Expressing Jealousy, by Emily

Living in community is most definitely the fast track to undoing the ego. (Ir a español) I have been here in Chapala for three weeks now and the shifts have been profound. There is nowhere for the ego to hide here, as when something is held back we all feel it, the discomfort of which is too unbearable. The only relief comes from exposing the thoughts and feelings that are present. Frances has been reminding us that our thoughts are not personal, that they are just ‘the’ thoughts and not specific to any of us. This has really started to become an experience for me, as what seems to be up for...

Mexican Adventure, by Sue

On Sunday I went to a Charreada, a Mexican horse event of skill and courage. (Ir a español) I was invited by Jose who was judging the event and my goodness didn’t he look the part when he arrived to pick me up.! Beautiful  coordinated  outfit, shiny boots, tooled belt and sombrero to top it off! I was in another world! A world of generosity, chivalry and openness as well as laughter and honesty! The world of the charro or Mexican cowboy. We arrived at the venue along with two of Jose’s friends and Jose laid out his Mexican blanket for me to sit on in the tiered metal seats. It began with a...

Emotional Authenticity, with Frances and Anje

An emotion arises first in an abstract way, then the mind looks to the past to find a reason for it. (Ir a español) But what if you didn’t come to any conclusion about what the feeling means, if you were to withdraw judgment and forgive your conclusions? The feeling doesn’t define who you are. Express it authentically! Then you can move through it and past it. Some key points from the expression sessionFrances: The emotion arises first in an abstract way, and then the mind tries to find a reason for it in the past.Anje: I labeled it “anger” and related it to the sex we saw...

Expresión – Ana Gaby

(Go to English) En la sesión de expresión de esta mañana comentaba como un día anterior había experimentado como todo es perfecto. Me había sentido incomoda toda la mañana de pensar que no quería hacer ciertas tareas que me habían indicado, así que como siempre, analizaba. ¿Porqué? ¿Porqué no quiero hacerlas? Sentía que eran muchas y yo quería tener tiempo para descansar, pero ¿Era verdad qué eran muchas?, ¿Porqué quiero descansar? Sentía que eran ideas del ego, pero aun peor no sabía como expresar que no quería hacer todo esto. Me vería muy irresponsable, floja o poco servicial. (Que...

It’s Not Personal, by Frances

In an audio by Frances, she speaks to some concerns voiced during an expression session this morning.Here are some of her ideas:Nothing I experience is personal. The same applies to you. Don’t make it a problem about yourself.Don’t judge yourself; don’t conclude; just accept what is.I don’t understand things or feelings in the middle of them. It’s perfect. So I don’t try to label it or solve anything. Clarity comes after with perspective. Share your specifics, but don’t hold on to them.I’m given this role to hold this community together, so I feel something that is not at all Frances....
