Compassionate Inquiry Online Support Group
With the Covid Global Pandemic, all in person events have been suspended and will resume when it is safe to do so.
In alignment with the pandemic lock down, I am offering a new online Compassionate Inquiry support group.
We gather every Tuesday night from 9-10:30 p.m. EST. We've been gathering since the end of March and it's going really well.
Participants have been able to get in touch with how they're feeling and release those emotions in our safe and supportive space which I create in ceremony with an opening and closing with the Indigenous hand drum. Some have even been able to get in touch with their inner child/inner children.
Compassionate Inquiry was taught to me by world-renowned trauma expert, Dr. Gabor Maté. It really aligned with my intuitive spiritual counselling work so I integrated the two.
Compassionate Inquiry is an effective tool at helping you to get in touch with your your feelings (physical/emotional), your authentic self, your inner child, aspects of yourself and/or blockages you may not even be aware of.
It can help you to release whatever you are feeling (physical/emotional), carrying and/or holding.
It is said that all pain arises from a disconnection from the self.
In the simplest terms, all you need to do in order to experience Compassionate Inquiry, is surrender your logical mind and any judgements you may have about yourself, be open to allowing your feelings (emotional/physical), and trust and allow yourself to be guided in our group.
I've heard some artists and creatives share they are feeling really blocked during this pandemic and so getting in touch with your authentic self by feeling the feelings can be a way to help remove blockages and get the energy and creative juices flowing again.
You can join in on Zoom from the comfort of your own home.
Please use the contact form to be added to the email distribution list for the Online Event offerings distribution list where more details will be shared as well as the Zoom link and password:
You can read about Compassionate Inquiry (one on one) here to help understand this approach however, our group is a hands-on experiential learning experience where I will be guiding participants to go into your feelings (emotional/physical):
Our group is private.
You will be feeling the emotions and/or physical feelings within yourself so no one need know what you are feeling and/or experiencing. Sharing at the end of our group is completely optional. You can even chat with me privately.
We will start with a guided mediation in nature and then I will help you to create and call in a support network.
This support provides stabilization before the Compassionate Inquiry and exploring your feelings.
Studies show that having support before going into the feelings (especially around trauma, pain and grief) can help to prevent destabilization and/or retraumatization.
You don't need a Zoom account to join and you don't have to download the app if you have a computer, as you can join via your browser.
These events are PWYC (pay what you can) with a suggested donation $20 or free for those that need it.
You can donate at the button below or you can save me the Pay Pal fees, and send payment via e-transfer to my email address at soulpurposehealing @ gmail . com (all as one word).
