LGBT Living Inquiries Facilitators
I’m happy to introduce you to the LGBT Living Inquiries Facilitators. These facilitators are trained in the Living Inquiries, which are the tools you see featured on this page, “Unfinding Identities.” Each of them are highly skilled and each are LGBT. You can bring anything to these facilitators and they can help you undo the Velcro Effect in it, including deficiency stories (e.g., “I’m unlovable,” “I’m unacceptable,” “I’m not safe”), beliefs around homophobia, sexuality, and gender, issues around sex addiction or other addictions, fear or anxiety-producing thoughts, and even LGBT identities themselves. Any of these can create suffering when there is a strong identification with them. These facilitators use the tools in my book, “Living Relationship,” found at www.livingrelationship.org and “Natural Rest for Addiction” (coming soon).
“For me, the Living Inquiries are a way of looking–at identity, concepts, objects and seeing –and feeling–through my assumptions and long held beliefs of what I thought I knew to be true about me, about my world, about what lies ahead in the future. The sense of separateness, “otherness,” the belief that “there’s something wrong with me” have been evaporating with LI. They’re just thoughts attached to energy–and I can’t find any of those identites when I truly stop, rest and look. When a sensation arises “telling” me I’m in danger, I can’t trust or I’m not safe, I’m aware that it’s energy I’m experiencing, not “reality.” Images from the past–being bullied, rejected, criticized, condemned–are now images and not “reality.” I experience my life with greater presence and greater awareness–and its on-going. There’s no “there” to get to–just emotions, sensations, feeling & energy velcroed to words and images waiting to be questioned.
