~The Monthly Theme

Monthly Theme for August and September

Last week I was a super hero to my kids, for a few minutes.

Visiting my mom, my kids and I asked her to read a book about a boy with a very long name -- so long that it nearly costs him his life. 21 syllables of name, starting with "Tikki Tikki Tembo," the name of the book.

All day we tried to say the name but only remembered the beginning. We mostly just had fun making up our own rhyming versions in the car, the pool, the garden, at dinner.

Instead of reading the book again, I slept on it.  In the morning the name rose by itself to my mouth.

Shining with amazement, my kids asked me, "How did you do it? You have super powers!"

Of course research has already proven the superpowers of rest in learning, memory, response time, and immunity.

But what is this resting thing?

What is actually going on when we feel that restful feeling, whether we are on a hammock, a bike, or meditation cushions?

And what is restful for you? What makes us feel safe enough to drop out of habit-energy and into another mind? To be absorbed yet open. Not self-absorbed, not distracted.

Last October an old friend asked me what I do exactly. "Is it vipassana?" she asked.

I searched for words to describe what happens on deep rest retreats: "Well, tuning to the aliveness in experience as a step towards deep meditation, and along the way also a kind of...uh, somatic experiencing--"
"Oh, I do somatic experiencing, too," she said. I could hear the sound of a trademark.
"No, no, not a technique, just a natural feeling into nonverbal intelligence that can guide us well."

It turns out that there is a field called Somatic Experiencing and trauma healing, and it backs up our beloved deep rest with decades of neurology and human experience.

The lively Peter Levine and others discovered that many disorders are symptoms of shock or "trauma response," no matter what caused the shock-- surgery, accident, violence, surprise....

And just like on retreat, to dissolve the defenses, they suggest we can lower the "alarm system," meet what hurts with tenderness, yet not focus exclusively on the pain, stay tuned in, and even place hands on body in ways similar to Jin Shin Jyutsu!

I am glad that what has emerged independently on deep rest retreats has found its way to many other meditation circles through trauma work. This simple and graceful approach demystifies and untangles many of the challenges that can arise on the path.

In meditation through deep rest, this kind of healing often seems to happen as if by itself, more as a by-product of spiritual deepening.

People's practice and lives make the super heroic, tectonic shift from problem-oriented to life-oriented, with room for pain and healing, but within a bigger picture of aliveness, spaciousness and mystery.

How did you do that?

Tikki Tikki Tembo no sa rembo chari bari ruchi pip peri pembo!

~ Wild Walking in Spain

Beka shares thoughts on the Wild Nature Walk she did at Dharmaloca last June, while looking forward to another Walk coming up this October. 

The Serra Monstant is, for me, quite a formidable terrain. It is the mountain range where Dharmaloca can be found, nestled quite naturally into the slopes there. The climate for one such English person is not so easy to adjust to, let alone the unknown beings that live In that place. Who will peep their head around the corner of that rocky outcrop? How much more heat can I take? 

Bear in mind that this walk was in, apparently, the hottest month of the Spanish year -- June. It would serve anyone better to walk there in Spring or Autumn. But June it was. 

I walked alone at first, in order to plan the camping trip. On that first morning I saw a fox. He/she made no sound and reminded me so eloquently how to move through the landscape without disturbing anything around. Whilst heaving myself over the steepest climb of the whole range I was beckoned on by a pair of rascally ravens. They danced and swooped me through that canyon. Without them I might still be there, wondering if I could continue. 

And at the very highest point I was gifted with a feather, black and broken from, no doubt, one of those blessed ravens. Calling my name, calling me on.

A few days later a small group of us walked gently through those rocky slopes and allowed the humanness to be left behind, allowed the layers of our senses to become more alive, for our human-animal selves to become a part of the world we were in. Smells, sounds, sights, even tastes were awoken. So much to discover, so many plants, colours, foot prints to be curious about. The trail at times was hard, sometimes we would lose sight of the path, like it would seem to disappear, then reappear, only to disappear once again. Using a kind of sixth sense at that stage is all we had available to us. And this is where the juice is. This is where we drop below the mind and really use those forgotten abilities that all human-animals have. Time to get into the more-than-human realm of re-membering our natural state of being.

