Any tension we experience

Any tension we experience, no matter how small, is an opportunity to integrate body wisdom through feeling. Feel the body sensation that shows up and let it be experienced. And perhaps most important, let it change or evolve however it happens to do so.    ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The mind wants to solve

The mind wants to solve problems. That is an excellent thing to do if the thing you are solving is something logical.  However the feelings within us are not based in logic, they are feelings.  They are not something you “reason with”, they are sensations.  Let them be sensations and allow yourself to simply feel gently and allow the issue to unwind.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Somewhere inside everybody knows

Ram Das said: “Somewhere inside, everybody knows that there is a place which is totally fulfilling.  Not a desperate flick of fulfillment, it is a state of fulfillment.”

As we allow our sensations to be experienced, our orientation shifts from achieving for the sake of achieving, to living a life that brings fulfillment. This leads to true happiness.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Wonder Method

We are often asked just what is The Wonder Method?  Probably first and foremost it is a subtle, simple, yet counter intuitive way to become incredibly present.  Other names for this might be “awake”, “grounded”, or “balanced” within ourselves.  Beyond this it is a model that can be used to offer healing to others and to unwind limiting beliefs and experiences until calm and balance are experienced within us.  If we take it further it is also a way to step beyond the common view of reality or Maya and begin to live in satisfaction and joy.  This all starts with feeling at the sensation level and everything evolves from there.  We encourage you to feel; it is wonderfully satisfying. ~ Alain & Jody Herriott 

On the Path

Most everyone that is on the path to self knowledge (the art of being) is doing so from the perspective of trying to achieve it.  Interestingly, it is this attitude that most holds us back from arriving at “Being”.  We must also remember that it is an evolving process, not just an end result. Many believe that we will arrive and that will be it.  In our experience, this is not the case, we are a constant evolution of awakening.  Today’s understanding is tomorrow stepping stone to more awareness and due to its subtlety, more Being.   Enjoy the journey.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott  

Life is defined by stress

So much of our life is defined by stress, what we want and what we don’t want. The more stress, the more resistance we experience about everything we do.  As we unfold, through unwinding our resistance, we begin to realize that the less we resist, the more we open. In time we are living the maxim, “when nothing is done, nothing is left undone.”  Now we are balance, a never ending now of being. Enjoy the journey. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Heart Sutra

The Heart Sūtra is a popular sutra in Mahāyāna Buddhism. Its Sanskrit title, Prajñāpāramitāhṛdaya, can be translated as “The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom”. The sutra famously states, “Form is empty”.

“The most popular part of it that many have heard is “Gone, Gone, Gone beyond, Gone beyond beyond, Hail the goer.”

As we unwind our locked feelings we go beyond our former boundaries and we hail your  courage and surrender.  Enjoy the journey.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Tao is like a well

“The Tao is like a well used but never used up, It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities.” The Tao te Ching translation by Stephen Mitchell

As we reconnect to our feelings and unwind our fears, we realize who we are and are again filled with infinite possibility.  Alain & Jody Herriott
