In the Tensegrity Medicine training, we start the training by educating ourselves about the physical form, how to identify patterns, how to interview, getting to understand the person in front of our eyes. Not from a superficial or even just a physical level, but from the layers and veils that may be blocking them from existing in their own magnificence. We then learn assessments that help tap into those subtle and sometime not so subtle signs that are showing us the cracks/clues to the incongruity that is existing between the personality/ego and the soul. We learn skillful means to help the individual identify and see for themselves the stagnation patterns that have developed. Those patterns that were created as ways to ‘protect’ the soul, but are usually now outdated and are not serving the individual in their own expansive growth. The lifestyle training empowers people to learn that it can be another way, that there is another way to live that is more congruent with their soul’s purpose.
This deep transformative work requires that we are aware of our own ways of being. It invites us to recognize our old ways of being that are no longer serving us. It requires that we put away all of the sharp-edged toys that are based in fear, such as resentment, judgement, self criticism, pessimism, gossip, lack of worthiness. It requires that our emotions are felt. Some have felt so scary, so daunting that we have submerged them deep and have covered them with compensatory strategies as a way to not have to feel them again. It requires a willingness to allow expansion in our own physical bodies and psyches to allow core issues to come to the surface. It requires that we are willing to be excavators of our own lives, examining the coping skills, judgements, manipulations, addictions, escapist tendencies (just to name a few) in order to find the jewels that have been present but hidden by our fear.
This group has been created as a means to empower each other in building a community that is a safe container of support and resources, one where we can all be witness to surrendering and expansion. We allow ourselves time, space, and community to support our own divinity.
It is only when we are willing to feel, see, experience, that we transmute. This is what we do with our work. The role of the practitioner is to lead the client into this space of compassion, caring, and support, letting them know the way out of pain and suffering is through the ‘muck’. Holding their hand and witnessing it is the juice of our work, but it takes an understanding of ourselves to get there. It takes a warriorship of sorts to have experienced this for ourselves first before leading people down that similar path.
