It is only when we go to the center of our souls that we enter the 'eye of the storm', the still-point of our existence. In the rush to get an education, to make a career, create a family, obtain material success, to hurry, to do, to survive, we often don't realize that in the midst of this modern-chaotic life that we lead every day, there exists another life, an unseen life that moves like a silent river beneath a city. A place where time stands still and we experience a softly euphoric sense of awakening, the feeling of breathing and falling in love in harmony with the universe.

 

Your Natural State

 

Humans by their nature are unsatisfied, and consciousness—the ceaseless chatter within our heads—is the primary burden of humans. It’s a burden that animals, in their silent inner lives, do not have to carry. Humans cannot escape this burden, and the effort of struggling against it is in fact the cause of even greater suffering.

 

Present Moment Experience

 

Being aware of our core can awaken a feeling of intimacy with all life. Present moment experience is physical and body-based, not intellectual or theoretical. If we are not in alignment with the moment, life is a struggle. It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our body that our true presence can awaken.

Reality exists in the here and now. This is the ultimate, complete and final truth of life. All beings exist in this present moment. It is because we lose connection to reality in the endless pursuit of "conditional" happiness, that we lose awareness of our inherent, primordial natural state. Our mind wanders incessantly, but our body and senses are always in the present. To investigate our embodied experience is to investigate the living present. When we have nothing to hide, no one to impress, nothing to lose, no games left to play, no attachment to outcomes, real connection and intimacy happens.

 

The Art of Life

 

"We do not escape into philosophy, psychology, and art---We go there to restore our shattered selves into whole ones."

Anaïs Nin, In Favor of the Sensitive Man and Other Essays

 

You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book (Lady Chatterley, for instance), or you take a trip...and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.

The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

 

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

ILLUSIONS OF ULTIMATE FULFILLMENT

The idea that happiness is in the next place, next job, next adventure, million dollar fortune, or even the next partner. Until we give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where we are.

 

"The lust for comfort murders the passions of the soul."

- Kahlil Gibran

 

"Our society is very result-oriented, that’s why we are so competitive.  That’s why we are always stressed, because we are always looking at something in the distance.  If you are always looking at the top of the mountain you are climbing, you cannot be aware of the grass and flowers growing at your feet."

"We are always looking ahead, aren’t we?  And then the actual thing, the actual living, passes us by.  We are locked inside our brains, cut off from the present moment, always centered on something beyond our reach.  We are imagining this mirage of happiness, satisfaction and fulfillment which will magically appear once this and this and this happens.  But what’s happening right now is “it” and it’s the only “it” we have.  The rest is just fabrication." 

~ Tenzin Palmo

 

Reality Is Always-already the Case

The features of a phenomenon that seem to precede any perception of it are said to be "always already" present.

 

 

Waking Up

 

"Bodhi Body" Is Our Natural State

Bodhi is a Sanskrit word meaning "awakening". Bodhi Body is not a path, philosophy or belief system. It is a body-based gathering together of the “highest truth” for the recognition and penetration of pure being.

 

The Unrestricted Flow of Life Force in Your Body 

One of the good things about the pleasure of inhabiting the body — how we feel the body from within, what we now call proprioception, our sense of the body as we feel it from inside — is that it’s an inherent pleasure that doesn’t have many stories at all.

 

Alignment

 

To Thine Own Self Be True

Working with the densest aspect of your being to the most subtle, Bodhi Body sessions align your mind with your body. The integration and union of body & spirit will balance your nervous system and transform your psycho/physical patterning at the root. When you raise your vibration, all that is not in alignment will naturally leave your life.

 

 

 

Aligning W/ Gravity 

 

Sessions are intuitive and can create openings on emotional, physical and spiritual layers, depending on your intention; to support you with what is emerging for transformation. Sessions are based on Rolfing ® Structural Integration, the work of Dr. Ida Rolf. The Biodynamic Craniosacral work of Dr. William Sutherland, and Polarity Therapy, the conscious health building system of Dr. Randolph Stone. 

 

Being & Doing

Embodied alignment is the homeostatic balance between the descending gross physical and ascending subtle forces of manifest existence. An inner “line” expressed within the constant relational field of earth's gravity and the unknown infinite space of sky. The union of masculine & feminine. Our mind is the function of masculine energy and our heart is the function of feminine energy. The balance of head and heart means the balance of masculine & feminine energies in oneself.

 

“When the body comes into alignment with gravity,

it spontaneously heals itself.”

 

– Ida Rolf

Feel Your Way into Being

 

Stress, it’s not in your head, it's in your myofascial nervous system. Sympathetic/Parasympathetic nervous system homeostasis is your natural state. Feel your way into being by releasing stress patterning within your human form. The great wisdom dwells in the body, fully away from all thought. It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our body that our true presence can awaken.
