The One-Way Mirror of Personal Identity
We live our lives within intersecting webs of connection that provide an abundance of support and nourishment. And yet the limitations of personal identity may cause us to hold our individuality so tightly that we remain separate and malnourished, unable to join life’s dynamic flow. In this session, we will explore how our “I” engages the world and protects its self-other boundaries, and how we can soften towards greater inclusivity—within ourselves and towards others. We ask the questions: Can we receive what is there and allow it to support our expansion and growth? Can we support the growth of others to enhance the environment we share?
The Sacred Mirror
When we deepen our capacity to speak and listen from the openness of our hearts we become able to truly receive the other person as they are. This process of receiving is incredibly profound because it asks the “I” to soften, open, and include more and more of what is there, whether the breath, another person, inner experience, life itself. This deep inclusion and the progressive lightening of the personal identity enable us to be with one another as sacred mirrors, clear and transparent, celebrating and sharing our essential nature.
