A wonderful teacher is coming to Minnesota at the end of April. I have experienced a ten-day retreat and a number of workshops with Richard Moss and have come away each time deeply moved and more deeply connected. His work, his wisdom and his presence bring together the spiritual and psychological, inviting a deep integrity with self, with others and with life.
Inside-Out Healing, his most recent book (on which the Minnesota workshop is based), offers gem after gem of uncommon wisdom, along with a practical methodology to access the power of presence in the now as a gateway to spaciousness, transformation and healing. If you're interested in the book, the work or the workshop, please check out the website: www.healing.richardmoss.com
While there's no way to capture the depth of Richard's wisdom with a quote or two, I'd like to share a couple passages from the end of the book – passages among many that touched and inspired me.
"When you are no longer the doer, that is when something deeper within you begins to live through you. This is a state of remarkable aliveness. This is what every athlete, artist, and writer has discovered at some time in his or her career…
"When you become a vehicle for your inner wisdom, you are witness to an inner creator, and that experience gives you faith in yourself and a sense of marvel about what is hidden within you that, given a chance, can live through you. It also offers you profound appreciation for all those who have let their deeper
aliveness and inner genius be born through them…
"This is really what it comes down to: risking to let yourself become radically alive. It will help you heal. At the very least it may soothe your body and take away pain. Being that alive, even if only for a matter of moments, may actually cure you of illness. But even if that doesn't happen, your heart will be overflowing with gratitude. And there is no medicine more powerful than the energy of your own grateful heart."
