Give yourself the Gift of Experience.
By being clear and mindful in our own lives we create a space that can help you open forgotten doors and access a lifetime of experience.
You are already wise. We can help you use your own wisdom.
By the age of 38 I had travelled all over the world. I was engaged in a loving relationship and had just retired from managing a successful Hong Kong based research firm. People saw me as healthy, affable, and fortunate, living a comfortable, charmed life, full of accomplishment and affection.
Nobody seemed to notice how hysterical I felt, and how terrified I had been almost all of my life. Everyone in my life was an outsider. Very few people could ‘see’ me, and those that did, I shunned instinctively. I had learnt, as a matter of survival, how to ‘lock away’ difficult emotions and sensations. It’s easy to see why: As a expatriate child arriving in a different world every few years, I became accustomed to adapting to different climates, cultures, cuisines, and cliques. A very good skill if you have a secure ‘base’ to build upon. From my outwardly successful parents who never felt secure enough to work through their own uncertain and insecure childhoods I inherited the ability to function without a core sense of Self. I had learned how to live comfortably in Hell.
I had become an Actor who had forgotten he was acting.
Three years ago my journey of recovery began; I spent every minute of every day communicating and negotiating with A Loving Life Force – what some people call the godhead – which I had spent my whole life denying, out of Fear. All of my time and energy went into this journey; all extraneous activities were discarded. I let go of addictions, acquaintances, anything that did not serve my ascension to a higher state of Grace and Being. I had the constant love and attention of my Guide as my support. Without our mutual commitment and engagement none of the extraordinary changes that I underwent would have been possible. Not many people have the time, resources, passion, or guidance to undertake this type of transformation; this Journey I was granted. I feel I was blessed with this Gift because my need was greater than others. I was too smart, too strong willed and too accustomed to my trauma to go through what many other people experience effortlessly by living within nourishing and loving relationships. I had to unlock myself before these relationships could even begin. What I learnt during this period of solitude and transformation – how to evolve our reality – is what I will be sharing with you.
“If you are divided from your body you are also divided from the body of the world, which then appears to be other than you or separate from you, rather than the LIVING CONTINUUM to which you belong. Philip Shepherd, New Self, New World.
“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. “Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does.” They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.”
― Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited 1958.
