Allowing Susurrus

Several participants in the New Bo Books-CSPS Labyrinth Walk have shared with me individually their experiences and one took time to write about her’s.  And, always I am humbled and gratified that people connect so deeply and share compassionately.

At certain places some felt a stirring or “knew” or heard an answer. Others felt tears come without really understanding the source, but were “OK” with the tears.  “It is a safe place.” The peace that others felt calmed the memories of past events.

The teamwork that the five of us used warms me.  Humor, flexibility, support…each of us moving in a similar direction but at different places along the path.  Compatible. Just a gentle flow.

One participant wrote: “Thank you so much for the labyrinth workshop at New Bo Books/CSPS on Sunday evening.  It was better than I could have hoped.  I walked a labyrinth several years ago in Minnesota, but we were not prepared, so I spent muy walk listening to the cricks in my neck and wondering what to expect. This time, thanks to your presentation(s) and my mind set, I was ready to listen. Since walking the labyrinth I have found myself frequently in tears.  One of the things I heard on Sunday was, “I am strong enough to do the thing I was born to do.”  I am hoping that “thing” is writing, but now I must find within myself the courage to write.  Sometimes the mere thought of it makes me break down.  But, I ‘m on my way.  Thank you for setting me into motion!…My journey is just beginning.”

This is so heartwarming – that we five chose to create and hold space and allow a safe place for people to interact with their higher selves, to discern the answers within.  And, then follow through.  An honor to hold open a door, crack a window and allow.

This is where I am to “be.”
