Thoor Ballylee Yeats' Tower

Each time I pass the sign post for Thoor Ballylee I feel drawn to revisit so last evening on my way home from Galway I answered that call.

The  road leading to Toor Ballyle.

And stopped off there .

It is easy to understand his love for this quiet, soft place.

So lovely in the evening light.

Quiet woods,

And gentle flowing river,

And meadows where minds can wander and reflect.

I, the poet William Yeats,

With old mill boards and sea-green slates,

And smithy work from the Gort forge,

Restored this tower for my wife George.

And may these characters remain

When all is ruin once again.
            W.B Yeats

Each time I passed the sign post for Toor Balleylee I have felt drawn to revisit .

Here is a really interesting youtube video about a woman who communicates with animals. Such a fascinating story and Anna has such a peaceful presence, such a stillness and connection with the animals it is inspiring enlightening to watch her work.

Black Leopard and Anna Breytenbach

Hope you find it as fascinating as I did.

Lester's Way

                                                      Lester Levenson

Lester Levenson  in his awakening realised that feelings cover thousands of thoughts. He discovered that if we can let go of our feelings our thoughts quieten. When this happens we come to know our true nature. We realise that we are already whole and complete. We come to recognise that we are not our thoughts, or our mind. We come to know through our own experience that we are much more than these appearances which are temporary. We begin to know our true eternal nature. This is a huge relief and brings great peace and joy.

What is even more interesting is that Lester's way does not reject the world but uses our attachments and aversions to the world in order to wake us up to our true nature.

 Lester says why not have it all . You are a limitless being believing you are limited . Let Go of your beliefs and feelings and come to know your true nature and you can have all your dreams come true.

Here are some samples of Lester's method , the first is from  Larry Crans's  student Ken

 Releasing with Ken.

The second is the Letting Go Movie by Hale Dwoskin

Hale Dwoskin's Movie 

Both give insights into this amazing method of awakening to our true nature.

Next Releasing Session

We will have another session of releasing and investigating the Sedona Method on Friday July 11'th.

The Evening will begin with T'ai Chi from 5-6,  this really worked well last time and was a very  enjoyable  'warm up' for the releasing session. T'ai Chi and releasing really go well together as T'ai Chi's  yielding is really ( in my opinion ) a form of releasing.

Releasing will begin at 6 and we will work until 10 pm .

I have been getting great feedback on how effective the method is in resolving issues and setting and attaining goals.

If you have been to a session  already or would like to come along for the first time just phone, text or email me to book a place.

 Catherine Wybourne

 'Love is free yet binds us'

Love is more easily experienced than defined. As a theological virtue, by which we love God above all things and our neighbours as ourselves for his sake, it seems remote until we encounter it enfleshed, so to say, in the life of another – in acts of kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice. Love's the one thing that can never hurt anyone, although it may cost dearly. The paradox of love is that it is supremely free yet attaches us with bonds stronger than death. It cannot be bought or sold; there is nothing it cannot face; love is life's greatest blessing.

 Catherine Wybourne is a Benedictine nun

Unending Love

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it's age-old pain,
It's ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

Written by Rabindranath Tagore

Greatest writer in modern Indian literature, Bengali poet, novelist, educator, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913.

Summer Fun

The new look Fitzgeralds Park garden is a great hit with the kids. They love climbing on these slippery hemispheres.

The scent of lavender is lovely as we walk to the cafe.

Perfect space to enjoy the summertime practice.

Advice from Awa Kenzo

                                                            Awa Kenzo

Do your best at each and everything. That is the key to success. Learn one thing well and you will learn how to understand ten thousand things. Ten thousand things are one; this is the secret  place of understanding you  must find. Then everything is mysterious and wonderful.

Here is a great Sedona Method Tip


Next time you find yourself judging someone and disapproving of them stop, take a step back in your mind and notice how you feel.

 Now ask yourself " Could I let go of disapproving of this person ,  ( just for now) ? 

