More of us are seeing how our ways of thinking, our mental models do not serve the well being of our families, organizations, communites and the web of life on our planet. The more we try to solve our problems with the same level of consciousness, the more complicated they become.
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.- Albert Einstein
More of us are ready to let go of ways that are not serving anymore. Ways that keep us blind to the deeper dimensions of life within and around us. Ways that keep us disconnected from our inner knowing, our feminine wisdom and the ways of our ancestors. More of us are ready to find new ways of living, in the service of the well being of the whole planet.
Dance of Unity is an invitation to the journey of maturity. An inner-journey from where we are, towards new worlds longing to be discovered. From the narrative of separation, the root of our sufferings, into the unknown space in-between worlds. A journey from the stories that disconnect us from our most inner truth, keeping us blind to our inter-connectedness with all life, towards new possibilities. What other worlds are waiting for us to be discovered? What else could be possible, once we realise our oneness with all life?
Aside from feeling invited, there are basic guidelines, navigational skills and practices that make the inner-journey of maturity more easeful. Dance of Unity offers safe spaces, practice grounds, to develop these capacities.
I have been curious about the inner dimension of things since early childhood. The first step I took with my toys was breaking them apart to discover what's hidden inside Later on life took me on diverse paths, teaching me different aspects of exploring and navigating the inner world. So far I have learned that my life is about:
Extending an invitation to myself and others, to discover more of the inner life. To open the inner eye, as Sufis call it Cheshme-Del; the eye of the heart.
چشم دل باز کن کآن بینی | آنچه نادیدنی است آن بینی
To collectively explore ways of navigation and guiding through the inner journeys, with playfulness and a sense of wonder. I don't approach these journeys with an expert's attitude, but more of a kitten's attitude, to be honest!
My way of guiding is based on trusting the moment, deep listening, and improvising by fusing multiple new sciences with the ancient wisdom. The sources that inspire me the most are the ways of my great grand parents, Sufi wisdom & poetry, Eshragh Philosophy, Tao, Sarah Whiteley (Subtle Arts of Conscious Evolution), Jungian psychology, quantum physics, Living Wholeness (Systemic Transformation), Amy & Arnold Mindell's Processwork, Marion Woodman (Embracing the Feminine), Robert Moore (Mature Masculine Archetypes), Spiral Dynamics & Integral Theory, Theory U, Art of Hosting, and many more... Almost forgot the main ones: Horses, Dragons & Kittens.
