It is possible, at any moment in our life, to locate within our selves a wonderful space of freedom, ease, and inner peace. A space where nothing is wrong; where there is nothing to fix or improve. We are satisfied. We are complete. All is well.
Discovering this space, and then caring for it, calls on us to quickly and authentically transform any resistance, struggle, or negativity that arises within. We learn to let go, to let be, and find the natural ease and flow of our life.
LIVING LIGHTLY - LIVING FREELY I is an inquiry dedicated to this possibility.
In our work together we will explore a fundamental set of principles for the practice of transformation. In this course we will examine a simple but profound method of inquiry (as presented by Byron Katie in her book "Loving What Is"). This inquiry is a clear set of questions that, when genuinely enaged, lead to new and exciting breakthroughs, insights, and freedoms.
In six sessions you will be introduced to ideas and practices that will make new and extraordinary possibilities in living available to you.
Through our work on real-life situations, demonstrations and practice, we will touch the magic of freedom and inner peace - experience for ourselves the power of transformation.
It is the mastering of the course basic principles, along with discovering the power of inquiry for yourself, that supports LIVING LIGHTLY - LIVING FREELY - as the very source of your own peace and well being.
To register for this course, or if you have questions call Paul Beckow at The Victoria Family Insitute 721 2477.

Quote: (Vernon Howard)
Q: We are told to surrender ourselves to Reality. I am not sure what that means.
A: Right surrender is to voluntarily detect and abandon everything inside you that causes trouble. Can you think of a happier task?

New Growth for Couples - The Flowering of Relationship Course. Excerpted from the Victoria Times Colonist September 2003, Edited.
There are some questions that have been around humanity for a long time. What is real? Who am I? are two such questions. They are powerful questions - if one inquires into them so that they have a real and practical impact on the direct living of our life.
LIVING LIGHTLY - LIVING FREELY II is such an inquiry.
Each person has a fundamental structure of identity that shapes, limits, defines their life. Usually we live without question, bound within this identification.
Yet what if- that is not who you really are? What if who you areally are is something far more mysterious. What if, to quote Seneca: "The self you fuss and suffer from does not really exist. This is something we must all come to understand. When we do we finally come to the light."
LIVING LIGHTLY - LIVING FREELY II is an exploration that leads us to the light. An inquiry that unmasks our larger identity and nature as a magician - and lights our freedom to be and power to create in life.
This course is dynamite and full of delights and surprises!
