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.
The Lataif are the first manifestations of Essence. They are the texture, the material from which the Soul is made of, our Essential qualities. The word Latifa (singular) in Arabic means the oil that burns in the lamp. These fountains of Essence are located in different parts of our body. They are our innate resources that we come in touch with when we begin to experience ourselves beyond our conditioned mind and ego defenses.
The Green Latifa permeates our system with tenderness, as it opens up our innate capacity for healing. It creates an inner environment in which we gravitate toward natural kindness, humanness, love, compassion and forgiveness. This Essence is the ultimate resource for healing trauma. As we heal, we feel ourselves more and as we feel more we heal even further. The Green Essence functions as a balsam and a lubricant in our system, removing the sense of dryness that we experience when we are overcome with psychological pain. We feel fresh, light and resilient enough to tolerate emotional hurt without feeling devastated. It gives us a sense of self-acceptance and acceptance of others. It also brings a deep surrendering to the heart.
When we lose the connection to the Green Latifa we don’t have any internal Essential protection and as a result we become highly susceptible to being emotionally hurt. We are rendered emotionally and spiritually dry. Our heart turns hard and we lack empathy and compassion.
In this retreat, we will reconnect with the heart of presence, healing and compassion. We will inquire into the psychological issues which block the connection to the Green Essence and how these issues manifest in our body and our life. When not addressed, these issues can even impair our physical health. With our humanness as our guide, we can set out on the path of healing our trauma and embodying our Essence. We turn towards our true sensitivity and heart’s desire.
The weekend will be conducted live in Den Haag and simultaneously over the internet via Zoom, which offers the ability to learn, interact, process from wherever you are located. You will need a computer/smart device with a camera and a good internet connection. We will provide a link with which you can join the online group.
