“Our Self Behind Ourself Concealed”
Separating Soul From Ego

In this unprecedented era of babyboomers becoming octogenarians, most of us are being forced to look at ourselves as children, parents, as grandparents— all on the same d ay, perhaps in the same room. The so-called "sandwiched generation" is carrying the heaviest burden of projection. How do we keep a clear eye on our own identity, our own soul's freedom and develoPMent when we are compelled to view ourselves and be viewed through so many different lenses at the same time? How do we attend to our own hopes, fulfil our responsibilities, grow into new values without making sacrifices that undermine our own maturing into our own inner marriage? This lecture will focus on releasing the Being that we are each born to be. Mindful of the cultural shadow as well as the personal shadow, we will explore "ourself behind ourself concealed" in present family arrangements.

Exploring Who “I Am”

Working with ideas and images from the Friday evening lecture we will work with dreams and new questions coming from participants around the issue of finding our own reality. Through gentle bodywork we will explore the sense of Presence that invites us to open ourselves. Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a blanket for gently bodywork. Participants of the workshop are encouraged to attend the Friday evening lecture.
