Our Philosophy

The 5 Truths

These truths create a worldview that aligns with every training and every exercise that Mindlight offers. They are the foundation that holds up all of our teachings.  

1.There is a basic goodness to existence.  It can be seen in anything with enough perspective. It is exemplified in nature, the cosmos, and in our own bodies. It is extended through human kindness and creativity. 

2. We are all connected. Through this ever-present wellbeing we are connected. We the humans, plants, and animals, stones, animate, and inanimate. Our stories and our feelings are all of the same prima materia that is wellbeing, God, Love. 

3. We are Infinitely Powerful. Through connection and alignment with wellbeing we are infinitely powerful. Through our connection to others, our connection to wellbeing--which is deepened through service and goodwill for others--we access more and more capacity to create. 

4. All feelings are beneficial. We experience some things that we like and some that we don’t like. Both of these experiences create expansion within us. We become more of what we are through the experience and integration of polarity. 

5. Our external worlds is given by our inner world. Our internal worlds are an invitation to the external world. Our thoughts and emotions conscious and unconscious write the script, and our life shows up to act it out. 

The Map of the Human Experience

When we experience the world, we are actually experiencing the world inside of us. The human experience is rooted in our internal experiences, beliefs, thoughts, and emotions, and then is mirrored in our relationships. All of our teachings are anchored in this orientation.

Transformational  Components

The Separation

To heal, the walled off aspects of ourselves must be addressed. Just like a physical wound, emotional and psychological wounds need to be tended to, touched on, gently opened up. This is done by bringing the trauma to the surface in very small doses so that you are never overwhelmed.

Friendly Attention

At the same time as we open up the wound, we greet it with kindness. Pushing it away might be our instinct, but when we allow it to be there and allow ourselves to feel whole at the same time, the wound heals. When you can feel wellbeing and the wound you are healing.

The Body

The body is where emotional information is stored. Effective psychological processes can be permanent if they are communicated to the body. This can be done through breath work, movement, touch or acupressure points.

All of Mindlight's work is to help us remember and experience our wholeness. Sometimes we wall off aspects of ourself because of Trauma or pain. Sometimes we wall ourselves off from the Joy and Brilliance that we are. Transformation happens as we reconnect with all of our parts. 

Here is how we do it.
