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 (and btw Who Are We?)
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 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.

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: FREE! Please join us; 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).

Please email me with any questions: [email protected]. I am happy to offer a free online chat, if you have other questions. You are also welcome to visit my website: www.awakeningfreedom.org.

We provide professional facilitation to support and educate all family members about everyone’s role in addiction. Our online group program is not simply learning about ideas and terminology. We integrate a sophisticated family systems approach with a weekly practice group which enables the whole family to change. The chances of a newly sober family member remaining symptom-free is exponentially increased if the whole family is involved in treatment and engaging in new behaviors. Addiction is a family affair and everyone benefits from learning and growth.

In order to become a more functional sober family and support sobriety for the long-term, families benefit from not only learning the theory behind what makes family’s function better, but also learning about the anxiety that motivates their helping behavior. By integrating role play, family systems theory, breathing practices (to strengthen the nervous system) and the Living Inquiries we get at the root of habitual behavior that underlies the addictive family patterns.

It is only a safe human being who can humbly know their true nature. In this way, we can be in the world, whilst being of Love.

Belonging, community, connection and a healthy nervous system are crucial for our well-being. We gather to become more intimate with, and more available for, our life.

For those who would like support in their journey, here’s an affordable option.These gatherings are sacred spaces where everyone is welcome. People going through their Dark Night of the Soul experiences, people who have had awakenings and want community, people struggling in their life in various ways, and/or people simply wanting connection along their journey are likely to find home in these gatherings.

Safety is important. Our bodies, our spirits, and our psyches function with more well-being when safety is known from within.We live in a culture that often disempowers and creates stress – and doesn’t teach us how to feel safe from within. Our culture teaches us to find safety in people, places, and in superficial doings and things. But it doesn’t teach us sustainable, empowering safety from the inside out.

Without this knowing, we often don’t know how to cope with being in an overwhelming world, or how to recover from traumatic experiences. We have forgotten that safety is possible, or maybe we’ve never known safety. Many of us have developed post-traumatic stress as a result.

We can learn. We can learn to slowly and gently know that safety is here. We can safely get to know safety.We come together to find safety in our experiences, to discover that we are safe – even when we have trauma or loud core stories.

In this group we honor our experiences and we learn how that we don’t have to pretend or hide – or run. We gather to intimately connect and explore the nature of being human. We gather in a safe container, where we are allowed to be exactly who we are, exactly as we are.Through slow, simple experiential practices, we realize profound safety is here in our actual experience, in ways we hadn’t been able to see.

All are welcome here regardless of political affiliation, sexual orientation, race, gender or background. You are important, and appreciated, whoever you are.

Please note: days and times have changed!
April 7th at 1:30pm and April 28th at 4:30pm EST

From past participants:

Lisa is like a cocoon for expansion and love. I really love working with her. She walks her talk and creates a space for acceptance and non-judgment and I’m better able to accept and not judge myself and others. My heart has opened in my work with her. So grateful.

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.

You represent what Adyashanti talks about:  “A safe place for the world to come and rest.” You are that safe, benign presence in the world.

I have listened to the recording many times since our gathering. It continues to support me.

Gatherings focus on practical and experiential exercises that are specifically designed for the development of self-awareness, self-love, safety and a healthy nervous system. 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.

Upcoming dates:
To Be Announced.

You can come to one, or come to many, or come to all!  We will meet for 60-75 minutes on zoom. Each call will be recorded, and yours to keep.

Investment: Sliding scale what you can afford: $10- $25 per gathering. To sign up please send PayPal to [email protected], subject line “Gathering” along with your email address so I can send you a link.  No one turned away due to insufficient funds. Minimum required 4. Maximum is 15 people.
