was just called upstairs to the bathroom where my daughter was in the
hot bath, as she had something "important" to discuss with me.
started off by telling me off for hurting her feelings the other day
when I had apparently laughed when she said she believed in some of the
Roman gods. I said I was truly sorry and asked which ones she believed
in and she said, "the female ones".
She then started getting
very emotional and for a moment it was as if her name sake was speaking
through her. She told me that she wanted to be free, to climb out of
the window like Pom Pom and see mountains and wildness (as she called
it). She wanted to feel like an animal "which I am", she said. She said
she wanted to "go home", to see wild boar and squirrels running wild,
like in "Tenji's house". Tenji was her best friend in Italy, the son of
great friends of ours who had a house in the countryside, surrounded by
olive groves, grape vines, fig trees and a forest where they could go
on adventures, and dip their feet in a stream. She said she was fed up
of the flatness, the houses, after houses, after houses, the cafes, the
museums. She wanted to "go back to nature" and go home.
her that was exactly why I do what I do, why I'm becoming an
ecopsychologist and why I believe so strongly with her... but it was
hard to make her see it.
I wanted to share it with you, as
gobsmacked as I am, as I do think this proves once again that children
cannot be convinced. They just learn to hide their feelings. And
eventually they grow up like us, and the layers of hiding get so thick
they forget what those feelings once were. Man, I don't want that to
happen to her. She's not happy. She was actually crying, even though I
was trying to "convince" her that we're only here temporarily, and "but
you love your school?"... as if that matters more.... the words of a
fool who herself knows better herself!
"I'd read the
chapter earlier and was waiting for the right opportunity to present
itself to do the exercise. As my ex-partner's family were watching
motorcycles on a dirt track I could feel the wind chilling me as I
stood there and interpreted this as a call to connect with nature. I
left people behind and walked along the road. An entrance to a small
wooded area caught my attention and after asking permission I entered.
My request was answered by feeling more energized. I asked both
questions "Who are you and who am I without a name?" as I
explored this area, noticing particularly the
disturbance left behind by horses with droppings on the group and the
bark of trees distorted. The answer to both was clear. I am you and you
are me. We are one. We are alive. We are life. I felt such a connection
to the area and as I lifted my head I watched the tree branches wave in
the wind and wanted to feel this. I left the wooded area and returned
to the road and started jogging. I was an expression of joy and with
every movement of my body I could feel our energy building within. The
feeling of coldness I'd had earlier disappeared and the wind became
attractive and loving instead of cold and harsh. I was
present in the moment with my senses of movement, gravity, temperature,
pressure, color and sound strongly activated.

My experience reinforced this. Even as I type I am conscious that I
exist only in this moment where my attention is on what I am writing,
how I am sitting and the environment around me. What I am writing about

This activity has re-educated and re-enforced that my
body in connection with nature knows exactly what is best for it. It is
its own best mentor and healer. It has confirmed a 4 legged feeling

worn down by nature-conquered stories of human manipulation of health.
How might this activity be used to enhance my practice of coaching in
grief and loss?
activity could be used as a way of identifying self after loss. Who we
are is challenged by loss and this activity would provide a means to
help individuals reconnect with themselves, see themselves in a
different light and start the process of transforming grief and loss.

9-legged thinking to ask powerful questions about their experience and
how it relates to their loss deepening their experience.

experience transformation far quicker due to the 9-legged communication
