“The dark sea of awareness wants only our life experiences, not our life force.”
– Don Juan Matus
I felt I slept one night. I woke up, and 5 weeks had passed since I touched down in the US in 2017.
The memory of the beaches, the company, and the love in Sydney, lays as a backdrop to the unfolding of my current life’s events. Though distant, they hold spaces for me to fulfil my desires in service to others and in service to self. Always there, cheering me on.
I find myself emerged, temporarily, from my own dark sea of desired experiences. A time to reflect, re-collect, and receive. Of learnings that have occurred and continue to stir within my heart, within my mind, and within the One that rests in All.
As a current apprentice to the field, and to the body of work known as Marin Style NLP, the past 5 weeks in particular, symbolize the coming together of over 8 months of trainings. Of supporting students as a Teacher Assistant, and an upcoming trainer of the body work known as Marin Style NLP.
Every week, I have dedicated 3 days of 8 hour trainings to supporting students, and holding space in study groups. For both those of the foundational level and those of the masters level. In between, I have taken to the work as a student too, in the more advanced course Holographic NLP II, and the Beyond Blame & Shame course (what I consider the biggest choice point offered by Marin NLP).
In just 8 months, I have accumulated more than 400 hours of practical experience in the body of work. But more treasuredly, I have accumulated more than 400 hours of experience, in learning to respect and being in respect of other people’s learnings and experiences.
All experience is precious. Even when we don’t think it is.
The Marin Style of NLP, in its non-dogmatic, humorous ways … enables us as practitioners to know with crystalline clarity, how human beings construct and continue their precious journey of life.
We are empowered with tools to notice the brilliance that every human being demonstrates, in both their pleasant and painful aspects of life. And we invite them to feed that awareness back into their system, and choose again. We don’t make the client wrong for what is. We offer up, that what is is precious, and continues to evolve inevitably towards what’s better, always, and All-ways.
A choice. A chance.
An invitation to dance.
Humanity shares a romance.
One I can’t conceive.
I’m drawn to join their message …
To experience …
… to believe.
