You are warmly invited to
an Alchemy of Presence workshop
‘This Fine Sorrow’
with Duncan Mackintosh
‘You that seeking healing of this fine sorrow…
Be truthful now
See yourself as you plainly are
You have a hidden wound
And this is no time for posing…
When inward tenderness finds that secret hurt
The rock will crack and ahh-
Let the soul emerge’ – Rumi
The ‘Alchemy of Presence’ springs fundamentally from the recognition that there is a profound impulse in Being to ‘remedy’ the most ancient and subtle wound human beings suffer - the sense of separation seemingly inherent in embodiment.
A healing grace can work in the soul, when there is a willingness to allow direct contact
with the truth of our actual experience in the context of deepening into Presence.
When two or more are gathered, this field of loving intelligence is enhanced
and works with us- gently, tenderly- exactly as we are, to unfold and reconnect us.
In this day workshop we will gently enquire into our direct experience, allowing our mutual presence and dedicated attention to create the crucible for this subtle alchemy.
We will also explore other fundamental aspects of this work
that support our deepening and embodiment.
