Mentoring offers an opportunity to integrate your personal practice into everyday living and into your workplace, as a teacher, therapist or coach, wherever and however you care to incorporate iRest® into your professional environment.
Drawing from my rich experience with a wide variety of people and circumstances we explore new ways to develop creative concepts and find professional strategies that work for you.
We may address questions like these:
- How do I support and integrate my deepest heart’s calling into my professional life in a practical way?
- How do I create a safe framework for clients and/or participants?
- How do I incorporate the 10 steps of iRest into my lesson planning?
- How do I structure a retreat thematically?
- What does it take to implement this valuable practice in such a way that my clients are met and welcomed exactly where they are – regardless of the socio-economic environment and/or political, religious or cultural orientation?
- How do I deal with a challenging situation?
- How do I adapt meditative self-exploration so that it resonates with a person’s ability to integrate an experience?
Private / Individual Sessions
In individual sessions we dive into specific topics or issues as they arise for you.
The Practice of Welcoming – based on the iRest® Meditation developed by Richard Miller, PhD- offers a creative approach inspired by the teachings of the Non-Dual Tradition, Tantra Yoga, Kashmir Shaivism, mindfulness practice, the latest findings in neurobiology, and last but not least my own life experience on and off the mat.
Foremost you are in charge – you are the driver of this magic bus, and your needs, concerns and desires are determining the route and the velocity we travel together.
I may ask you questions intended to deepen, unpack, and integrate your experience. The invitation is to become aware of and then describe what you are feeling: sensations, emotions, thoughts, images, memories, core beliefs. We sit together in shared presence with the intention to support the unfolding of your life path. Together we are the sanctuary of welcoming.
We may not have experienced being accompanied by another person in a safe holding environment as we discover who we are. We may never have experienced a “sacred mirror” to reflect to us the validity and value of our existence. We may not have been welcomed in the expression of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aliveness.
Co-meditation means attentively and compassionately meeting the contents of consciousness and then gently unwrapping them like a gift that is waiting here. By not interpreting, fixing or changing – without even transforming the experience in any way – we are meeting the raw, unfiltered moment exactly as it is.
We are letting it be.
It is exciting and very touching to witness how transformation and integration happens spontaneously when we turn toward that which seems to be holding us back.
The flow of a session is not necessarily linear. Sometimes different messengers might arise simultaneously holding different treasures to discover. This can seem a bit jumbled and chaotic at first. By staying with sensing and feeling we find that opposites not only appear at the same time but they reveal each other. The thinking mind cannot necessarily “grasp” this, because thinking is happening in an either-or universe.
Individual Sessions are done sitting or lying down, -with your eyes open or closed – as it feels safe and appropriate for you.
