SELF INQUIRY DESCRIPTION:
Satsang / satsanga / satsangam is a word that comes from Sanskrit, meaning to “associate with true people” or to be “in the company of true people”. I run public and private Visual Satsangs in the non-dual (oneness) tradition … with a modern visual twist.
A traditional process to ‘do’ and ‘be’ in Satsang is “Self Inquiry”, an ancient practice of meeting “what is” and “what is arising”. It’s a way of interacting with personal and collective Consciousness, and working out the bugs.
Self Inquiry can also unfold in one-to-one private coaching sessions.
As a practical Visual Coach, I really love the efficiency and the heart of Self Inquiry, as many of the other modalities I practice can also naturally find their way into Self Inquiry (Visioning, Strategy and Action, Parts Work, Voice Dialogue, Polarities, Constellations, etc.).
It’s been my experience that Self Inquiry is a safe and effective way to zero right in on what is most ‘up’ for a person, help them meet and welcome that (no matter what it is), and then follow the lead of Consciousness to what is next.
Occasionally Consciousness needs some help with remembering that it is all mighty Consciousness! So as a Facilitator, I gently do my best to empathize, soothe, tickle, encourage, invite, and at times hold firm boundaries with Consciousness, as it connects with us humans on Earth!

I do Self Inquiry with maps and sometimes without (just freeform with no template).

SELF INQUIRY VIDEOS:
It can take a bit for our Minds (intellect) to understand what Self Inquiry is and what can occur within it, and how helpful that can be. Self Inquiry, because we are dealing with the personal and collective subconscious, often communicates in feelings, sensations, symbols and metaphors. This can be challenging at first if you have a strongly dominant Thinker and Doer (awwwww, kiss the sweet Mind!). However, the more you are around Self Inquiry, the more your Mind begins to recognize and communicate with your Heart and Belly too (other innate intelligences) and a beautiful and useful partnership occurs.
Below are few recorded Self Inquiries from Satsangs or from individuals sessions. Follow your intuition on which ones to view. Great for parallel processing. Many thanks to our volunteers who graciously allow their Self Inquiries to be recorded and shared!
