“As we lean into the experience of the moment – releasing our stories and gently holing our pain or desire – radical acceptance begin to unfold.
The two parts of genuine acceptance – seeing clearly and holding our experience with compassion – are as inter dependent as two wings of a great bind. Together, they enable us to fly and bee free.” Tara Brach
Last weekend I had a privilege to organize fantastic Open Floor workshop led by Rivi Diamond in Berlin and this is where this quote is coming from.
With gratitude and a deep bow for teachers from Open Floor I’m moving towards organizing the next workshop Gatway to Freedom led by Nele Vandezande – founding member of Open Floor
As a child we experience freedom of emotions. Gradually, our emotions got restricted and we learned specific ways to hold those energies. We stopped expressing our emotions and stored them in our bodies. Through the years we developed several patterns to survive (physical, mental and emotional ones). A range of complex emotions and behavior arise and restrict our freedom. We can only set ourselves free, when we recognize and change our own patterns. Emotions are energies in motion and they feed our body. They can be a gateway to our inner power and pure energy.
Freedom exist when you can be your authentic self, when you can stay present with your own feelings or those from others, been able to take emotional responsibility and staying fluid.
So we can become more resilient, discover the power of emotions and experience the freedom in our body and our life.
