The embodied living cycle : psychospiritual development through presence, guidance, service and trust by Jay Fields ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This study explores the Embodied Living Cycle (ELC), an emerging relational and experiential model for psychospiritual development within the field of integral transformative education. Based on Erich Schiffman's (1996) approach to hatha yoga, and in dialogue with the theories of Martin Buber (1958), deep ecology, participatory spirituality, and integral transformative practice, the study demonstrates the implications of the ELC in light of the current crises of ecology and consciousness. Grounded in evidence from the personal experience of the author and of five study participants with the components of the ELC (Disconnection, Presence, Guidance, Service and Trust), the results of the qualitative heuristic analysis of the data demonstrate common themes of the ELC, including (1) the need for psychological work to balance spiritual practice; (2) integral transformative practices and being in nature support Presence, and Presence increases one's love for Spirit; (3) Guidance is a physical and emotional feeling in addition to a distinct inner voice; (4) Service is challenging because of expectations and judgments from interpersonal relationships, and; (5) Trust is a feeling of completeness that increases one's sense of purpose. The study suggests that the ELC's ability to facilitate one's experience of love, trust and purpose decreases suffering and promotes the personal and collective realization of Absolute Truth