Then repeat asking yourself the question and keep letting go of that feeling of disapproval.

Now take another look inside and notice how you feel. 

How you feel towards that person. 

Next, notice how you feel towards yourself. 

You see when we disprove of anyone it doesn't feel good. 

Our true nature is loving and when we disapprove of anyone  we don't like it  we are out of line with our true nature. 

Try it,  as Lester would say,  " Take it for checking" .

A Walk In Coole

One of the woodland paths towards Coole lake

Down to the water

Along the water's edge

Through the rocky flower filled field

Back to the woods

Past reminders of Yeats

At the sign for Pairc Na Tarbh

Pairc na Tarbh ( there is no v in the Irish language )

Back to the garden walls, heart and mind full of Yeats and Lady Gregory

                    I walked among the seven woods of Coole:
                    Shan-walla, where a willow-bordered pond
                    Gathers the wild duck from the winter dawn;
                    Shady Kyle-dortha; sunnier Kyle-na-no,
                    Where many hundred squirrels are as happy
                    As though they had been hidden by green boughs
                    Where old age cannot find them; Pairc-na-lee,
                    Where hazel and ash and privet blind the paths:
                    Dim Pairc-na-carraig, where the wild bees fling
                    Their sudden fragrances on the green air;
                    Dim Pairc-na-tarav, where enchanted eyes
                    Have seen immortal, mild, proud shadows walk;
                    Dim Inchy wood, that hides badger and fox
                    And marten-cat, and borders that old wood
                    Wise Biddy Early called the wicked wood:
                    Seven odours, seven murmurs, seven woods.
                    I had not eyes like those enchanted eyes,
                    Yet dreamed that beings happier than men
                    Moved round me in the shadows, and at night
                    My dreams were cloven by voices and by fires;
                   And the images I have woven in this story
                   Of Forgael and Dectora and the empty waters
                   Moved round me in the voices and the fires,
                   And more I may not write of, for they that cleave
                   The waters of sleep can make a chattering tongue
                   Heavy like stone, their wisdom being half silence.
                   How shall I name you, immortal, mild, proud shadows?
                   I only know that all we know comes from you,
                   And that you come from Eden on flying feet.
                   Is Eden far away, or do you hide
                   From human thought, as hares and mice and coneys
                  That run before the reaping-hook and lie
                  In the last ridge of the barley? Do our woods
                  And winds and ponds cover more quiet woods,
                  More shining winds, more star-glimmering ponds?
                  Is Eden out of time and out of space?
                  And do you gather about us when pale light
                  Shining on water and fallen among leaves,
                  And winds blowing from flowers, and whirr of feathers
                  And the green quiet, have uplifted the heart?
                  I have made this poem for you, that men may read it
                  Before they read of Forgael and Dectora,
                  As men in the old times, before the harps began,
                  Poured out wine for the high invisible ones.

Digesting A Dr Hawkins Lectur

Monetary Cypress in Coole Park

I listened to one of Dr Hawkins lectures from Transcending the Levels of Consciousness as I drove home from Galway last night.
I find him really easy to listen to , his mind is so lucid and his explanations are so clear and direct.
In this particular lecture he explained how entrainment of our minds works and how by entraining our minds we are using our 'free will '. I found his explanation a great help in understanding why entrainment is so important. I have heard this many tomes before , we are all familiar with the idea that you can know people by the company they keep , by the books they read or the music they 'choose' to listen to. These choices we make on a daily basis develop our minds and our psyches in particular ways.  In other words entrrain our brains.
Recently a friend  of mine was arguing that the brain experiment which  show that our brain signals body movements before we are conscious of  'deciding ' to move proved the whole idea of predestination. She believed that this experiment proved that free will did not exist and that our brains were 'running' us. 
Dr Hawkins insight  helped me to understand that okay the brain is 'causing' us to act in a certain way, however we can become conscious of our intentions and can take back some power by what we choose to feed our minds, by how we spend our time etc. If we want our brains to give us different commands we need to educate our brains.
Recent research on meditation and mindfulness practises show that this is not only possible but that even a few weeks of daily training can change one's brain in huge ways. 

