Beyond Stillness, Module 2 Montespertoli 2017

Beyond Stillness, Module 2 Montespertoli 2017

Beyond Stillness, Module 2 Montespertoli, January 22nd – 25th 2017 Introduction by Mike Boxhall The infinite and the dualistic Manifestations of Infinite Intelligence There is the dualistic level and there is Intelligence, which we say is absolute. The Intelligence is that which underlies and creates the Universe, you might call it God or whatever you like, but it is infinite. Which leads me to the thought that if God is infinite how can I be separate from the infinite? Either…

A few notes to the Breath of Life Conference (UK) 2017

A few notes to the Breath of Life Conference (UK) 2017

from Mike Boxhall RCST.,FCSTA. Embodied Presence: There are many levels…………………… I have been practising as a therapist of some kind or another for the last 45 years and what follows is a summary of my experience culled from approximately 30 three or four day courses per year with groups of from 18 to 60 people on a journey to a level of being where there is no pathology. I call this work Embodied Presence. It is said that to be…

Science and Mysticism

Science and Mysticism

1.We can only know what is happening if we limit what is happening to what we know. Can we just be what is happening and not have to know? That would eliminate the limitations and the implications are infinite. What could be the practice that would lead to this state of being. 2. Patently it cannot lie in the intellect as the function of the intellect is to know, analyse, judge, describe, quantify and qualify, describe and conceptualise. All these…

Wisdom

Wisdom

Wisdom When, like the owl, we finally acquire a little wisdom, it is important that it be embodied. To merely put on the trappings and signs of wisdom will fool no-one; unless they are foolish! Foolishness Meditation on its own, however, may not be enough. We should also cultivate conscious awareness. Meditation is not an escape, it is a fully mindful presence. Meditation We need both meditation and the fully embodied presence called wisdom. ————————————————————————————————- For further teachings on meditation…

Mike Boxhall – The Work 2015

Mike Boxhall – The Work 2015

The paper below is addressed to therapists of virtually every hue. It comes out of my work in craniosacral therapy and in psychotherapy, both of which I love. It is not a substitute for whatever it is we practice, it is simply an attempt to examine whether there is a level missing in whatever it is we do and whether there can be a modality for reaching that level. It goes back a long way but my original inspiration, as…

Presense in Stillness – reply March 2014

“In reply to the Presence in Stillness article, a longstanding student sends the following, which delights me as I am aware of her struggles to find stillness first in herself.” Dear Mike, I enjoyed reading your latest article on your website, it is great. You mention on one page about listening from your heart when working with a client if your head is busy .Well I thought I would give you some feedback from a treatment I gave to a…

Presence in Stillness

Presence in Stillness

Presence in Stillness with Mike Boxhall September 6-9 2013 Cowdray Hall. UK. I thought this might be useful. It is a transcript taken from a recording made by Nicola Shields at a course in England last September. Whilst it is not exactly verbatim, it is a very good summary of what was said and seems to me to express, very well, the teachings as they are now appearing. Do feel free to submit any comments or suggestions via the Response…

Mike Boxhall, interviewed by Roger James RCST

Mike Boxhall, interviewed by Roger James RCST

Although Mike Boxhall is well into his eighties, elderly is the last word that comes to mind to describe him. He spends about three weeks a month travelling the world and teaching an extraordinary variety of people, among them doctors, monks and lawyers. Talking beside a log fire in his Sussex flint cottage, we found we shared one common line of thought: a belief in the existence and power of the Spirit, but a long-lasting inability to define it, simply…

Spring is Coming

Spring is Coming

Spring is coming and it is time to think about coming out of hibernation.  At least that is my sense of things. The black dog, which I seem to experience around the turn of the year – and my birthday – seems to have lifted and I can return to my normal and, I believe, natural optimism. I feel a bit inadequate talking about depression, as part of what I teach is, that to focus on a pathology, whatever it may…

A Happy New Year

A Happy New Year

To all members. A HAPPY NEW YEAR In the next few days and before January is over, I am hoping to get out a little piece to start the New Year going. Perhaps it will be the beginning of a new book of some kind. Just to get things going and to encourage people to “talk”, I am posting two pictures of the empty chair (click to enlarge). One is an image with which you will be fairly familiar, it…

“The Surrender of Limitations”. Delivered to the Third Congress of the Craniosacral Association of Spain. 7th October 2012

“The Surrender of Limitations”. Delivered to the Third Congress of the Craniosacral Association of Spain. 7th October 2012

The Surrender of Limitations   “Craniosacral Therapy is so many different things to different people at different levels. At its tenderest it is a journey taken by two or more people to a level of being where there is no pathology.”   We all stand on the shoulders of our predecessors. If we fully acknowledge that we are able to continually reach higher, to expand further. Only, though if we can avoid hubris and thinking that we have invented or…
