Podcast #9 — Wednesday, July 1, 2009 — The Journey Inward

Today we address the profound importance of breath and present-centered awareness in our journey inward toward liberation. Christine Stewart Price has been Diane’s teacher in this form of active meditation since 1994. Gestalt Awareness Practice (GAP) is a Practice of Presence and being with ‘what is’ in a spirit of kindness, what Chris chooses to call a spirit of “Aloha”.

Aloha is a beautiful Hawaiian word that encompasses both “hello” and “good-bye,” as well as “I love you.” Alo means space, and Ha means breath, so GAP is a practice of bringing a sense of spaciousness and awareness of breath to our experience. We say hello to “what is” without resistance, or we say good-bye without clinging. We contact our experience, whatever it is, with a sense of affection, kindness and self-care. If the Enneagram provides a great map of our inner experience, GAP helps us walk through the territory. Join Chris and Diane as GAP principles illuminate the journey of Lioness as well as our own.

It came from one of the women in our LiT-uPP core group as she looked up from reading a book that held a chapter on The Lioness Tale Prison Project. I knew the lines she was referring to because I had written them...
