  Cultivating our wholeness—West Facet of Self.

A Hunting Party

Hunting Party

Sometimes has a greater chance

Of flushing love and God

Out into the open

Than a Warrior

My father-in-law Michael died after a long illness during the summer. We all miss him greatly.  One of his many gifts which come to mind as I write about the next soul day is his use of the gift of imagination.  He played with his grandchildren with such joy, creativity and delight, always able to enter into their magical world and tuning into their needs. 

In this soul day, the West Facet of Self, participants are invited to continue or begin to tap into their own astonishing personal resources and gifts.  The day will take place beginning at Ballyconnell beach, and walking slowly towards Knocklane Promontory Fort, the most western point of North Sligo.  It is visible as a large hill, jutting out into the Atlantic from miles around. 

Sunset, the conclusion of the day as the sun sinks beneath the horizon of the ocean, the season of Autumn, ending of the Summer, leaves falling and plants decaying.  This sets the scene to look at the West Facet, the dimension of our wholeness which Plotkin describes as the ‘muse beloved’.  Dreams, mystery, magic, shadow, darkness, dying are all words associated with the West Facet.  In this Facet, we call on our ‘muse beloved’ to help us with major decision-making.  We invite our imagination to come alive again in a culture where imagination is often not valued.

“Deep imagination is an indispensable faculty for discovering our truth about everyday life, no less essential than observing, thinking and feeling.”  Imagination reveals what we may never have detected with our senses or emotion or by deduction.

In this dimension of our innate wholeness, questions are more important than answers, curiosity valued over knowledge, romance extends to nature in all its fullness as opposed simply to other human beings.  It is the place of change and transformation, a place of unexpected discoveries. 

 

This day will include input, gentle walking, a mixture of sharing and silence.  All you need to participate is to have the soul of a searcher, an open heart and a willingness to engage with the elements.
