When I think of the language we have in common as students of Marion Woodman , I remember the words she used to bring us together at the start of a morning session in our intensives.
Often she asked us to think about what are the opposite feelings we are dancing with as we began the day
And what is the still point in that dance?
I can talk to anyone who was in those rooms and we most likely can remember the feeling of sitting in contemplation at the start of class pondering that question.
I often didn't know how to respond but the more she repeated the question the easier it became to identify what I was holding at that moment in both hands,.. often it was joy and terror knowing another day of exploration and deep inner work would take me into an inner landscape I hardly had language for,
tonight as I write this blog I can feel that exact tremor I had whenever I was asked
AND what is the still point?
Its many years later and now I am deeply familiar wit this concept as a living reality.,
This begins the conversation,
I am curious if others who trained in BSR have thoughts?
