Growing towards what really matters
What is the growth of the soul to me?
it is fulfilling the yearning That lives deep in my heart
IT IS ADDRESSING THE UNIQUE DEVELOPMENTAL NEED REFLECTED IN my CURRENT LIFE SITUATION AND my CURRENT PSYCHO-SOMATIC ENERGY BODY.
IT IS THE JOURNEY OF ANSWERING THE QUESTION:
HOW DO I USE THIS MOMENT TO MAKE DEEPER CONTACT WITH WHAT TRULY MATTERS?
I currently know it as 12 things, subject to change and revision:
- Discovering what truly matters
- Purifying the heart through the truthful word
- Feeling primary emotions
- Integreating the Body | mind | psuke
- Observing faithfully
- Reporting honestly
- Living creatively
- Investigating and taking responsibility for our own shadow
- Embracing vulnerability
- Resting and Letting go
- De-tensioning the nervous system
- Growing Godwards, Lovewards and Truthwards
When it comes to this soul work, this soul school, as my friend Josh calls it, I am both student and teacher. I am a flawed man, like any other, with some wisdom to share and plenty of work still to do. But the great thing is, it is a natural process.
We grow, like the trees, out of the darkness, and towards the light.
WANT TO GET SOME SUPPORT WITH YOUR SOUL GROWTH?
If my words resonate with you, feel free to get in touch with me. I am a certified gestalt therapist with a background in education and 40 years of life experience under my belt. I offer consulting/support sessions in what I call Natural Movement Therapy and Education. Basically it means supporting the latent, intuitive wisdom of the body|mind to naturally emerge. I take an eclectic approach, which means using the best from variety of systems: Christianity, Spending time in Nature, Gestalt therapy, somatic intelligence, prayer, emotional processes and creative expression. I work in the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane region of Australia.
An old teacher of mine at Interior Design school once said to us,
“To be successful in this business, you need to live, breathe, eat and shit this work”.
I quit the course that week.
I don’t know if i’ll ever be successful in business but there is a kind of work I do live, breathe, eat and shit.
That work is simply and nakedly, the growth of my soul.
