Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me. Albert Schweitzer
We are living in an invisible pandemic much greater than Covid, one that threatens all life on this planet. It has been evolving for thousands of years, passed down from one generation to the next. It is the plague of separation! There is no individual cure because healing can only come from mutuality, the sharing of feelings, sensations, and actions between people in an environment of safety, respect, and authenticity. This fragmentation from wholeness can only be healed in conscious relationship with others.
From birth we mammals learn, grow, and evolve through co-regulation with our caregivers, but if they didn’t get the soothing, nurturing, and connection they needed for healthy interaction, they pass on this sense of separation, aloneness, and not belonging to us. This often leaves us feeling broken, flawed, and unworthy of love. But, we can learn to re-parent ourselves in healthy communion with others by creating safe environments that are committed to truthfulness, openness, and mutual respect.
Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another. Thomas Merton
I have been amazed at the speed and depth of personal and collective healing that has been occurring in our six month Immersion and Integration programs. Many of you have asked for a shorter program, so we have developed a 7-week community Coaching and Healing program designed to connect, reflect and deepen our connection with ourselves and others. This program starts next Tuesday and we hope you will join us. Click here to find out more about this interactive, experiential, and very affordable program.
With love and Blessings, Michael & the Well of Light Team PS. For those of you who want to deepen your meditation practice we will be holding another Deep Dive Meditation Retreat on June 12-13 (ask for a discount for doing both programs together - a powerful combination)
