Community of Selves

Facilitated by: Dot Gunn & Sarah Wass

Dorothy Gunn will facilitate this weekend with Sarah Wass At Samye Ling Tibetan Centre, Eskdalemuir. Both are psychotherapists & Group Tara Rokpa Therapists.

Identity can be based on the notion of the 'self as a community' rather than a single entity. This a major theme of constructivist psychologist, Professor Miller Mair. 

This weekend intends to explore this theme in a gentle way using some of the methods of Tara Rokpa. In particular, we will use relaxation & art materials to begin to explore our identity. We will focus on the 'community of selves' as a metaphor to explore the narrative of who we might be & how these narratives create 'realities' in our lives. We can so easily become 'victims of our own fiction'. In this weekend we explore ways to view ourselves with less solidity.

Akong Rinpoche developed the Tara Rokpa methods using the principles & practices of Buddhism combined with some methods & ideas from western psychological therapies.Tara Rokpa has benefitted from Millar Mair's friendship, mentorship & his innovations in the area of personal inquiry.

This weekend is suitable for those with no previous experience of Tara Rokpa & its methods & for those with some familiarity who would like to engage in this aspect of the process.

The 3 healing Lights

Facilitated by: Susan Atkin and Sarah Wass
Show/Hide Biography

The 3 healing lights were offered to us by Dr Akong Ronpoche as part of his creation of Tara Rokpa. Tara Rokpa is a series of relaxations,meditations & self development exercises that are simple but profound & can be practiced in every day life.

The white,red & blue light visualisations use the healing qualities & powers of the elements that make up our bodies, our world & our universe.The visualisations use the elements in their pure & most essential form, that of light.The pure white light is especially suited to heal our physical body; the pure red light relates especially to the healing of emotional pain & blocks of expression & creativity; whereas the blue light especially helps to heal our fears, anxieties & lack of confidence.

Holy Isle is a wonderful place to experience the elements. We will utilise the natural qualities of earth,water,fire,air & space on the isle. We will also use art materials as a form of expression & the activity of simple massage to su[[ort the practice of these visualisations.

This workshop is suitable as an introduction to the 3 healing lights & for those familiar with the visualisations who wigh to deepen their experience of them.

Our aim will be to enable & encourage participants to pracice the exercises at home to help with the more enduring difficulties & when new difficulties arise. The workshop will approach them as relaxations, however participants are welcome to practice them as meditations if they wish.