Here is a short youtube  video an the science of how meditation changes your brain.

Off To Galway


I'm heading off up to Galway for a meeting this evening and planning to stop in Coole Park on the way.

 During the Gaelic Literary Revival in the late 19th and early 20th century Coole became a haven in which famous literary figures sought refuge from time to time, drawn by the hospitality and enthusiasm of Lady Gregory, whom George Bernard Shaw once described as the 'greatest living Irishwoman'.

                 'Under my window ledge the waters race,
                 Otters below and moor-hens on the top,
                 Run for a mile undimmed in Heaven's face,
                 Then darkening through 'dark' Raftery's 'cellar' drop,
                 Run underground, rise in a rocky place
                 In Coole demesne, and there to finish up
                 Spread to a lake and drop into a hole.
                 What's water but the generated soul?'

                 W.B. Yeats 'Coole Park and Ballylee, 1931

So looking forward to spending an hour or two wandering in these grounds that have inspired Irish men and women through many generations.

Michael Newton - An Interview

                                              Michael Newton

 Michael Newton, Ph.D is the Founder of The Newton Institute for Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy and has written many books on our time between lives.  His books  focus on the experience his clients have during the time they spend in the spirit world rather than in their past lives. I'm reading his book Journey of Souls and it is a fascinating read.  The accounts his clients recall are very similar to accounts I have come across in books from the International Academy of Consciousness such as Less Incomplete by Sandy Gustus .
Here below is a link to an interview with Michael Newton that gives an interesting overview of his fascinating work.

Releasing with the Sedona Method

                                              Hale Dwoskin

Here is the link to the Sedona Method Special Release Process I promised to last night's releasers.
Hale Dwoskin Special Release Process
I find this process really great to use on any difficult relationship I encounter.

If you have more time the Letting Go Movie is also a great over view of how releasing can help you become more present and free from old programmes which were 'running' consciously or more often unconsciously in your life.   Letting Go Movie

Here is a link to the Sedona Method website Sedona where you can find more information programmes   and books about the method.

A Big Thanks To Everyone For Making Our ARC House Fundraiser Such AGreat Success

Here is Joan sitting at her 'desk'  in Dervish . Joan did all the paperwork yesterday which allowed the work to happen smoothly. She met everyone and welcomed them gave out all our ARC information to those who hadn't known about our work in ARC House. She also shared information about Reconnective Healing to people who wanted to learn more about that work.

Such a busy day we worked with 20 clients.

Here is the 'Team' Pauline  Joan Eileen ( behind Joan ) me and Karen.

What a Great Day of Fundraising , Healing and Connecting.

Fundraising Day for ARC House Cancer Support

We are all set and ready for our day of healing and sharing at Dervish .

                        Each Day Brings a Chance to Do Better

                       How often we wish for another chance

                      To make a fresh beginning,

                      A chance to blot out our  mistakes

                      And change failure into winning—

                      And it does not take a special time

                      To make a brand-new start,

                      It only takes the deep desire

                      To try with all our heart

                      To live a little better

                       And to always be forgiving

                        And to add a little “sunshine”

                        To the world in which we’re living—

                        So never give up in despair

                         And think that you are through,

                         For there’s always a tomorrow

                         And a chance to start anew.

What's Here Now ?

What's Here Now ?

This is a powerful question and a great way  back to presence.

On our retreat in Sedona we asked each other this question often.

Hale Dwoskin asked this question in the group releasing sessions.
Now I am in the habit of asking myself this question every time I find myself resisting being where I am.
Whenever I'm thinking things should be other than they are I bring myself back to here and now by asking myself,

 What is here now ?

 What thoughts are passing through my mind ?

What emotions are causing me to resist being here ?

