Questions & Answers
What will I get out of it?
In L.I. we don’t apply effort to “work on” something. When I’m facilitated it looks a lot like this: I’m supported through this simple process – it can be fun, quiet, intense, restful, furious, sad, scary (sometimes all in one session). In the session we’re seemingly not getting anywhere, but when I go back to my life, change has happened. The same circumstances and events may occur, but they way I feel about it is different. It feels lighter, looser, not so charged.
Scott Kiloby, the founder of the Living Inquiries, puts it like this:
“You can take the Living Inquiries as deep as you want to go with them. They can be used to stop or quiet negative behaviors and issues (e.g., addiction, anxiety, depression, OCD, etc). They can help you take yourself and life much less seriously. They can be taken further into seeing the transparency of anything that is perceived as separate including self, other, the world, revealing a natural acceptance of everything that arises moment by moment. If taken even further, they can even be used to dissolve the core self contraction.”
What’s the purpose?
L.I. sessions are inherently agenda free. That being said, when we’re in the thick of it we are most likely not. We want to feel better. Of course we do. And luckily, as a client, you can have as much agenda as you want – the process is still going to go somewhere (most likely somewhere unexpected). There’s no saying in advance what that’s going to look like for you, or how this will affect your life.
Sure, these sessions do have the potential to make you feel better. They tend to relieve suffering, dissolve negative and addictive patterns, relax body and self identification. But there is a deeper invitation here; the invitation to discover a new way of being, where feeling bad isn’t scary or something to get away from.
I use L.I. in sickness and in health. It supports me in rough times and it deepens and enriches the pleasurable ones.
What is required from you?
Only willingness. In L.I., we learn to relax into «I don’t know». We look at our beliefs without an agenda. We let them be seen and unravel on their own without our own doing.
