About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

The Jungian Model: I think the Monday 4th Dec 7pm talk looks good

I think it's very useful to have some sort of insight into the Jungian model. If you really don't know any Jungian stuff, then I think this will be very useful.
Jungian stuff is where all the archetype stuff comes from, and shadow work. Its a good model of reality really. In my opinion. Not perfect, but it'll do for now. If you come from a troubled family background this stuff helps.

Heres some blurb on tomorrow evenings talk..
Reclaiming Mother, Reclaiming Father

Our earliest experiences and relationships shape us but need not determine how we choose to live. Living soulfully involves not only accepting our wounds as our greatest gifts, but also our life initiations as spiritual tasks of empowerment.

This talk will look at early life, particularly the prenatal and birth experience, as our first formative initiation. Benig Mauger will explain the way in which archetypal soul and family patterns are inherited and how our first relationships form a template for all future relationships. Although our earliest experiences often diminish our ability to live from our essential self, she will discuss how we can heal early wounds, release and transform soul bonds and live authentic empowered lives.

Benig Mauger is a Jungian psychotherapist and pioneer in pre and peri-natal psychology. She is a birth teacher and author of Songs from the Womb, Healing the Wounded Mother and Reclaiming Father: The Search for Wholeness in Men, Women and Children. She has a private practice in Ireland and teaches internationally.
