Opening those channels and entering that deeper territory takes more than our conscious intention. Those who attend workshops or seek healing are longing for integration between the different parts of themselves. We can assist them best by helping them find their own answers from deep within – far more than providing answers or intellectual information. We can create a safe context for self-exploration and healing and guide them into a state of consciousness conducive to building a new relationship between conscious and unconscious mind. This state of consciousness is often referred to as trance.
Therapists and workshop leaders enter the realm of creativity together with clients and students to support their transformation as they gain insight, wisdom, and integration. Yet the guide into the realm of transformative experience participates as well. Learning to guide this process aligns you with an evolutionary current of development that can heal not only each individual on that path, but ripples out to the community and world in which we live.
