The Heart of Healing: Connection, Calmness & Consciousness
Our deepest nature, beyond all concepts of self and other, beyond right-doing and wrong-doing, beyond all duality, is naturally open and infinitely connected. Warm, secure care giving early in life gives us the psychoneurobiologic framework to manifest our natural abilities for loving relationships and mindfulness. Developing such capacities provides the ground to realize our true nature. Without a secure attachment system, no amount of spiritual emergence or moments of awakening can fully integrate and permeate our relationships. This case study demonstrates how gaining secure attachment in the psychotherapeutic relationship through developing connection, calmness and consciousness, can foster our full awakening.
