The different aspects of experience and how we can feel into different parts of them
A lot of spiritual practice centres around cultivating more freedom, beauty, truth, wellbeing and love in the world.
This sounds beautiful, and it is, but often the things that stop people from accessing these things are shadows and being caught in subconscious double binds. There’s a risk that by focusing on the positive things too intently, spiritual practice takes us further away from the depths and truth of experience by papering over the cracks, ignoring the difficult bits and sweeping things under the carpet. A lot of the most challenging stuff is kept subconscious and these are the parts that hold the most potential for liberation – individually and collectively.
It’s important that everyone is able to look at this honestly and start to meet these parts with love and courage. This section talks about some of the darker and most important aspects of this, as well as some of the possibilities for a more inclusive and balanced approach to spirituality that can open experience up to a wider and more whole perspective.
