Join our online practice community for fifteen to thirty minutes a day for a guided healing practice. The foundation is breathing and relaxation. We often practice Natural Rest and Living Inquiries. We sit together in stillness, the space of awareness. We open to kindness and self-compassion for our experience, just as it is. We integrate supports for the nervous system. We explore feeling and sensation and the mind’s process of making meaning.
.
There are skillful ways to work with thought, even when the mind is racing with anxiety or we are triggered by trauma into fight/flight/freeze. Our bodymind/nervous systems can be stressed by grief, healing from trauma and everyday life. Meeting together, practicing these powerful practices together, is transformative and healing. Join us live or when we’ve posted them on our Youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEJTxzTMjcI8gSfTOc_wcXA

LOVING OUR BODIES ~ LOVING OURSELVES
A Support Group for Women Using Self-Inquiry with Sumitra Judith Burton

Many of us find it difficult to accept and love our bodies and the more subtle parts of ourselves, just as we are. We’ve struggled from early in life with critical judgments of our bodies, minds and abilities. We are skillful at caring for others, and yet often can’t find compassion and peace for ourselves. And some of us have spent so much time caring for others (and hoping/ wanting to change others) that we’re hardly in touch with who we really are.

How, in this moment NOW, can we find acceptance and even love for ourselves — embracing our bodies and everything else about us, exactly as we are? Can we truly meet and release old patterns of shame, anxiety, depression and other stuck beliefs that often stem from earlier trauma?

Join me in an exploration of this theme, using the Living Inquiries NOW Practice, the Simple Inquiry, and other tools to help us unwind the tangled beliefs we’ve acquired throughout our lives, and which are no longer serving us. These tools are wonderfully effective for practicing Self-Inquiry – exploring what is Here Right Now in This Moment, what it seems to mean about us and how the stuck beliefs can be relaxed and released. It can be magical to see how what arises now is hooked with the past (velcroed, as Scott says) – the thoughts, feelings and sensations.

Each week we will share how self-inquiry is affecting our lives, we’ll take time to “rest” together, to practice Inquiry with various tools, and to share our current personal experiences. In this way we can become proficient at Self-Inquiry and gradually unravel our old, stuck beliefs about the different aspects of ourselves, relaxing into a more natural state of self-acceptance and compassion. As well, the community spirit that arises from such sharing can be very supportive in our healing journey.

Cost: First Meeting FREE!: $10/ week thereafter. Please join us for free your first time; newbies welcome each week!

Payment/ registration for the meetings can be made through PayPal using my email address: [email protected] (using the “family and friends” option makes sure neither of us is charged a fee). Please note with the payment that it’s for the NOW group.

Offered by: Sumitra Judith Burton* (Certified Facilitator of the Living Inquiries). (*I am called by both names: Sumitra, my Sanskrit name, pronounced Su-mee’-tra – and also Judith).

Support yourself in becoming truly available for your life. 

From a recent participant:
“It is quite breathtaking to experience you working with a group; watching and listening to your communion with who-they-really-are. You have a gift, Lisa.”

Belonging, community and connection are crucial for our well being. We come to learn about ourselves, together. For those of you who would like support in your deeper looking and/or aren’t interested in 1:1 sessions, here’s an affordable option.

Deficiency stories debilitate, demean and disempower us like nothing else. Sometimes coming from outside ourselves – through an institutional doctrine familial conditioning – but eventually winding up in our own narratives, these stories seem to solidify a separate sense of self. In an email to me Scott Kiloby shared “I see so many people want to be free but stop as soon as the trauma or core story really starts to come up. Then they run. I think it would be great idea for you to do a group, gently guiding people…”

This sense of separation is painful, and yet we often hide or pretend – or, as Scott said – run, staying separate and isolated in our pain. In this group we connect together, and we honor our stories and our trauma, and we learn how that we don’t have to pretend, hide or run. We gather to intimately connect and explore the nature of being human. We come to learn about ourselves, together. In a world where it is not always easy or safe to be vulnerable, we learn that it is possible. We gather in a safe container, where we are allowed to be exactly who we are, exactly as we are.

This bi-monthly gathering will focus on practical and experiential exercises that are specifically designed for the development of self-awareness and self love. I always facilitate a guided rest. There will be time for questions and optional sharing amongst group members. Sometimes I engage in a 1:1 facilitation while everyone else follows along silently. Other times I share ways to assist with self inquiry, or ways to heal the nervous system. Participation is always optional.There are no requirements to attend: anyone who is interested in becoming more intimate with themselves and becoming more available for their life is welcome.

We will meet for 60-75 minutes on zoom. Each call will be recorded, and yours to keep. Please contact me with questions.

You can come to one, or as many as you’d like!

For upcoming dates see the Event Calendar or the Support Group page.

Radical Recovery Monthly Interview Series

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The therapeutic program at San Patrignano, Italy is based on education and rehabilitation. The person is not considered afflicted by an “illness” and therefore, pharmacological treatments to combat drug abuse are not used. Instead physiotherapeutic and psychiatric interventions are implemented when deemed necessary, in order to treat specific individual problems.

The rehabilitation program is tailored to each resident and varies depending on the characteristics and needs of every individual. There are no rigid therapeutic steps or a defined timescale. Instead, considering the problems and demands of a radical personal change, we offer a long-term residential rehabilitation program; in fact, the minimum duration is three years. There is no cost to the residents or their families.

Learn more about San Patrignano recovery community here and be sure to watch August 24th.

 

Be sure to watch Friday August 24th
