Ethos

Ethos – from the ancient Greek, meaning
the state of being; the inner source, the original essence that forms a person.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

T.S.Eliot

I believe there is a universal intelligence that is ever present and exists within all life. Human beings enter this world in a pure state of being and are a unique expression of this intelligence and life.

Over time, due to certain experiences in life and the effects of the surrounding environment, energy blockages/imbalances can develop in our systems.  As a result, we begin to shut off or close down from our natural capacity to be in touch with the freedom of being.  Symptoms of ill health are the body’s way of making us aware of imbalances within our systems, a call to listen to our bodies. Healing is a process of remembering and rediscovering our wholeness and oneness.

“Illness is not the enemy; it is the messenger. Illness is a story.”
Deena Metzger

Illness and suffering are complex, and true healing is a process that takes us much deeper than trying to fix the surface layer of symptoms.  Healing is a process that comes from within and is a path to rediscovering the truth of our beings.  We all have within ourselves vast resources for growth, healing and transformation. Given the right environment, this innate intelligence can be accessed and relied upon to guide us.  Symptoms  and imbalances are an invitation to listen to our bodies to find what is needed to restore health and wholeness, they are the way to access the healing your body and soul needs.

Growth happens automatically when the environment is favourable. In the right conditions, a flower effortlessly reaches for the light. – Diana Cooper