Our camping place welcomed us with a sweetness of fresh water pouring down it's side flank and more green vegetation than we had seen for the whole 5 hour walk up and over the crest of the Serra. A simple meal and good rest meant we were ready for the descent the following morning. But not before a blind-fold exercise to bring us more deeply into our senses and our connection to the environment we were now inhabiting.

The second day brought ever more heat with the sun beating down on our slowing bodies and yet the walk back to Dharmaloca brought more gifts -- a golden eagle blessed the way for Gemma and I. Soon, we could shower, take off our shoes, eat good food, share rich stories.

From the rich stories of Mary Oliver's 'Long Life': "Imagine what it would be like, to lounge on the high ledge of submission and pure wonder. Nature, all around us, is our manifest exemplar. Not from the fox, or the leaf, or the drop of rain will you ever hear doubt or argument."

Gemma and Beka will be offering another walk into our wild nature the 12-16 October 2014, near Dharmaloca. For more info: beka(@)beingnature.co.uk

~Empowered Mothering

Trishna shares her thoughts on being a mother.

It doesn't sit quite right in me to call myself a single mother. Strong mother, wise mother, capable mother, sometimes impatient and angry mother, super-mama, but most of all…empowered mother. Ah yes, that feels better. Empowered. 

I manage to do (most!) of the jobs that two parents do, by myself, but also supported by a nurturing and loving outer network of family, friends, dogs, trees, lots of raw fruit and vegetables, superfoods and India to name but a few. 

Two sisters who are the best aunties imaginable. An enthusiastic brother-in-law to throw the kids around when they need it (and when what I really need isn't more playtime, but is to have a little nap!). Friends and dogs who babysit so that I can get out once in a while…even if it is just parent's evening! Mum who feeds the kids with so much amazing food and love. Dad, who tells them silly stories. Friends who do all the bits of DIY that I can't do (or generally sorting out the bits of DIY that I get wrong). And so many more people in this web of friend-family around us. There's the African saying "It takes a village to raise a child,"; I see why. All these great and inspirational people around me add their own beauty into the mix that is my children, showing them different skills, encouraging them to do different things, and connecting with their spirits in different ways.

My kids are great company, and just being with them, although we have our moments (as all parents do), can be a support in itself; Their interesting and hilarious insights. Listening in on their conversations between themselves ("Akashi, if you want to you can look at my bum…but you don’t have to."). Their eagerness to learn, often exemplified in an endless stream of thought-provoking questions ("Where did language come from?")

And then there is the inner support network. The work I do to help me stay present. Meditation, maybe a few yoga asanas, breathing awareness -- being gently aware of this breath and this body -- as I lie down to sleep and when I wake up. Singing. Dancing. Camping. Exercise. Green smoothies and clean living. Daily meditation to help me to stay patient. I've done a fair few vipassana retreats and maintain that they are the biggest support to my mothering, because I've found that when I’m messy inside, then things are harder outside. And when I'm not so messy inside, however hard it gets outside, I can stay on top through work and belief in myself, and in the wisdom of life. 

Sometimes I feel like things are too hard. I just want a whole two days to do nothing! I don't want to make lunchboxes for tomorrow. I don't want to fold up more clothes. Oh sugar, forgot to put the bins out (cue running downstairs and outside with the bin men staring at me in my pink spotty pajamas). How am I supposed to fit all these things into a week? How am I supposed to fit all these things into a day?!

And at other times, I feel like the whole universe is conspiring to help me. Somehow, my children and I manifest everything that we need… Oh I feel so blessed! To live and be present in these fleeting moments of beauty and bliss with my children. Daily lessons of impermanence. Playing, laughing, creating…

Of course it isn't all beauty and bliss... Motherhood has brought out the best and the worst in me. I try not to feel regret/guilt/negativity about the way I've interacted…or should I call it outer-acted (or reacted) with my kids sometimes. Getting angry at them when really I'm annoyed with somebody else, being short with them solely because I'm tired, not being present with them, and only listening superficially to what they're telling me. 

