The primary practice of Together To Get Her is to become conscious that we are connected to all of life in each moment. This connection is the source of freedom, true happiness and also unspeakable pain. When embracing being a vessel of the universal, rather than resisting it or trying to escape it, the pain and discomfort that underlies our experience transforms into strength, love and compassion. Many ailments are mistreated because the bond every human has with the planet and other beings is ignored. By cultivating our subjective experience, of who we are in relation with the big picture, with awareness and careful decision-making, we can begin to understand and resolve the sadness, anxiety, trauma and addiction, which often accompany being a caring human being, and be at peace.
Ailments are invitations for us to discover and harmonize with our true nature. Physical, emotional and mental diseases are nature’s way of beckoning us towards peace and happiness. It is hard to align our intentions, our desires and our actions, to free ourselves from habits that do not reflect what we are devoted to, but life is very forgiving. We all need the help of others, and we encounter one another like notes in a song just at the right time. The tricky part is learning to read the score which is silent and often gets ignored because the present moment is not always melodious. The healing work I offer is encouragement to dedicate time and space to inner work. Each person, in each moment, is perfectly equipped with a heart to guide the way. With that compass can be deciphered what is called for by your journey. Biography work is a phenomenological approach to opening oneself to the richness of that journey and also the gentle, tender innate wisdom within, which I combine with more traditional psychotherapies and practices.
It comes down to how we are with constant change.
