Over the May 6-8 weekend Pat and I, along with 24 others, participated in a Divine Sexuality workshop led by Sagewalker. … The purpose of this blog entry is to share some of that experience.
This possible glimpse of enlightenment I tasted occurred near the end of an April 14-17, 2016 workshop. It was Module 3 of the 2015/16 Sacred Dimensions of the Pathwork Program, created by Erena Bramos and staged at Sevenoaks Retreat Center near Charlottesville, Virginia.
“Gary, a dog would be ‘good for you.’”
… something had happened in the Monday session that shifted me. And I realized that I could not truly express exactly what had shifted or how things now were different from before. I was in an “I’m OK” feeling space.
…my inquiry turned to experiencing pleasure in the NOW, loving what is in the NOW, no matter what the “what is” is that I am to love.
I went on to share with Pat that I was in reaction to her input to me and that I felt “brutalized.”
…my feelings were opposite to Pat’s feelings, but both of us could be in our own feelings AND be curious about and supportive of the other’s feelings.
… I received the message from within to quiet my mind and feel the deep longing for the warmth of connection that lives within my soul.
…the following inquiry arose: Can I come to value the warmth of my connection with Pat?
I noticed a whiff of fear arise as I contemplated letting go of my mind and dropping into the abyss of the unknown – the abyss of my body and what my body holds in the way of unconscious knowing and feeling.