Yes, darkness also dwells in my relationship with my children, which I am aware of and I accept, and…yes I embrace it! I'm in the process of learning that it's ok to be that person sometimes. I'm not going to push myself to an impossible ideal of a perfect mother that exists in my head as a result of media influences. I'm going to be me. An empowered mother, perfect as I am, with all my faults, flaws, inconsistencies and issues. Perfect as I am, with all my strength, beauty and prowess. Perfect as I am, with all the support of my ancestors, who have loved and lived, who struggled for my children and I to be where we are today, and who learnt a lot in the process.

I am an empowered mother, and I can do anything. Really, I surprise myself with the feats I manage to pull off. Another  5 month trip around India with the kids in tow. Studying and passing exams. Whipping up nutritious meals. Managing to keep on top of the housework. These things all feel like small miracles, and I must remember to feel gratitude for these miracles.
I specialise in turning dreams into reality. 

I have a choice to look at this cup as half empty or half full. There are two sides of every coin. The grass is greener on the other side.

As my children are growing older (now 7 and 9 years old), I’m sometimes amazed by their understanding and empathy. They teach me when I’m open to it.

Empowered isn't always powerful for me. It is more…trying to stay open. Accepting this reality, here and now. Open to the whole spectrum of feelings and emotions that enter at any given moment, which brings with it vulnerability. Sometimes I have to admit to myself that I’m not as hard and tough and I imagine myself to be. It’s easier for me to stay open when life flows effortlessly, however what is more important, and, where I learn the most, is staying open when things start falling apart. Sometimes I feel low -- I stay open. Sometimes I feel sad -- I stay open. Sometimes my heart aches -- I stay open. Stay here. Stay with it. See what happens. Let life unfold. I believe that things can never go wrong, they just may not turn out quite as expected. I stay open, and listen to all the wisdom that my heart lovingly offers to me. 

And then it passes. Whatever "it" was…the uncomfortable feelings. The "There's nothing wrong but I just don’t feel quite right." Just as everything passes, I see that this, too, passes. Thank-you again, impermanance, for your lessons of various flavours!

Here I am, touching the beauty of the present moment once again, dancing around the living room with the kids to bhangra and garba music, planning adventures, big and small, at the drop of a hat, having "special breaths" with my daughter at bedtime (both breathing together, feeling the beauty of ourselves and each other, for a few breaths as she's falling asleep -- often the best part of my day!), having a "jump up into your arms" hug from my son and fully feeling the love. Here I am, touching the beauty of the present, sat silently by a river with tears of joy in my eyes. Here I am, touching the beauty of my presence, feeling full of life, feeling the warmth of my smile, loving myself, these children, all (or most of!) these people, these animals, this land with an open heart.

I stay in touch with my mantras, some of which are woven into this piece of writing. The ones that have intuitively appeared, either in the lyrics or poems that I write, through my meditations, through my heart-speak, or the ones that have been delivered by the mouths of others (but feel like they were meant just for me!)

"I can turn dreams into reality, I can manifest all that we need."
"You’re on the path of Dharma…nothing can go wrong!" -- Thanks Goenka-ji.
"Everything happens for a reason."
"Sit, sit…just sit." -- Pema Chodron

I do what I can to feed my soul, as my happiness correlates with my children’s happiness. I try to teach them, through the example I give, and through the conversations we have, about living a compassionate, loving, ethical life, enjoying the beauty of what each moment brings us, with the strength, wisdom and clarity to deal with the not-so-easy moments.

I am empowered by the experiential knowledge that I can do anything that I want to.

Promises Nothing

Beka wrote this poem while at Dharmaloca this past June.

"Promises Nothing"

Somewhere deep inside
a song waits to be sung.
For now, time to be with 
this good earth,
this good water,
these smiles, these smells,
Wild flowers and solar showers.

Lettuce heart grows.
Hearts let us grow,
Let us know.
Then, let it go.
Peace, even with the strong wind 
through the tunnel-valley.
Even with the sun this hot.

It happens anyway ~
the 'deep inside' song;
birds execute ego-shattering discourses
left, right and everywhere 
for those ears that dare to listen.
Already in communion with God
they are always just waiting
for us to catch up.
They belong to the sky-soaked
day-night that
promises nothing 
but change in every moment.
Promises never to be 'the sky'.
Promises to be unaccountable,
full of folly,
open to chance.

