Kai Chi Do Float
During Kai Chi Do at the beach yesterday, when Charles took the group into the Water element, he decided to literally take them into the waves.
I was inspired to take the whole group out into the ocean. Holding hands, everyone leaned back into the ocean and relaxed, doing connected breathing. And floated, supported by the water and totally surrendering. People experienced feelings of profound letting go – letting go of resistance. It brought such a deep serenity. One person actually went to sleep while floating on the gentle waves of the ocean, buoyed by the water and our holding hands.
A lot of people had insights – They saw the meaning of their current experiences. Instead of seeing their past as a burden, they felt grateful for everything they’ve gone through in life, that brought them to this moment of realization. They had the insight that it was all necessary to bring them to this point.
And people had the realization that they are not alone. They felt nurtured by the water and by the group. People said they felt safe letting go at that level, where they could relax so deeply. When you are floating, you just totally let go.
Surrendering to Nature was so powerful. It was really inspiring for me. It opened my mind to being able to facilitate the process in Water in a whole new way.
That was my bright spot. Just seeing the possibility of helping people to surrender in a new way.
