The Wholeness Work is a precise and specific model for actually doing what many spiritual teachings talk about.
If you have explored Eastern spirituality, you have probably heard phrases like “The small self is an illusion. Realize that you are a vast Self,” or “Enlightenment comes through loss of the ego.” But what do such statements actually mean? In this training you’ll learn a step-by-step process for dissolving the everyday sense of the ego. The experience ranges from extremely ordinary to something that can be quite profound.
And what does this have to do with resolving our life problems?
Sometimes spiritual practices are taught and done in a way that actually creates a degree of separation between meditative or profound states, and daily life. People might enjoy deep meditative states, but find that their life issues don’t necessarily go away…
With the Wholeness Work, there is a natural and immediate integration with daily living. Our life issues can actually be doorways to the experience of this “vast self” – or just a sense of affectionate presence and clarity. And the life issues are transformed in the process.
Some people have found that issues that hadn’t changed with years of effort are finally changing using the Wholeness Work. And the results are more significant and ongoing than just solving problems.
If you choose to use this simple method as a life practice (and this can happen in only a few minutes a day, once you’ve learned the method), you will most likely experience a fundamental shift in how you are in the world. Some describe it as having a growing sense of wellbeing, or peace, or joy. Rather than becoming some idea of “perfection”, the wellbeing comes through a very specific and increasingly effortless way of including and integrating everything that does – or could – arise in our experience.
How do I get started?
You can choose the way to begin experiencing the benefits of the Wholeness Work that fits best with your personal learning style, your financial resources, and your time. Here’s a complete overview of options you can choose from, with links to more detailed information about each.
You can begin by reading the book, attending a live workshop, or reviewing any of our online learning options [add link to Resources?]. Some people prefer an individual session. You’ll know which format works best for you.
In a seminar you have the warm guidance of the trainer and staff, plus the support of your participant group. Many people find this a particularly powerful way to experience the Wholeness Work. You will have the opportunity to work with your key life issues in an atmosphere of gentle kindness, with the added benefit of group support. All of the trainings listed on this site are taught by approved trainers of the Wholeness Work.
The Wholeness Work is helping people in more areas than we ever thought it would. It does this by accessing a more fundamental aspect of the structure of our psyche than we could previously reach. It’s simple, gentle, and opens the doorway to a more joyful, loving, creative, and fulfilling life.
Here are a few more areas where the Wholeness Work helps:
“I haven’t been losing my temper.” “The jealousy I felt isn’t there.” “Before I was so easily hurt, and now I can usually deal with other people’s rough edges from a more loving place. This becomes stronger as I use this method more. It feels like something got healed.”
“It shifted the compulsive eating I was doing.”
Note that some of the above changes were from a one-time use of the process. However experiences like chronic health issues or depression usually get the best results when using this process over time. Often people do experience quite soon that something is finally beginning to work for them. The full results usually come through learning to use the process as a simple and kind life practice. After learning the process, this can be done in a short amount of time, or even while we are going about our usual activities.
