Yoga and Deep Healing for Critical Illness
with Dale Borglum
August 23 - 25, 2019
Can the encounter with critical illness,either in one’s own body or that of another, be the inspiration to plunge beyond our usual patterns and deeply heal. Physical healing, emotional healing, spiritual healing,—the journey to wholeness takes many forms and has as many starting points as there are people who take embark upon the journey. Each of us is at a particular point on our healing path, confronting our next challenge, often without clearly knowing which of the attitudes and practices we have been using to facilitate growth in ourselves or in our clients is becoming stale, without knowing which direction we should now turn to create meaningful transformation.
In this workshop, we will draw upon the wisdom of Yoga, Tibetan Buddhism, the diagnostic message coming from the connection between stages of early childhood development and energetic patterns in the adult body, as well as the softening and the passion of heartfelt devotion. Having applied these wisdom traditions during thirty five years of being a guide to the dying, a very clear and practical paradigm for the healing path has become apparent to me. Healing occurs through direct contact with the Sacred, through realization of our true nature. There are no shortcuts, but certainly not taking unnecessary detours nor spending time spinning our wheels can inspire us along what is often a difficult journey.
We will explore together a clear, concise and usable model of the healing process that can specifically diagnose and identify the next step that is transformational for each of us, even during crisis. Short, intensive, guided meditations will be presented in order to create a healing experience rather than an experience that is about healing. We are all caregivers and are all seekers of healing. These deeply uncertain times offer an incredible opportunity.
