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.

The Exhaustion of Inner Oppression

2nd September 2020

By Lisa Meuser. Here is the second piece in a series of blog posts exploring discomfort and disconnection.   I have been noticing in clients, in myself, and perhaps everywhere: tension (and discomfort) goes up when a sense of connection to well-being goes down.  It’s not the tension or push-pull that’s… Read more…

A Journey of Connecting with Discomfort

1st August 2020

By Lisa Meuser. There’s something huge going on right now that is freaking people out around the globe, within almost every person: discomfort.  Whether it’s Covid 19, or the great awakening with regards to racism, or something in between, this is a time of uncertainty – and for most humans,… Read more…

Scum Of The Earth!

24th June 2020

By Sumitra Burton.   My first thought upon waking when I was sick recently was, SCUM OF THE EARTH! It had been a way-too-short sleep in a series of similar nights due to being ill with a sinus infection, and I felt wretched. The words “scum of the earth” seemed… Read more…

By Lisa Meuser. “Transform yourself to transform the world…” Grace Lee Boggs   What’s going on? Across the world, cities are coming alive with awakenings.

On The Range Of Our Inner Experience

23rd May 2020

By Fiona Robertson.   I listened to a podcast recently about people who have no mind’s eye (a condition called aphantasia) and so do not see any visual imagery, including memories. Some of the people featured also have no mind’s ear and cannot imagine sensory experiences that aren’t happening. As… Read more…

How Full Is Your Well?

23rd May 2020

By Lisa Meuser. Almost daily, I journey with clients who are beating themselves up during these Covid-19 times for not being more productive, so I thought I’d write a little about it. I think it’s worthwhile to consider why we might not be as productive as we think we should… Read more…
