how of the Inquiries here, and details on who we are here. You can read, watch and listen here. You’re also very welcome to contact us.

“The Living Inquiries enable us to chip away the false, hardened places that conceal the evidence of our bare and fundamental nature.” H.M.P.
In Listening Beyond Ourselves, Lisa Meuser describes when “a virus stopped me in my tracks. I was midway through my day when I started to feel “invaded.” I power-housed through, as is typical for me.” Only to discover that it was“time to stop trying to push myself into feeling better”,and to surrender to the ‘wisdom in my system”. There was something sobering about lying in a bed for hours every day, knowing that my true worth had nothing to do with my level of production or actions in the world. I had value, just by being, and I felt the truth of that through every part of my being. Read more…

This month in the spotlight:
Living Inquiries Facilitator Marcia Martin
Living Inquiries facilitator Marcia Martin interviewed by Sumitra Burton on what led her to the Living Inquiries.
Marcia shares the story of her rich and fascinating career in Behavioral Psychology working with autistic children and adults in the water with dolphins, and with people around the world with every kind of disability.
Her interest in the Living Inquiries began when she met Scott Kiloby at a SAND Conference where she asked him a question about an issue with a family member. Scott responded by asking about her own suffering. Marcia then became trained as a facilitator and has used the Living Inquiries for unravelling her personal conditioning, as well as for facilitating sessions with others since 2013.