~Reflexión Mensual por Gemma
El mundo entre retiros

Queridos amigos, todos los que saltamos de retiro en retiro o dedicamos al menos algún periodo al año a retirarnos, hemos experimentado el placer de la profundidad que alcanzamos durante los retiros, dónde todo está especialmente planeado para que podamos entrar en lo profundo olvidándonos el mundo práctico o las cosas que nos asaltan en nuestra vida cotidiana.

A veces durante los retiros sentimos este placer y esta profundidad, y otras veces no lo vivimos en lo consciente o no lo notamos mucho. 

Sea como sea, muchas veces es sólo al salir de la situación de retiro que nos damos cuenta de que hemos estado en un espacio profundo, más sutil, más silencioso y fluido, y de repente nos encontramos lanzados al cruel mundo de la velocidad y la eficiencia, mientras interiormente aun flotamos en una realidad mucho más 
sensible y nos sabemos peligrosamente vulnerables.

Qué hacer?

Como sobrevivir manteniéndonos abiertos sin ahogarnos?

Merece la pena en primer lugar reconocer este estado interior más sensible y vulnerable en ves de creer que disponemos de las protecciones de siempre y asumir que deberíamos ser capaces de tragarlo todo. Merece la pena andar despacio, amarnos lo suficiente como para no involucrarnos en acciones y compromisos que nos van a catapultar hacia la ansiedad o el agobio. Buscar el contacto con la naturaleza ya hacer tiempo para estar en ella sin agenda, sin meta.

Ignorar algunas llamadas o esperar un par de días antes de responder un email que parece ser urgente, buscar nuestro propio ritmo sintiéndolo desde el corazón y regirnos por éste a pesar de la prisa alrededor, del sabernos empujados y estirados en diferentes direcciones y por diferentes personas o intereses.

Cultivar y mantener la chispa en el interior, como si se tratara de una relación amorosa que no queremos que se deshaga en la nada.

O simplemente despertarnos con la intención de dar las gracias y ofrecer lo que somos en todas direcciones, e estirarnos en la cama por la noche con la intención de conectar con aquello que da sentido a nuestra vida, escuchando profundamente, en contacto con la vibración y dormirnos así, entregándonos sin límites para navegar en el mundo de los sueños.

Y sobretodo no creer que deberíamos ser capaces de hacerlo solos y en medio del ruido del mercado. Podemos ser ayudados y acompañados por buenos amigos con quienes compartir, y podemos planear nuestro próximo retiro para reconectar con más profundidad, recomenzar de nuevo, volver al punto cero desde dónde podemos ofrecernos al mundo de nuevo, volverlo a intentar.

La llave que necesitas está dentro de ti

Este mes Hedy nos habla sobre la búsqueda de nuestras propias llaves internas.

En los momentos de dificultad, de miedo, de incertidumbre tendemos a buscar fuera de nosotros mismos. Esperamos que nos dé la llave de la solución nuestra pareja, nuestros amigos, padres, maestro, terapeutas, Dios... Desde nuestro sufrimiento nos ponemos en manos del otro para que nos guíe. 

Y mientras buscamos esta “ayuda” nos olvidamos de lo que, en el fondo, todos sabemos. La llave que necesitamos para resolver nuestra dificultad está dentro de nosotros. A veces está casi en la superficie, llamándonos desesperadamente para que le hagamos caso. A veces, se encuentra en las profundidades de nuestro ser, pidiéndonos que buceemos en nuestro interior para encontrarla. 

La próxima vez que te encuentres buscando fuera, te invito a que recuerdes lo que ya sabes. Pide que te acompañen, que te cuiden, que te respeten y que te apoyen en tu búsqueda hacia tu propia llave. Y sobre todo, acompáñate, cuídate, respétate, apóyate en tu búsqueda hacia tu propia llave. Y aunque no la encuentres enseguida no desesperes, disfruta de la búsqueda, porque en ella puedes encontrar mucho más de lo que esperabas.
