I believe we learn best through our direct experience in the present moment, especially when we feel secure in a caring empathic compassionate relationship. As children we were always learning through intense immediate experiences. What we didn't know how to do was to manage our environment and to study the experiences we were having at the moment they were occurring. We had no objectivity or perspective and went ahead and made decisions about what the world was like, and made rules about how we should think, feel and behave in the world. Our muscles contracted and tightened into tension patterns that helped us to survive. Many of these physical and emotional patterns and core beliefs need updating. Because old habits of thinking, feeling and behaving are actually wired into our neuro-physiology, change is not a matter of simply making an intellectual decision to change. However, with mindful attention to your present moment felt experience,together we can discover what keeps you stuck and what is emotionally needed for you to move forward to fulfill your potential, and feel more alive.
