Late last spring I began a 5 month study in the Integrative Nurse, Life Coaching Program. It blends the Art & Science of Integrative (Holistic) Nursing with the modality of Life Coaching. As part of the course work, I did 60 hours of ‘practice’ life coaching. It was quite interesting to be so fresh from my own personal exploration of Shadows, wounds, patterns, catalyst’s and connection.
I am observing a powerful common thread of experience and patterns. In the last six months over and over I find the ‘language’ of my personal experience translates into many different life situations for many different people. What I will create out of all of this remains to be seen… Even by me. Although I know it will most likely be creating an entirely new retreat(s) and 'package' it with individual sessions with participants, before and after the retreat.
After churning through the Shadows of a lifetime, or in other words, the Shadows of my past. I am dedicating the next six months to be-with-me. Today. Now. Fully present with simply my/Self.
I am asking the questions:
What do I have the desire to create?
What will the next expression of my dharma (purpose/service) be?
Is this (looking around me) my life now?
How am I going to answer those questions? By creating a great deal of space in my life. First by saying ‘not now’ to any projects, collaborations or new creations. Then… Greywolff Dancing is going walking…
Soon I leave for 5 weeks at my second hOMe of Kauai. I will walk and swim in the ocean and write and increase my daily meditation and share time with Beloved friends and nurture my Spirit. Then I return to Portland for 5 weeks to tend my hOMe and do some late winter gardening.
Then I leave for 2 months and a 550 mile walk on The Camino de Frances.
7 weeks to do nothing but walk. My intent? To find/remember/create/surrender to: The inherent rhythm of my own precious HeartBeat. I begin April first at St Jean Pied-de-Port, France and intend to complete on the full moon in May at the ocean at Finisterre, Spain. The Way calls…
I am not disappearing for the next 6 months. While this is a solo Journey, part of my dharma is to share my experience. I intend to wake up this blog and write, write, write. There is so much seeking expression through me… I simply need to find my voice… My own unique stride. Heart-Open-Wide!!!
You are lovingly invited along…
