I just wanted to say a huge “THANK YOU!” to everyone who participated in our second Heartbeat weekend workshop at Mana Retreat Centre last weekend. I am overwhelmed by the beauty and magnificence of each of you and am still buzzing from the whole experience. I am always moved by the incredible magic that happens in a workshop as we witness ourselves and each other unfurling, layer upon layer, gradually revealing and magnifying the essence of who we truly are. Feeling so much gratitude in this moment for every opportunity to be with you in this rich way.
I stumbled upon this beautiful quote today by David Hunter which speaks eloquently of this alchemical process:
“Each time we truly bear witness to something as a human being—a tree, a bird, an animal, the small miracle of a fern unfolding or a dragonfly on the back of our hand—we also, because humans carry the impulse of the divine, give something back to whatever it is we are witnessing. And not only to that particular entity, but to the undivided whole of which it is a part. It is the divine recognition of these entities, that sacred interaction of Love, Lover, Beloved, Knower, Known, Knowing, which bestows life upon all things, including us. Whether we call it dependent co-arising or the breath of the Divine, it is the place where our consciousness (Divine consciousness if we choose it to be) moves freely between the inner and the outer worlds and has an effect in both. As Rumi said, we are all doorways.” ~David Hunter
This is what it was like for me being in the workshop with each of you.
Thank you for being incredible doorways into the infinite.
And for your generosity in co-creating the co-arising.
with love & deep gratitude
