Laughing and Reflecting

I am laughing at the absurdity of investing my energy in trying to co-create a relationship with someone and then allowing myself to be drained and depleted, experience rejection, neglect, emotional scarcity and other painful states in the process of it… when I KNOW, from experience, that putting only a tenth of that energy...

Love as an Inside Job

When feeling the lack of reciprocity in a relationship and my confused and wounded inner child reaches her sticky little hands to grasp for a beloved’s love, care or attention my impersonal self takes her little hands, gently cleaning them while speaking of our wholeness to her.  She calls in the part who learned...

Completion

Attachment to depth attracted shallowness,  Attachment to the inner attracted the outer. Preference for emotional and spiritual intimacy attracted mere mental and physical intimacy.  Preference and attachment to anything creates the experience of the contrast and thereby cultivates suffering.

Psychological Patriarchy

“In my work with men and women I distinguish between political patriarchy, which is the sexism that has been the target of most feminist writing, and what I term psychological patriarchy. Psychological patriarchy goes beyond the relationship between actual men and women- as individuals or as a class. Psychological patriarchy is the dynamic between...

The Oppressor in Me

The most challenging experience I have had to date is facing, knowing and meeting the oppressor and victimizer in me. Meeting this archetype, expressing consciously and unconsciously through me, with curiosity, facing the judgements and attachments I observe arising in me when engaging with her or being identified with her, feeling the emotional responses...

I held an unconscious misunderstanding of what it means to give of ourselves and our gifts to life for most of...
