Zen Mindfulness & Sei Ki Touch for Healing the Soul : April-July 2017

Once again, I will offering an interpretation of Zen Mindfulness & Sei Ki in Luxembourg, which is close to my heart. I ran this workshop twice in 2016 and both were beautiful weekends so I am very happy to be repeating it.

These workshops are for people who for whatever reason are experiencing deep inner emotional pain, perhaps even the quiet feeling of hopelessness and despair.

It can be a very lonely place, keeping up all the smiles for the outside world. It has nothing to do with outer success or difficulty that people can see.

We are all different. For some people, emotional pain may be experienced in a dramatic way, possibly associated with terrible traumas or tragedies in one's life.

For others, it may be simply be a quiet feeling of emptiness and meaninglessness, a kind of disconnection from one's soul, from who you are. We can get so used to living like this, that over the years, we almost forget that life can be any different. But something inside does know and it hurts.

A short story : 20 years ago I watched a film called the Shawshank Redemption. Afterwards on walking home in the dark, I found that I was really upset. Something inside me had woken up to the fact that I felt just like the lead character, imprisoned for life, yet innocent. He dug his way out of a penitentiary with a spoon kept hidden in a bible over many, many years and then made his way to a beach on the Pacific coast of Mexico to spend the rest of his life repairing old boats, a kind of spiritual end to his journey.

It is a really interesting metaphorical story. In my case I ended up standing on a hill top above Guildford, England in the rain that night, very emotionally upset, and then not wanting to return to my flat, walked through the night to the cathedral which I could see in the distance. It was a kind of wake up experience to the painful reality of my life.

There is another image that may convey the feeling: of sitting on a stool in the middle of a small room with walls on all sides and no apparent opening to leave through. No way out. No where to go.

But there is a way, which is to stop being your lower self and become who you really are... your heart can find a way out.

Workshop Structure & Content

I am offering a 3 weekend sequence of workshops spread over 3 months. There is the opportunity for those who wish, to attend all 3 weekends as a course with personal exploration of the meditations and practices in between. I would encourage this. Real change takes time and is not easy, but the support of a group can make a lot of difference.

At the same time, I am happy for people to just attend one or two of the weekends if this is all you can manage. You will still take a lot from the experience.

Each day of the workshops will have a different focus, details below in the information on each weekend.

I hope not to talk too much beyond guiding the session activity and participating in discussions. This will be a transformative workshop, not a theoretical teaching.

I will let our silence and simple shared heart resonance say whatever needs to be said. There will be plenty of meditative sitting, but you can still be comfortable on a cushion or chair.

At times, I will demonstrate Sei Ki Touch within the group, and then we will quietly help each other with it, as this is how we heal ourselves, through giving absolutely everything we have to help another. Love doesn't know one direction!

Important Note

I have to be clear and honest. This is not a therapy group. We cannot attend hoping for some miracle change, and we are all responsible for ourselves, so if you need or are likely to need emotional support then please ensure you have access to a counsellor with the appropriate background to help you.

What we are doing though, is following a very old tradition. In the end, deep pain and despair are simply a doorway on to the Zen / spiritual path.

When life gives you this kind of experience, it can either cause great suffering which it generally does, or it can be the opening for a beautiful life journey, and I hope to offer people the opportunity for the latter.

And about me: I'm not any kind of psychology professional. I just know this topic really well, as it was the beginning of my own spiritual journey 25 years ago and I've been exploring it ever since. It is my life.

We will use Zen to help us find our Wisdom and Sei Ki Touch at its deepest level, to draw out our Compassion, open our hearts and teach us about relating to others more fully.

I hope not to talk too much in a lecture fashion beyond guiding the session activity, this will a transformative workshop, not a theoretical teaching. From experience, we as a group will create the dialogue!

At other times, I will let our silence and simple shared heart resonance say whatever needs to be said. There will be plenty of meditative sitting, but you can still be comfortable on a cushion or a chair.

Throughout the weekend, I will share the Sei Ki within the group, and then we will quietly help each other with it, as this is how we heal ourselves, through giving absolutely everything we have to help another. Love doesn't know one direction!

Important Note

We cannot attend hoping for some miracle change, and we are all responsible for ourselves, so if you need or are likely to need emotional support then please ensure you have access to a counsellor with the appropriate background to help you.

And about me:

I am not a specialist, just a sensitive human being, so we will explore the topic together and I will bring what I can from my own experience of using my Zen & Mindfulness to cope with meeting the 'other'!.
