Being and its Creative Expression
In the course of our lives many energies arise within us, including sadness, anger, joy, and creative vitality. From a Nondual view, all of these energies are the rich and multifaceted expressions of a single unified ground. In this presentation, through a case study and discussion, we will explore the ways in which contact with the Ground of Being transforms and liberates these energies. The result is the healthy expression of powerful archetypal energies through the client and therapist, and the fuller flowering of each one's humanity. As the blocks to these energies get resolved through the therapeutic relationship, the experience of absolute reality and its relative human expression become increasingly undivided.
