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.
“I’ve done dozens of therapies but this is different – it’s a peeling away of a painful way of being in the world.” G.K.
“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.
This month, Lisa Meuser asks: “can we stop obsessing over the need to control everything around us? I don’t know, but honestly, I’m not sure we need to.” Lynn Fraser points out that we are driven to avoid the feelings caused by trauma until we learn how to feel it safely, to discharge it. Fiona Robertson examines how the belief that we should not be feeling what we are feeling is a major source of distress. Lynn Fraser goes on to investigate what happens when we do really open to how we feel while this republished interview with Scott Kiloby discusses the Living Inquiries process in depth.
