About the Event
I invite you to register now for our Hope Awareness Gathering Sunday 5th November 7 pm via Zoom.
The purpose of these gatherings is to provide a space where we can form conscious community and learn in a practical way how we can weave together trauma healing and spirituality.
The theme for this Gathering is-
Unveiling Our Innate Purity
We will introduce a profound system of trauma healing known as Internal Family Systems,
which shows us how to view our inner world as a collection of subpersonalities or 'parts' which all carry their own narratives, feelings and needs.
These parts are said to be fundamentally pure and innocent, yet take on burdens as a result of trauma which either carry our deepest pain or protect ourselves from going anywhere near this pain.
By befriending these parts and becoming aware of what they are really needing, we can help them transform and let go of burdens they may have been carrying for many years.
Format for this Gathering -
- Voluntary Check in
- Internal Family Systems Discussion and Questions
- Meditation to explore our 'Innate Purity' using visualization of white light and befriend challenging parts of ourselves
- Discuss Meeting up in person in nature to offer compassionate support to each other
Our next Gathering will focus on introducing and preparing formally for antenna listening buddies.
So, what is unique about these gatherings?
Firstly I am eager to spread the message that modern trauma therapies can be crafted as an offering which can benefit everyone and deepen our understanding of our living reality. This includes insights about how the brain processes trauma, as well as principles that come from a variety of therapies - especially Mindful Self-Compassion, Comprehensive Resource Model, and the Internal Family Systems Model. I believe that when these principles are widely known, we will be better equipped not just to heal our own trauma but also heal the unresolved collective trauma which causes so much suffering on this planet.
Second, I am passionate about sharing the Kalachakra model of spirituality as a fully inclusive system which naturally embraces psychology, modern science and all forms of spirituality in the world today. Originating over 1000 years ago in Tibet, Kalachakra uniquely describes the universe in terms of three interconnected levels – the outer universe and the inner universe of our minds and bodies, which both evolve and change with time, and the timeless, fully embodied enlightened reality which underlies both of these (our 'Fundamental Goodness'). When our personal and collective trauma is healed, this Fundamental Goodness is unveiled.
In weaving together these two streams – spirituality and trauma healing - I sincerely pray that we may make a small but significant contribution to not only our own future wellbeing, but the wellbeing of our wider community and our planet.
