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!

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. 

A while back, Scott Kiloby emailed me:  “ 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 a great idea for you to do a group,  gently guiding people…”

He didn’t know that I was already doing monthly groups at the request of the participants of deepening courses I was facilitating, as well as people interested in experiencing increased well being. When the courses ended, some people would continue to come, while others would drop away. New people were always welcome.

Scott sees a need, and I love the community of groups – so I have expanded my group to two times a month on a Friday.

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 gather to intimately connect and explore the nature of being human.  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. I always facilitate a guided rest. Sometimes there are a lot of questions. Sometimes I engage in a 1:1 facilitation while everyone else follows along silently. Sometimes I teach ways to assist with self inquiry, or ways to heal the nervous system. Participation is always optional. <3

We come to learn about ourselves, together.

When we don’t know ourselves, we aren’t aware of thoughts we’re having, or our relationship to them. When we don’t know ourselves we aren’t aware of what triggers us, or even that we’re triggered. When we don’t know ourselves, we don’t know what we need or want, or what has been missing with regards to our needs and wants. When we don’t know ourselves, we don’t know what we’re feeling, or if it’s safe to feel.

When we don’t know ourselves, we become at the mercy of forces outside ourselves to take care of us because we don’t know ourselves well enough to take care of ourselves. When we don’t know ourselves, it’s like having a party and all the guests showing up with masks on. Can you imagine such a party? I’m guessing there would be very little intimacy or connection. How can we love ourselves, how can we have compassion for ourselves, if we’re disconnected from ourselves?

When we know ourselves, we are aware of our thoughts and if they have significance for us. When we know ourselves, we know our needs and wants, and how to get them met without resorting to drama or manipulation. When we know ourselves, we’re familiar with sensations, and how to connect with them in a way that feels safe.

When we know ourselves, we can develop a reservoir of inner resourcing, which empowers us and makes it possible for us to hold space for ourselves, love ourselves and offer compassion to ourselves. When we know ourselves, we no longer feel like children caught in adult bodies, but capable human beings. When we know ourselves, we are aware – we are self-aware.

It’s easy to get to know ourselves, but it takes time, and often some guidance, as we learn how to do so. For most of us, no one has helped us to really get to know ourselves. In fact, too often we’re taught and encouraged to put all our attention outwards, and we lose our own sense of self in the process.

This monthly gathering will focus on practical and experiential exercises that are specifically designed for the development of self-awareness. There will be time for questions and optional sharing amongst group members. We will meet for 60-75 minutes on Zoom. Each call will be recorded, and yours to keep.
