Upcoming events (1)
We will meet. We will do the Attunement to Fundamental Consciousness Practice. We'll check in with each other. If there is time, we will explore one of the HSP dilemmas presented during our sharing, and do practice exercises to help overcome that dilemma. We'll close with a meditation.
Last year I completed a class with Judith Blackstone, called the Realization Process, Healing Ground, https://realizationprocess.org/healing-ground/. In this class I learned many practices which I want to teach to you through this group. I experience these practices as a very deep way for us to strengthen our sensitivity and become more resilient as HSPs. I have been looking for ways to deeply support HSPs for a very long time, so I am excited to have found this work.
Here is a quote from Judith's book that fully explains the goals I have in mind for us in this group. If these goals resonate with you, this may be just the right group for you:
"Although sensitivity may cause discomfort, it is an entranceway into life’s spiritual dimension. Sensitive people sometimes try to make themselves more solid or dense, or to shut themselves off from the onslaught of stimuli in their daily lives. However, the cure for this discomfort is actually to become more sensitive and open. As you continue to develop your sensitivity, your consciousness can become so refined that it is finally the luminous transparency of fundamental consciousness, pervading the material world. When this happens, stimuli can move through this dimension of consciousness without disturbing it. As fundamental consciousness, you remain steady and open while the movement of life flows through you. This means that you can continue to become even more subtly attuned to life without being overwhelmed by the world around you.
Attunement to fundamental consciousness also helps you tolerate stimuli in your environment because it requires you to inhabit your body. When you live within your body, you have a felt sense of internal depth and wholeness. You can also feel the qualities of your being, such as your love, understanding, and power. This is an experience of actually existing, and of possessing yourself from the inside. This internal depth, wholeness, and quality of being cannot be broken. Stimuli move through it without altering it.
As your senses become refined—as you reach the subtle range of your senses—they also become unified. The vibrational nature of reality that is revealed with your subtle senses is seen/heard/touched/smelled/tasted all at once. Finally, as you realize yourself as fundamental consciousness, you have a single, direct experience of each moment. All sensory stimuli seem to emerge directly out of the pervasive empty space of your consciousness, without any effort on your part. This produces the feeling of immediacy or “nowness” that is associated with spiritual experience." - Judith Blackstone in Belonging Here: A Guide for the Spiritually Sensitive Person
