Joy or Happiness, is simply to know that all is well regardless of circumstances. It is the absence of psychological (mind-induced) suffering. We inquire about this in a natural way by supporting relational safety within the nervous system. Sometimes we need to let the nervous system complete threat responses so that it can be up-to-date with the regular flow of life in this present moment.
Even when circumstances are not favorable to comfort (such as illness or other dis-ease) we can still be happy. This is the natural state of animals.
The primary point of entry to the experience of happiness is ALWAYS right here, right now.
Ask yourself sincerely: Is it true that right here, right now, all is not well? Is it really true?
If the answer is yes, then a part of you (a mind-generated fragment) is attempting to prevent you from witnessing your actual experience of this moment. We can look into noticing, acknowledging and then naturally welcoming these fragments. As they release their energy and information to you, You come up to date with the flow of life, You come into your own presence and rejoice...because All is Well.
Happiness is attitudinal rather than circumstantial. This implies that happiness cannot be attributed to objects, means or reasons. It is outside of space and time and resides in the flow of life as it unfolds - from breath to breath.
Therapeutic Inquiry® | Dialectical Inquiry®
We use Therapeutic and Dialectical Inquiry® to re-discover the happiness that is our birthright. It goes far beyond trauma or psychological impediments, into the realm of a completely absorbing, ever flowering happiness.
Therapeutic Inquiry® investigates and heals the biological effects of the wounds of separation at the level of physiology. This investigation uses many different aspects found within the Somatic Experiencing® model by Dr. Peter Levine and the Polyvagal Theory by Dr. Stephen Porges. It also uses traditional wisdom healing approaches in the form of a unique contemporary school of classical qigong focused on Virtue - The Dao. This school has successfully distilled, synthesized and integrated an efficient and direct approach (translated as Wisdom Ability) by Dr. Ming Pang.
Dialectical Inquiry® investigates and heals the cognitive effects of the wounds of separation at the level of consciousness (awareness). This investigation benefits from many classical influences, among them the tibetan Bön (brought to the west by Georges Gurdjieff through Fritz Perls and formally instituted within psychology by Richard Schwarz) and the Hunyuan Theory of Entirety first posited by Dr. Ming Pang in the late 20th century. It also benefits from the impartial understanding and realization of basic truths resulting from the daily enjoyment of Wisdom Ability since 2006.
