Whole Soul

A Biodynamic Approach

 

Offering Biodynamic Therapy and Resources, with a Biodynamic Approach which recognises

  • the functional, fluid, and cyclical nature of emotion
  •  the need to differentiate, call out and stop what interferes with this
  • an awareness that all life around us is whole too
  • that this can begin to inform us as we relate to others, build communities and respect and sustain ecosystems
come home to your essential self : experience your whole soul

Our souls reside intimately in our bodies – and when we take the time to treat them as our true and primary nature – we can come home to ourselves – and bring a new order, a living coherence, to our bodies and our world.
I am privileged to work in the field of Biodynamic Psychology which can bring us back to our most essential feelings and depth.

‘If you choose to work one to one with me, I aim to meet you in a real place of embodied experience where you can be yourself and be seen without judgement.’

What is the Nature of Soul?

From the first veil, or membrane, of ‘incarnation’ which separates an individual from the total ‘potential’ of life and all there is: to that which leaves us when we die.

A soul is the coherent, intelligent, meaningful containment and management of life energy and metabolism in relationship to the rest of life and the cosmos.

These are words and concepts, based on experience and distilled from traditions which hand on our ancestral experience, but each soul’s experience can be beyond these.

Taking responsibility for your own soul, putting into words your own wordless experience and becoming informed by traditional understandings that resonate with you, brings new definition and inspiration to the nature of Soul.

What allows a Soul to feel Whole?

When we remember or are reminded of who we really are, this simple but profound consciousness restores our ‘sacred’ nature and our bodies’ role as vessels both for and of this deeper nature.

Allowing and dedicating space and time for the caring, nurturing, nourishing, response to, and inspiration to our souls brings coherence and maturity.

With each verb simply a ‘practice’ of remembering we are already whole. And the choice of verb and method a matter of preference, and the recognition that the adverb – the way we practice – will convey the most to our soul.

Slower and less, moving us from doing to being, allowing greater and greater alignment and integration.

And the recognition and realisation of Whole Soul brings a lightness and cosmic connection which is visible across time and space.
