Caterpillars and Butterflies

Jyoshin Clay

We habitually locate ourselves, or rather our sense of self, at the center of our own story, our own narrative, the center of our drama. Often when people come to practice, there is a sense that giving up our story is part of the task of the practitioner and fear of losing ourselves arises. However, sharing our stories and narratives-of-self actually serve to increase intimacy and to see the fluidity of self.

This talk was given Sunday, August 20. The talk wasn’t recorded, but Jyoshin has shared her notes – please see the next post.
