The word passion comes from the Greek pascho, and the Latin passio which means to suffer or that for which you are willing to suffer,
for what you believe in.
Do you believe in yourself or want to?
My passion is to help you do so.
Passion arises from your gut. It arises from what the Japanese call the Hara!
It arise from what Lorca called “the Duende”!
It arises from what the Chinese call the Dan Tien.
It arises from what I see as our unresolved/ unloved Past Pains.
What you experience viscerally is what is vital to you.
Your values & visions are viscersally validated in your unconscious actions.
So few of us are able to face our pains be they past or present.
We feel shame, fear, worry and guilt deep in our gut, our unconscious made conscious when we have an upset stomach or IBS and try to hide from it and others, who -in reality are going through their own pains- from knowing it. The gut is now known to be our “Second Brain”. The Japanese believe, as science is now showing, our best decisions are made from our “Gut Feelings”.
We both know and grow from our gut.
Interestingly, as the lotus grows out of the mud and coal is turned into diamonds, we must, out of our fears, our pain, our chrysalis transform ourselves if we have any hope of making real rooted and sustainable change. Sustainability is due to being able to recycle our waste our undesired, our unwanted aspects. We must take root in "all" of who we are to produce fruit.
Nietzsche says, “If the trees branches are to reach to the heavens its roots must reach to hell!”
also- “Be careful in casting out your demons, lest you cast out the best part of yourself.”
We deny the other side of ourselves that is really in need of light and love.
We cast out societies alcoholics, addicts and criminals all of which are, as Jung showed “aspects of ourselves” we manage to keep under wraps. Jesus spent most of his time with them and said they may reach the Kingdom of Heaven even before his Apostles. The reality is, all that separates the “us from them” is a little better functioning Neo-Cortex, which is just a little stress and low blood sugar away from a lapse, they call a relapse. Hence the saying “forgive for they know not what they do”- but thanks to neurophysiology, we know why and how to work with it in ourselves and them. How great would we be if we really did what we could do for what we consider the least" of us who in reality are us?
Kahlil Gibran says, “What is evil but good tortured by it’s own hunger and thirst?
When good hungers it seeks food even in dark caves & when thirsty it drinks even of dead waters!”
There are vast riches and wealth untold within you waiting to be mirrored and experienced uninhibited and unhindered by sickness in the manifest world.
My passion is to help you see and understand we are all, in some way addicts, in some way seeking sobriety from our attachments as Buddha said, -even and especially to our pain- that will set you free to move to our next stage of success, progress and ultimate happiness. As you progress from stage to stage, state to state of improvement, you experience progressively less suffering and more joy. It is a never-ending process and path and it can always get better if you try and trust.
My Passion is to walk this path with you…
To help you see and be better than the best you can be and help others to do the same.
My Passion is to provide you with an empowering practice to allow you to move past your past pains, shame, guilt and fears, to confidently work through the difficulties that you will inevitably face as part of your growth, to take a stand and substantiate yourself without needing to seek strength from a substance.
You will then be empowered to positively transform your trauma, tragedy and pain and with them yourself, your life and the lives of those around you.
My Passion is to see you enjoying all the Progress, Success, Love & Happiness you deserve and were born for.
Blessings to you,
