During a 2-month stay at Esalen in 2010, I had a couple of sessions with a man named Jules, who seemed to know more about my journey than I did. My curiosity aroused, I asked him about his training: he mentioned a name - Lansing Barrett Gresham - that I googled when I returned home.
A few months later as I was in my first IA class, Lansing came to me at the break to ask how I was doing. I replied, “I know all of the words you’re using, but it’s as if you’re speaking a completely foreign language.” He smiled and said “you’re in the right place”; I heard that a lot that day! As it was with Jules, he seems to know more about me than I do.
Today, the language is becoming increasingly less foreign, but the changes that are occurring in me are proof that I’m in the right place. Although I don’t have the words to describe my experiences, there is definitely a greater awareness within my entire being such that I never could have imagined, and I’m very much looking forward to continuing this lifelong journey.