The mind usually tells us that things are better somewhere else , some time in the future will be perfect,  or maybe some time in the past was more complete. This is how the mind distracts us from becoming more fully present. It tells us that we will miss out by giving our full attention to this moment.

Next time you find your mind resisting the present moment try asking yourself ,

What is here now ?

What thoughts are passing through my mind ?

What emotions are causing me to resist being here ?

I bet you too will begin to realise how the mind was lying , how here and now is actually just fine, in fact it is perfect just as it is.

Thursday, 12 June 2014


Take a few minutes to just STOP and allow yourself to feel all the sensations and emotions in your body. 

Even while reading this you can be feeling into your body, noticing where it feels tense, and also where it feels relaxed. 

Now when you have read this close your eyes for a few moments and allow yourself to welcome all the sensations and emotions. Welcome any tension, tiredness or pain in your body. Allow these sensations to be fully present without resisting them ( as best you can ). 

Take another ' look ' now, you will probably notice a shift a softening in those places of dis-ease, and increase in your sense of  relaxation. 

Go on do it again,  close your eyes for a few more moments and allow your body to be 'heard'. Listen as you would to a child who is upset , listen wholeheartedly in order to sooth your body with your love .  Hold the pains and tension lovingly so they can feel your love and acceptance. Then just like children who have been lovingly attended to, these places of dis-ease will begin to calm down , to unwind and relax. 

If you repeat this for a few minutes through out your day I promise you will be amazed at how your body responds to this loving attention.  

Now you can also use this Special Release Process ( with Hale Dwoskin) it was originally designed to be used 'on people' but I find it equally useful on thoughts , concepts and emotions. It takes about 20 minutes.

Inspiration and Insight from Gail Gustafson

I've just read The Fish on the Camel by Gail Gustafson ( from Nipun Mehta) and it I felt goosebumps all over , the piece resonates so well with my experience and I'm sure anyone who reads my blog will resonate too.

As Hafiz says, "First, The fish needs to say, “Something ain’t right about this Camel ride – And I’m Feeling so damn Thirsty.”

Most of us come to practice meditation for exactly what Hafiz points to in this poem. We get an inkling that something just isn’t right about our lives. We cannot exactly say what it is that isn’t right. All the externals may look great, yet the fish on the camel feels that it is not in its natural environment, and it is thirsty. There is a yearning to connect to something deeper or higher or different. “Is there something beyond being thirsty on this camel?” This thirst, this niggling feeling, becomes the initiator to start seeking. What we seek is not yet known. This is how the path begins & continues; following a feeling and seeking something that will start to quench that thirst.

In my own life, I came to practice through this kind of seeking. In 1986, I was a dancer -training and auditioning in that competitive world. I had studied with the “greats” of my time: Martha Graham, Trisha Brown, Laura Dean, etc. I landed a coveted position with a prestigious dance company. I was filled with the sense that I had “made it”. In the third week of rehearsals it dawned on me, I was at the top of the world & yet I was “feeling so damn thirsty”. Something wasn’t right. All the glamour was not touching what I was seeking.

I did something crazy. I resigned. I had no idea what I was going to do, but I knew I could not continue on the camel ride. I spent many gloomy weeks doing my usual ritual of movement classes. Technique was no longer fulfilling, other dancers avoided me & my internal critics had a heyday. Then it dawned on me: though I did not yet know what I was seeking, I did have the use of a large old room at a local church in exchange for caring for their alter. For three hours daily, for one year, I locked myself in the empty room, with the intention to move, listen & engage what I was seeking.

For a year I listened. Sometimes I was inspired by movement, often I laid on the floor wide awake. At times my mind drove me crazy and periodically there was complete peace. After a year, I said goodbye to this practice & sought a teacher who would be able to engage what I now knew & guide me in ways to follow what I yet did not know. It a took a few years to find such a teacher. When I found one, my heart spun; like a compass that has finally found north, like a dog, who finally understands that a person’s language means something & the possibility of a whole new world awakens. And so it has continued for me. I practice, I reach impasses, I listen, I contemplate the seeking heart and a new teacher appears. This is why many practice meditation, to learn to engage what we seek.

