Receiving Reiki is an invitation to enter a vitalizing process of healing and revelation. As givers, how do we talk to the receivers in order to bear witness to their process without inhibiting it, without injecting ourselves and our biases into it and changing or limiting its course? In the 1980s, psychotherapist David Grove developed a method called Clean Language to engage with clients without subtly influencing them. Clean Language is a way of helping another to stay with an unfolding process, just as it is, or to develop a metaphor for their experience as it is lived. A metaphor invites us to make sense of something by comparing it to something else as opposed to thinking through our experiences and trying to solve our problems outright or make the uncomfortable or unhappy aspects of our life go away. Developing a metaphor, a dynamic engagement, encourages us to embody arising insight and to change moment by moment as the metaphor unfolds. It is a respectful and dedicated way of holding safe space over time.
Marcia and Linda have practiced Clean Language from the early days of their training, but rarely teach it. Clean Language is not intuitive and requires practice. In this workshop you will watch examples of Marcia and Linda using Clean Language in healing sessions and practice this method yourself.
