The Adventure of the Present Moment

Hey, everybody!

Just a quick check-in, from the road. I'm in the Atlanta airport -- bit of a wait -- after my week with my oldest son and two grandsons. The subject is life on this earth: doing what we can, and being blessed by all kinds of wonderful experiences -- like a chance to make conscious and heal old times, using one of the most incredible allies we could ever have: the Holotropic perspective. So, forgive my wonderings. I feel so grateful for my life in this moment, and I…

Building Bridges to the Holotropic Experience

Hey, everybody!

I'm in Georgia this weekend, visiting with my oldest son, Ason, and my two grandsons, Dallin and Kellin. I'm happy. Just wanted to pick up where we left off last week -- about translating perinatal language -- and share a bit about some work we have been doing in Australia, and will also soon be doing in the US.

For the past two years, and again later this year, we have been presenting one-day workshops in different cities -- either something along the…

Identical Wombtwin Survivor

Mirrors of an Identical Wombtwin Survivor

This work in progress is dedicated to still suffering identical wombtwin survivors, who may well identify with the meaning of surviving life, yet experience inner turmoil the likes of which inhibits living life to the fullest. I honor the necessary defense systems that protected us throughout our journeys, yet hopefully through sharing the other side of denial, we can embark on this healing quest together without guilt,…

Conscious Conception

My Journey into Conscious Conception

What a Journey, I ... as a sperm entity, traveling towards the ovum to what seemed the longest marathon distance imaginable. Traveling to reach the human form through Conception into life. Journeying with millions of sperm travelers each in their own way bidding for existence. Each through their own volition; exploring different avenues. Some never to be seen again others lost in purpose, others abandoning the journey, others destroyed by toxic…

Soul Journey Home

My Journey into the Cosmic Void

I initially experienced the life force energy of an earthly colored large three inch reptilian snake with gentle coursing undulating body motions which my body took on experientially, along my spine and in each successive purging and cleansing of my chakra centers… All body sensations to the core of my being left my body. There was no body aches or pain, no emotional baggage, no trauma nor mind chatter and no fear whatsoever.

As that was taking… Continue

EE - Coex

Este relato trata de contar, lo más explícitamente posible mi proceso de decubrinmiento y salida de un COEX de abandono que me llevó alrededor de 3 años de proceso.

Durante mi formación como facilitador, muchas veces tuve experiencias relacionadas con hechos y recuerdos de momentos en los que me sentí solo, abandonado y en situaciones y experiencias que movían ese tipo de energía.

Siempre los vivía como situaciones y experiencias aisladas y sin conexión entre ellas, a la vez…

Gifts Of Balance

Gifts of Balance

Deep within this Wounded Child
This Lonely Child, who stands
Arms Outstretched, Crying into
The Despairing Empty Nights,
Lies a flicker of Hope
A flame of Knowing, of Believing
In the Power of Spirit
Great Spirit bringing forth Healing.

The Winters of my Pain tells me
It has been too long, all this Suffering

Spiritual Story or A Spiritual Path

A Spiritual Story or A Spiritual Path…

Last Wednesday at dusk in late August... I was sitting in my favorite recliner rocking chair on my newly built veranda... along with my pure bread hunter apricot poodle on my lap, listening to classical music… I happen to raise my eyes to observe a beautiful fully mature male deer coming to a stop across the main rural highway which is about one hundred feet directly across my driveway…

Dissolving Resentments GB

Dissolving Resentments

Resentments for me, are the result of anger and or rage, indignation or injury, often suppressed, or inappropriately expressed, fueled by events, which occurred in the past. My futile attempts at Evolving… included my re-enacting the hurts over and over again in the present, expecting a different result.

By keeping afresh in my mind and body the painful words that were said to me or deeds and actions that were…

Adoptee Spiritual Quest

A Spiritual Quest

Oh! Great Spirit have me “Whole”
Whilst gathering the fragmented pieces that lay
Dormant, on the shattered fringes of my soul
Help me bring them together as you once did
In the cosmic unity of my mother’s womb

Oh! Great Spirit, grant me the courage and
Integrity to define those aspects of me that are truly
My own, not roles assigned or imprints…

Expanding the Language of the Perinatal

Hey, everybody!

Over the years many of us have discussed the implications of modifying Holotropic terminology to meet the needs of special populations. So I'd like to share a little about this issue. At certification last October, the group was digging in for the traditional marathon perinatal show. Only of course now the format is a tad different. Since nobody can recreate Stan's original eight to twelve hour -- or as was the case in the very first certifications, sometimes sixteen…

EE - Gracias a la vida !

Este relato que quiero compartir, data del año 1992. Sé que fué una EE porque luego de haberla vivido, la tenia escondida en un rinconcito de mi corazón bien oculta para que nadie pensara que me habia vuelto loca una semana, hasta que una amiga me prestó el libro "Emergencias Espirituales" (actualmente agotado pero sería super si alguien lo conserva ya que habia unas imágenes maravillosas en él que representaban muchas de mis visiones) y me sentí totalmente acompañada, ¡estan hablando…

The Spiritual Lineage Paradox in Holotropic Breathwork

I'd like to say a few words about lineage, and how I see it in terms of Holotropic Breathwork. Lineage appears to be part of most of the world spiritual traditions. I'm not trying to make a case for HB being a spiritual tradition, in the same manner as the other recognized traditions. However, its spiritual power is evident, and everyone I've talked to who uses it systematically reports that no matter what reason they began their HB journey, the method eventually took them into the sacred or… Continue