Meditation practice is not about ignoring some part of your life. It starts like the fish on the camel; recognizing something isn’t quite right. Then it proceeds to asking your questions, engaging your seeking heart and learning tools to bring this heart into your life.

 Looking forward to meeting new people and spreading good energy and positive Vibrations and  Frequencies in Cork.

I always enjoy working with the Reconnective Frequencies it feels as if lots of positive energy surrounds us as we participate in the healing work. The room feels different and I can only imagine how amplified this effect will be with a whole day of work and four practitioners plus many fully ' Reconnected ' people present.

I am so grateful to my Reconnective healing friends   Pauline Jones (coming from Dublin)  , Karen Keane (coming from Kerry) , and Eileen Acton  (North Cork )  who are all sharing their time and experience to make this day possible.

A Fun Interesting Day At The Gateways Of The Mind


Here Charlie Morley giving his talk on Mindfulness Of Dream And Sleep. What an interesting day,
each speaker gave us a 'taste' of their work. Tim Freke entertained and inspired us with his presentation on Lucid Dreaming, he actually filled the space with his enthusiasm. William Buhlman rounded off the day with his life's work on OBE . It was amazing to get to meet and speak with all these explorers of consciousmess whose books adorn my shelfs.

Everyone circulated during the breaks.

Charlie Morley passes a comment as I promote The IAC.

A last look back to Dublin when I each Heuston Station tired and happy.

Off To Dublin To Represent The International Academy Of Consciousness At The Gateways Of The Mind

Little did I think when I was wandering around Lisbon last autumn ( after attendind the advanced 2 training at the IAC  Campus ) that I'd be representing the Academy at the Gateways Of The Mind .

It is great to have the opportunity to attend today and share the benefits of training with the IAC.
I found their training awakened me to the different levels of sleep ,dreaming and out of body states.
Before I attended their courses I had never heard of the hypnogogic state and without recognising states such as that I would never have become conscious of the posibility of inducing an Out of body experience. 

Today William Buhlman who wrote Adventures Beyond the Body, Charlie Morley and Tim Freke and a host of other leading edge writers and explorers of consciousness will speak and share their experience and wisdom.  

Attending this conference is a dream being realised.  So many Gains since the Retreat in Sedona this is just more evidence of the power of releasing.

Ps A Huge Thanks To All Who Came Along To Release Last Night What A Great time We Had !

Lester's story, how he discovered that the love and happiness he was seeking outside had always been inside himself.

We too can learn that love lies inside.  Each time we let go we become lighter, happier and more loving.
Read Lester's story be inspired , come and join us '  Letting Go  'this Friday evening in Blackrock .
The Releasing Session begins at 6pm . We will have a short T'ai Chi practised from 5 -6pm as a soft warm-up. This worked really well last time and was a fun way to begin the evening's work.
Thanks to all those who have signed up already so looking forward to sharing this amazing tool with you again.
Feedback from our last session is great and I'm looking forward to hearing more of the positive gains this week.

