To all of you who came and held the space to support our co-creating contemplative practices, thank you for doing this heroic work.
Today we explored transforming suffering with NAIL Freedom & Flow.
We tapped into Greek mythology to help us inquire into how we are like Sisyphus … especially in relation to ourselves.
Through inquiry and reflection, we shone a light into our thoughts about ourselves and how these feel in the body.
I offered a question I learned from Diane Musho Hamilton in the face of self-criticism: “What’s right with this?”, helps us recognise that like Sisyphus, we are engaging in futile efforts in an attempt to meet our needs.
Follow this reflection with the inquiry: “What do I need?” (the “I” in N-A-I.L where we inquire into our real interests). This frees us to look at more useful efforts to meet our needs such as safety, connection, and independence.
Finally, you are invited to harvest your memories of those times you did show up for yourself and develop this memory into a resource. Play with some “I AM…” statements that will help you be more resourceful and free.
May you be safe and well.
