The Field of Inner Work

The doing of inner work is a process which encompasses the physical, emotional, intellectual, psychological and the transpersonal aspects of what it means to be a human being. The psychological process of inner work is the experience of our own unique nature unfolding in time with the help of an observing partner along the way. Rumi, a Sufi mystic and poet has a brief reflection on the sense of authenticity we encounter in our inner work, "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,  there is a field. I'll meet you there!" This is the field of true inner work. We experience the unfolding moment to moment shifts in our thinking, the way we feel towards our selves, others and the world around us.  The sensations which come to us through our body and through our dream life are also aspects of this field of inner work.  Jung is often quoted as saying, "Everything living dreams of individuation, for everything strives toward its own wholeness. Individuation does not shut one out of the world but gathers the world to oneself." As we are all living with this dream, this section of the website is designed to give you an opportunity to reflect on individuation, your own process of becoming. 

"All true things must change and only that which changes remains true." - Carl Jung
