Crucifixion And Resurrection

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: I like sitting up here with you James and there’s sort of a taste for it somewhere, and then there’s a frustration at it too. James: Tell me about the frustration. Q: I can’t f****ng get it! James: How’s that frustration showing up. Try and get wise to the body now. “I can’t f****ng get it.” How is that showing up physically? Q: I suppose now immediately it comes back as a sadness here. (points to the chest) James: Great. There it is. Bring it back. Follow the…

Working With Gritty Sensations

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: I can drop the story momentarily, but there is still sensation. And the sensation is, not constantly, but typically recently, is pretty heavy. James: Great. So we come back to the start again. Simple. Child-like. Here we are. Whatever-we-are. And we notice that whatever-we-are, that’s here, has this quality of being aware. Aware of the visual image, of sounds, smells and tastes, as well as thoughts, feelings and sensations, all coming and going, while this that we are, that is aware, doesn’t come and go, but remains constant…

The difference between Freedom and Self-realisation

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: I read something a couple of weeks ago, and it stayed in my head and I’ve been looking at it, because it was saying there’s a difference between freedom and Self-realisation. They don’t go hand in hand. I think I had a wrong belief or something there. I had always thought, like most people, that Self-realisation is the destination. And yet your approach, which seems to me to be not unique but slightly different, is almost like the Self-realisation bit, which I kind of get – the impersonal…

Gratitude is the flavour of You

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 15 April, 2017 Q: Hearing you say “Thank You” has reminded me of what I’m constantly curious about, which is gratitude. I’m very curious about where it comes from, and where it goes to. Particularly where it goes to. Because I don’t really know. And sometimes I’m really aware of it being a bargaining tool. Sometimes it just arises out of nowhere and just floods and fills and I go, “Where did you come from? And where are you going?” (Silent connecting) James: For me, as this starts to open up and…

The True Ground

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 28 March, 2017 James: I love the image of a sapling, a young tree – the ground is there supporting its growth, so that its branches and leaves can dance with the wind, can be flowing and open. But it’s rooted, it has that stability in which to play, in which to express, in which to reveal its full glory. This ground (the earth) is like a metaphor for the ultimate, true ground – for wholeness. In this human experience we all come from wholeness and then, at a young age, we…

The Hall Of Mirrors

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 28 March, 2017 Q: Hi James: Hi (long, silent connecting) Q: So it’s interesting. I feel like I haven’t offered enough content to have access to this space – the connection. It’s like I have to pay a price, of like: “Where’s all my shadow that I’ve gotta bring up here and show everyone?” So this is not ok. James: Great. Yes. This is ok. You can have it for free. Q: Oh really! Can I have that tenner back?! (lots of laughter in the room) Oh, money’s not an issue, really….

The Need To Make It ‘Right’

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 28 March, 2017 Q: Before the first person came up to sit on the chair, I went through a real dance. I felt so good when I came in – I was so relaxed, and in such a nice space – and then when nobody came up I got in a panic, in a real panic. The heat was rising up as if my head would explode. I always feel a bit uncomfortable when nobody comes up, but never like today. James: That’s interesting. Why is that do you think? Q: I…

Seeking The True Ground

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 18 March, 2017 Q: I realise that what happens for me, in relationships, is that I want the other one to give me the ground, to give me THAT. I don’t know it, but I want the other one to give me THAT. Whatever else the other gives me, I don’t want it. Because I want THAT. And I don’t know what it is, but I want THAT. James: Yes. That’s seeking you’ve just described. It could be another person, it could be a job, it could be money. Whatever it is,…

Trying

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 18 February, 2017 Q: I noticed lately that when I’m going through something, and I try to open up to it, that I do the opposite: somehow I focus on it and it gets worse and worse. For example yesterday we invited somebody to lunch who has a severe illness and it’s getting worse, and I got so tired that I had to leave them and lie down; and afterwards all this guilt came up, ‘I should have given them more.’ And I was sitting with it and it got worse, because…

Describing Discomfort

By | Transcripts, Read

Transcript from a meeting with James Eaton on 18 February, 2017 Q: I’m sitting here to experience the extraordinary uncomfortableness of sitting here. James: Yes. Great. See if you can describe it as it happens. Really get precise. Q: There’s a change in my mouth, in my saliva, there’s tightening in my chest, in my breath, my heart is doing strange things, my belly’s doing strange things, my eyes feel tight. James: Just let it all do whatever it needs to do. Here you are. (silent connecting) Q: There is a sense of wanting to weep. And everything changing and…
