“Healing is about receiving Grace”
Yesterday I attended a very deepening day with Anthony (Vortex Healing teacher) in an embodiment class. The title of this email is the way he described the purpose of healing, which resonated for me. The class was phenomenal……..really, it never ceases to amaze me what Vortex Healing is doing and the depth to which it can take a class full of students in only 1 day. I reconnected with a very deep sense of stillness, of what I am. In a way, I could end this email with those words! But, for entertainment, I ask you to indulge me a little further.
I suppose what I want to say about the class is that it helped me to see my real interest in life more clearly and to understand that everything I am currently doing work-wise is an expression of that, even though on one level counselling and Vortex Healing sometimes appear to contradict one another. I realised that it is only a lack of confidence that makes me see separation where deep down I don’t experience any, and gets me thinking I should be doing things the way other people do. In a new way I recognised the particular thread that runs through my life and how this is being nurtured. I am talking about my capacity to feel Truth and the fire burning in my heart for the Divine.
I want to talk briefly about why I have been unavailable of late and to acknowledge that that may have been difficult for some of you and that you may also have been concerned about me. Between Boxing Day and Valentine’s Day, I didn’t have a single day off and before that I was also under pressure. I was dealing with a lot of difficult life dramas and I don’t say that lightly. They included needing to separate completely from my Mum, moving home twice, being stalked by a mentally ill client (Police involvement), a bad chest infection and writing the most challenging 3 essays of my life at the last minute. However, it has been a time of deep embodiment, embodying the stillness I found myself as after my ‘summer of love’ (Adya, Amma and Vortex), which then moved into dynamic stillness through these challenges. I am also now involved in some exciting work in Kent giving group therapy to footballers from the FA who are in recovery from substance misuse, using horses. Giving sessions to you has been a major highlight too, plus I got onto the Adyashanti retreat in August and am currently doing his online course ‘The Way of Liberating Insight’.
Now I am taking more time to rest and to do my practices. Therefore I am more available for sessions than I was (NB these are currently via Skype or I can come to you). Finally, I wanted to remind you about the upcoming Basic Vortex course on the 6th March – it is not too late to get on or repeat and I would highly recommend either.

Let me know how you are if you get the time,
