What is Contemplative Intelligence
Whilst in the life of the intellect ‘contemplation‘ refers to thinking profoundly about something, in the religious life contemplation is a kind of inner vision or seeing, transcendent of the intellect, facilitated by means of practices such as prayer or meditation. To our clients it refers to living an authentic life on purpose and with meaning. Contemplative practice is about ending your own suffering. It is about awareness and conscious involvement in living a good life on this planet. Even if you choose a simple one. Contemplative Intelligence work or therapy if you will, yields a kind of knowing which changes the whole of one’s life. Yep, expect changes physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This movement of heart and mind, ignites a love stronger than anxiety, depression addictions or even death and illuminates the mind with the very splendors of God realization and self actualization.
Contemplation goes through stages from gross to subtle that end in pure knowing and away from limited or retracted consciousness. Healing with Contemplative Intelligence or CQ is a process that basically looks like this, in its simplest form:
Focus your awareness on a thought
Deeper quiet reflection comes in
Intuitive wisdom that is not verbal, visual or auditory is connected to
Formless knowing is what it all about. You can’t see your spirit can you, or your emotions, but we know they are there. Contemplative Intelligence works on connecting all these things together.
Contemplative Practice “rewires” our brains to think non-dually with compassion, kindness, and a lack of attachment to the ego’s preferences. In contemplative prayer we move beyond language to experience ourselves, others and God as Mystery. We let go of our needs that turn into obsessions, to judge, defend, or evaluate, by plugging into the mind of God Consciousness.
In some traditions, one of the focuses of contemplation is the Mahavakyas as described in the Upanishads. It is also a very Christian tradition that we follow. Mark says that “you will find the roots of contemplation in all religious and spiritual traditions. Take yoga for example, it is virtual contemplative intelligence in ecstatic motion!” Yoga means union and that’s what Contemplative Intelligence does. It unifies you with you, then you with others, and then the earth and nature and then with God, in no specific order that is. It is a beautiful healing practice that changes lives from day one. Everyone should learn the art and practice of contemplation today and Healing with Contemplative Intelligence or CQ is available to everyone.
Mark has developed methods of Healing with Contemplative Intelligence or CQ, that are really helping people get out of their minds and their stuckness fast! No one is beyond help and we find that the million year old brain, really has a ton of people trapped in obsessive and panic stricken thinking. It creates a mess over time and eventually people get so lost or confused, and so sick and dis-eased that they eventually seek psychiatric or drug rehab center styled help. It is such a pity that so many people wait for rock bottom!
Contemplative Intelligence is not only for the depressed or anxious among us. It is used as an advanced relaxation technique, similar to meditation or mindfulness. There is no doubt it creates a success mindset that is sustainable – that’s the big difference. Most suggestion or motivation based therapies tend to drop off over time. With Contemplative Intelligence or CQ it becomes a lifestyle and a spiritual journey all at once. Centring Prayer and many mindfulness skills have helped people become more relaxed, more creative in their field and more healthy in body, mind and spirit. The data is out there and you will be hearing more about Healing with Contemplative Intelligence or CQ as the years role by. We teach it as a kind of gym, that is done daily. We do mental and emotional reps. We combine this work with other psychological and body, emotions work and the results are actually mind-blowing and beyond any of our earlier expectations. The work is done online and at our Center.
What we have figured out, after 23 years of learning at, looking into and working with people is one of our main goals to get out there – DON’T STAY STUCK! We find it incredibly heart-breaking that so many people live for years or even half or almost all of their lives with depression, borderline, addictions, anxiety, personality issues and many other emotional and psychological issues that make the quality of their lives really low. People sit on chat forums and complain about their conditions, sure, but they seem to have lost the hope of healing and making their conditions much better. Which we believe can be done, all or if not all, then almost all the time.
We have never met someone who was willing and open to treatment that hasn’t become more healthy and well and benefited from healing treatment. Not one. We live by the notion that you get what you ask for, but only every time! SO it really does work if you work it. If you don’t work it, yes, you will more than likely stay stuck for longer. There is always hope and miracles happened daily, and by the drove at our Healing Center – people who haven’t seen it, are not aware of how radical and freely available healing can be today. It is everywhere, in many forms. So don’t stay stuck, connect and get the help for the depression or the addiction or the anxiety or what have you. These issues are all more common and inter-related than you may think.
