“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put humpty together again!” True, but that is not the end of it, only the beginning. Something happened and Humpty Dumpty started Falling Back Upwards, all over again!
This is my story, and I suspect a very familiar story. That moment when my life seemed to totally fall apart, literally, I was lying on a hospital floor after a back operation. I lay there, totally helpless, laughing my head off! That was the moment of revelation. I thought to myself, this is so ridiculous there has to be a better way!
Evidently there was, and I guess I had to ask first. This is a story of my journey that emerged.
Wholebody focusing could be described as a step-by-step discovery process exploring the resources that we have deep within us, to inform us on who or what we are and what we need to complete ourselves. Something in us knows it is all there, always has been, just waiting to be discovered. We try so hard until we stop, and then something happens that is beyond us, like a gift or grace; in my own experience are these words “when a part of me feels heard, it awakens to its own healing.”
Karen Whalen and Kevin McEvenue began this remarkable Focusing Partnership many years ago and created a whole new Wholebody Focusing experience, “Exploring the Transformative Power of the Body Wisdom.”
Heartfelt connection is an exploration of a sense of Me that emerges into a sense of We, enabling us to listen to one another, making room for you, because there is space in me to do so. It is the ability to listen to one another without a loss of me, being pulled into the life of you or visa versa. It is not an either-or but a both-together.
When we feel that heartfelt connection happening between us conversation seems to flow back and forth spontaneously. I suddenly feel more me, an expanded sense of me that wants to share something more with you. Our two worlds seem to complement one another, rather than compete, in ways that are creative and informative.
