The Essence of Intimacy
Essence is the very fabric of our Soul. When we experience our Essence we have the sense of wholeness. In contrast, the lack of contact with our Essence gives us a sense that we have lost our way home, that we have lost our paradise. We are born full of Essence and free of any conditioning. As time passes and childhood programming settles into our system, we gradually lose the connection to our Essence. We then live in a paradoxical state of existence: we are Essence and yet we do not know it.
Essence experienced through the heart radiates through the prism of Love, becoming Essential Love Dimensions, Personal and Impersonal Loves.
In this weekend, we will explore the Essential quality of Intimacy, which is an Impersonal Love. The quality of intimacy is a healing resource for the state of isolation and withdrawal. It is a sense of familiarity, of communion, of being close with our essence, a feeling which envelops and relaxes us like a warm summer night under a starry sky.
