The Raphaelite Work
The Raphaelite Work supports a journey into the worlds of
transformation and healing, working with an approach towards self-discovery
that allows one to live life more fully and abundantly. There is an
understanding in the Raphaelite Work that there are many ways in which we
experience life, and in this work we bring our awareness to the language of
what the Raphaelite Work identifies as the five domains: the physical, mental,
emotional, moral, and spiritual parts of ourselves. When we bring this
awareness to the study of our life’s experiences with no demands or
preconceived agendas to follow, a natural intelligence may begin to arise,
informing and guiding us. The Raphaelite Work also uses breathing practices,
and a process called inquiry and reflection, to further a new understanding of
self and our relationships with others.
There are three components of the
Raphaelite Work: the Raphaelite Work hands-on healing session, the Raphaelite
Work One-to-One session and a Raphaelite Work Retreat.
I. The Raphaelite Work Hands-on Healing Session
The Raphaelite Work healing session begins with a pre-session interview,
orienting both the client and the practitioner to a place in which to begin the
session. While the client is fully dressed and lying on a massage table or a
futon on the floor, the Raphaelite Work practitioner gently places his/her
hands on specific points of the client’s body relating to the elements: earth,
water, fire, air, and ether. These points are used to bring about a discussion
of any sensations, thoughts, or feelings that might arise. Following the
hands-on session is a post-session interview; this time is spent helping to
integrate the information from the five domains, to look at how the energy is
flowing, and to recognize whatever changes may have occurred within the
II. The Raphaelite Work One-to-One Healing
The client and the One-to-One Facilitator begin a discussion centering on
the client’s relationship to his/her experiences of the five domains. Through a
healing presence in a One-to-One session, the client will find clarity
developing in his/her understanding of self and his/her relationship to others.
The One-to-One Facilitator, listening from his/her heart, using love and
compassion, and allowing the client to feel at ease, will use breath, and
inquiry, resulting in a gentle, non-directive, non-judgmental atmosphere. The
Facilitator does not give advice, share opinions, or become personally involved
in the client’s process.
Raphaelite Work Retreat
With the guidance of a Raphaelite Work Retreat Guide, the Raphaelite Retreat
offers time and space to be by oneself, exploring in depth the language and the
flow of energies in the five domains. While on retreat, one leaves behind the
day-to-day activities of life, and is supported in turning one’s attention
inward. The Raphaelite Work Retreat deepens and clarifies the relationship with
one’s self and life, offering a greater clarity in dealing with everyday
problems. Through using practices of breath, and presence, and in working
within the five domains, a new sense of self develops and a new feeling of joy
may emerge. A five day retreat is recommended; however, retreats of shorter
duration may be arranged.
