A home for the unwanted within you

You want to share your joy, your happiness, and your peace with others. It is so natural to want to uplift those around you. Perhaps the greatest gift you can give to another, however, is the willingness to provide a home for the unwanted within you.

For when you offer sanctuary for your unmet grief, loneliness, hopelessness, and confusion, an attuned permission field arises in the space between, illuminating the sacred material of your unlived life. By removing the burden from the other to metabolize your emotional world for you, you are finally able see them as they are, and to love them for the first time.

Together, you discover that the surging somatic world has never been an obstacle, and that it has only ever been the path itself. And that it is only in the abandonment of present experience that suffering can take root in this world.

In the space of this clear seeing, love is revealed to be taking form at all times as a fiery holding crucible, where two hearts unfold together – neither separate nor one – but as an expression of unknown, wild creativity. It is out of this embodied wildness that all healing emerges.
