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.