                                                          Lester Levenson

Lester . . .
“Wait a minute!” he thought. “If happiness is when I’m experiencing love for the other one, then that means happiness is a feeling within me.
“And if I felt unloving in the past? Well, I know I can’t change the past, but could I possibly correct the feeling now inside myself? Could I change the feeling to love now?” He decided to try it. He looked at his most recent unhappiness, the day he left the hospital.
“First,” he asked himself, “was I experiencing a lack of love that day?”
“Yes,” he answered aloud. “Nobody gave a damn about me, not the nurses, not the orderlies, not even Dr. Schultz. They did not care. As sick as I was, they threw me out, sent me home to die so they wouldn’t have to watch one of their failures . . . well, the hell with them. They can all go to hell.” He was shocked at the vehemence in his voice. His body trembled with rage and he felt weak. He really hated the doctor: He could feel it burning in his chest. “Oh, boy,” he thought, “this sure isn’t love.”
“Well, can I change it?” he asked. “Is it possible to turn it into love for the doctor?”
“Hell, no,” he thought, “why should I? What did he ever do to deserve any love?”
“That’s not the point,” he answered himself. “The point is not whether he deserves love. The point is, can you do it? Is it possible to simply change a feeling of hatred into a feeling of love—not for the benefit of the other person but for yourself?”
As the thought crossed his mind, he felt something break loose in his chest. A gentle easing, a sense of dissolving, and the burning sensation was gone. He didn’t trust it at first. It seemed too easy, so he pictured again the scene with Dr. Schultz in the hospital. He was surprised to find that it brought only a mild feeling of resentment rather than the previous intense burning hatred. He wondered if he could do it again.
“Lets see,” he thought, “what did I just do? . . . Oh, yes. Can I change this feeling of resentment into a feeling of love?” He chuckled as he felt the resentment dissolve in his chest. Then it was totally gone and he was happy. He thought of Dr. Schultz again, pictured him in his mind and felt happy, even loving. He saw now, reliving that last meeting, how the doctor had hated to tell him the things he had to say. He could feel the doctor’s pain at having to tell a young man in the prime of his life that his life was over. “Dr. Schultz, you son-of-a-gun,” he said, grinning, “I love you.”
“Well, it worked on that one,” he thought. “If my theory is sound, then it should work on everything.” Eagerly, he began trying it on other moments, and the results were consistently the same. Each time that he asked himself if he could change the feeling of hostility or anger or hatred to one of love, the dissolving process took place. Sometimes he had to repeat it over and over until he felt only love for the person. At times, the entire process would take only a minute or two; at other times, it might take him hours of working on a particular person or event before his feelings were only loving, but he would doggedly stay with it until it was completed on each person and each incident.
His entire life came up for review in bits and pieces. One by one, he changed to love all the old hurts and disappointments. He began to feel stronger as the weight of his pain dropped away. He was happier than he had ever been in his entire life, and he kept it going, feeling even more happiness with each new thing corrected.

Personal Reconnective Memories

                                                           Galway June 2012

It is one thing giving someone a ' treatment ' and getting feedback, but now I really wanted to feel
what it was like to be on the receiving side of the table. So I did  some research, found Elsa Lee
(, and made an appointment with her in Galway. Elsa is warm and welcoming
and connects beautifully. I liked her immediately and was so glad I had come to her for my session.
Here are my ' notes ' after my treatment.

My first session with Elsa.

Calm very strong  registers in my eyes.
Very warm energy around my heart.
Later strong registers in my right arm.
Then very strong registers all over my whole body.
Very strong breathing and a sensation that reminded me of giving birth.
Then very calm again.
Later it felt as if Elsa was using electrodes on my body and I heard a crackling sound like static electricity.
There was a bubbling or fizzing sensation all over my body.

I was completely absorbed during the session and sorry when it ended. My body felt  alive and tingling for the rest of the day similar to how it would feel after a really good Shiatsu massage.

What an amazing session! I wanted more and very quickly decided to have ' Reconnection' with Elsa

Two weeks later I returned to Galway to be Reconnected.

Back to Galway and  '' The Reconnection '' with Elsa.
I had my reconnection two weeks ago ,  so glad I went ahead and did it . It takes two sessions to
 be reconnected and both were equally interesting, again I had intense feelings and responses to the
' Energy' almost as if I was being straightened out !
 I don't want to go in to all the details but it was intense and I feel it has made some big internal shifts in my being. Life seems to be supporting my efforts in everything related to Reconnection. As soon as I decided to work with the energy Joan ( one of my taichi students ) arrived with a fabulous massage table ! It just feels like something bigger than me is helping all the way.

What an amazing time and journey this last year must be one of the most interesting and enriching of my life so far.
