Event Description: In this gathering, we will look at the many ways that our egos have helped us to survive.
When we get to know the ego better, then we will see just what a friend it has been, albeit a wee bit unskilful at times.
It helped us to cope rather than deal with our pain. And maybe that was right for that time.
We will explore together how the unconscious can be seduced into consciousness and how the openness of the sacred heart in each of us can widen into the universe, to embrace our shadows.
I believe that many tribal beliefs have kept us from the joy of living and we will create a safe space together to create our own Credos that will support rather than suppress our sacred lives.
Phyllida loves sharing about the dear old ego-mind known as Earthmind in Gaelic.
The so-called negative or unwanted emotions such as fear, rage, jealousy, or grief are, she believes, all looking for our compassionate love.
When we can open the heart in us to our own shadows and the so-called dark side a great alchemy takes place and the heart in us widens into the universal heart.
The richness of this integral heart embraces all without judgement and the ego rests in peace.
Phyllida has done many retreats that include the opening of our own hearts, firstly into ourselves, and then through the eyes of love, and she believes that we can reach out in love to the whole world without judgement.
