Do any of these scenarios seem familiar?
You are coming into midlife, and feel a sense of unnamed loss. Work, relationships, recreation, the things that used to sparkle with pleasure now seem jaded and meaningless. You feel empty inside and wonder whether life is now over for you.
Disconnection from nature:
A fantastic holiday takes you to the sea, bush, mountains or lake. Your spirit soars. You feel relaxed, open and free, just the way you love to be. But on your return, life closes in. You can’t afford another holiday right now, and without getting away it feels impossible to get that sense of freedom back again.
Another growth phase:
You relish the adventure of discovering what lies around the next corner. Your life has been filled with growth. But you are going through a new phase where satisfaction with the old ways is waning. You sense that something more awaits you, but don’t know how to find it.
You are in your late fifties, sixties or seventies, and health problems are starting to show up. Your energy is not what it was. When you think about physical decline, you feel rather depressed. The more you focus on your body the worse you feel, because in fact you are focussing on the very thing that brings you down.
Integrating spirituality with daily life:
You have a spiritual practice, which is bringing much meaning into your life. But you are having trouble integrating peak experiences into daily existence. You are seeking a greater level of integration.
You live in the southern hemisphere, and feel alienated by the northern hemisphere festivals that have been imposed on the calendar of the year: Christmas in summer, Easter in autumn and Halloween in spring — they all feel out of joint somehow. You would like to find a sense of alignment with the seasons, but don’t know where to start.
The need to refresh your purpose:
You feel that life has become mundane and routine, lacking in dimension. Your mind is cluttered and you feel constantly tired. You long to find breathing space, but there is always so much to do. Every day feels the same. Your sense of purpose has dwindled.
