Healthy Power in Healing and Spiritual Spaces

I chat with Jane about healthy power, reality validation, and humility, through the lens of teacher/student relationships. We also explore how these dynamics are mirrored in the bodywork and healing world, between practitioner and client.

A Model of Awakening Presentation
The Stoa, April 2023
I share my approach for modelling experience and awakening. This style of modelling uses a framework to map how each of us is a living body, heart, mind and soul eco-system.
We can get much deeper clarity on these different parts of experience – body, heart, mind and soul – than most people think is possible, while also recognising that there is no single or final source of truth.
The framework is sufficiently sophisticated to meaningfully include a high level of complexity, while also encouraging a deep embodiment and connection with what is simply here in the present moment we share.
Rosa demonstrates different forms that this model can take, uses the model to outline an awakening path and describes how her approach differs from a more traditional Buddhist path and perspective.

Podcast with James O’Halloran
Recorded 20th December 2019, in Bristol, UK
In this two-part podcast, I talk to the lovely James O’Halloran about my story.
Part One: some of the things we discuss are being present with difficult emotions, feeling like a fountain of light is rushing out the top of my head and living from the heart.
Part Two: Me losing my mind, learning to trust your intuition, shamanic journeying and death, amongst other things.
Conversation with Daniel Ingram
Recorded 22nd September 2019, in Bristol, UK
Daniel and I recorded a conversation in which we talk about some of my early weird states of consciousness. We wanted to raise awareness of the possibility of reaching alternate states of consciousness through meditation and offer insight into what is supportive for people experiencing these states, to make them as magical and pain-free as possible.
Part One: I give some examples of my alternate states of consciousness and when they were well-supported by people around me.
Part Two: We talk about compassionate alternatives to capitalism, our perspectives on the role of teachers in the Dharma, our favourite types of retreats and a bunch of other interesting stuff.
