a revealing interview with Gregg Westwood by MysticMag

Throughout time all cultures have practiced therapeutic traditions to quiet the mind, reclaim lost aspects of the self and move toward a vitality that is our birthright as human beings on this planet. Depth Integration is the blend of ancient practices with modern healing techniques that supports an intuitive journey using the breath, the body and a vision of integrated health and wellness.

Your body is your guide in this unfolding of your soul’s journey.

Gregg’s healing work teaches you approaches that support a deeper relationship with self and Source; learning to feel safe enough to feel your feelings and by experiencing them fully, moving into deeper states of self-compassion, creativity, authentic power, essential truth and in accessing your unique purpose.

The ability to live more in these deeper states of being will
dramatically improve your life experience.

Foundation

Essential Truth

Society can disconnect us from our true spiritual nature.
We find the most truthful ways to live our lives when we listen to the body- that Internal Peacefulness.

“Practice is the interest, the love, the drive, the tendency, the movement, to be as authentic as possible, to be as real as possible.”
– A. H. Almaas, Runaway Realization: Living a Life of Ceaseless Discovery

Learn to develop approaches of surrendering to your higher self:
What is my deepest truth?
What paradigms am I ready to release?
What positive paradigms am I willing to adopt and empower myself with?

Unique Purpose

Discover your Value – Gifts

Depth Integration supports each individual in accessing and creatively expressing his/her true nature, unique creative abilities and
own special contribution to this life.
Discover your unique voice.
How does your heart want to contribute to the world?
How can you live your most loving, adventurous, child-like, imaginative, heart-centered life?
Why am I here?

“Our greatest wish for you is to discover what you most love doing — and spend more and more time doing it. To enjoy the love, abundance, and success it creates. To bring it forth so it serves you and the rest of the world.”
– Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks

Creativity

“When you are in the field of creativity you lose track of time. Only flow exists.”

-Deepak Chopra

The process of discovering creative ways to sustain the experience of flow is the primary focus of the practice of depth integration. Allowing full expression is the key to releasing what is blocking flow in our lives. When given the choice between expression and repression, choose expression. When we return to flow, we return to our true nature.

Creative expression is not only healing for the individual, it is healing for those who witness, as well.

Services

Tools to integrate deep experiences into your daily lives and actions. These deeper states of consciousness create the space for something else, healing energies to enter the body and soul.

“When you shut down emotion, you are also affecting your immune system, your nervous system. So, the suppression of emotion, which is a survival strategy, then becomes a source of physiological illness later on.”
– Gabor Mate

Meditation:

The Practice of Presence and
connecting with Source – Witnessing

One of meditation’s many benefits is the development of the Witness. The development of the Witness or Observing Self is essential to growth. The ability to observe our thoughts and feeling and not be overcome with them, allows us to be more heart-centered in our expressions and actions, thus living a more authentic life.

You will learn to be able to witness, but not be fully enmeshed in your emotional process. That is what makes healing possible.

Learn to relax into uncertainty, trust and surrender to what is.

By just sitting at the very source, not moving anywhere, a tremendous force arises, a transformation of energy into love and light into greater life, into compassion, into creativity. It can take many forms, but first you have to learn how to be at the source. Then the source will decide where your potential is. You can relax at the source, and it will take you to your very potential.

Mindful Breathing:

Our breathing patterns reflect the state of our mind. As we consciously slow our breathing, our minds slow down as well. It is then when we can hear the infinite wisdom of our heart and be moved and led by our soul.

Learning to breathe from our abdomen can help calm and center
our emotions and minds. Inhaling and exhaling at the same rate can create balance.
Where we direct our breath brings healing awareness to that part of our body. Altering our breathing by taking faster and deeper breaths can support deeper expression and the releasing of emotional and physical blocks.

“The easiest way to raise your vibration is to relax your body. The most essential way to relax your body is to slow your breath. The most effective way of slowing your breath is by loving your own heart. One ‘I love you’ at a time, your breath is inspired into a slower pace, which reminds the body to feel safe enough to relax, as your vibration elevate into higher frequencies of light. This is the heart of transformation.”
– Matt Kahn

Inquiry:

Transcend your former beliefs

“To contact the deeper truth of who we are, we must engage in some activity or practice that questions what we assume to be true about ourselves.”
– A. H. Almaas

Through Inquiry, the Witness asks:
What is my true nature?
Why am I feeling this?
Where does this feeling come from?
What does this mean?
What can I learn from this?

Body (Somatic) Awareness:

Authentic Movement

“When the movement was simple and inevitable, not to be changed no matter how limited or partial, it became what I called ‘authentic’ – it could be recognized as genuine, belonging to that person.”
– Mary Whitehouse

A common misconception is if we bring our awareness inside, we will feel the restrictions and pain of our body. Instead we are able to connect with the Limitless Body, which is spacious and where all creativity begins. Deeply engrained patterns are not changed by rationalization, but rather with an embodied experience and connections. The deepest growth must occur in the body. Rationalization or wishing to grow, only takes us so far.

Breath guided movement leads to full creative expression, release and authentic integration of deep experiences in our bodies allows love to transform us.

You will learn how to track sensations and follow the impulses that want to move to release, express and embody.
Learn how embodied mindfulness restores your personal power.
Learn to trust your gut instincts and intuitive wisdom.
Learn how to integrate movement into action.

“As long as we can stay with the not knowing, the knowing that emerges will be deeper.”
– Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

Shamanic Work:

Ritual – The Great Mystery – Life is sacred

“The shamanic path is really an invitation to you, the artist, to create your masterpiece…to use everything in your life as a brush to paint your own picture of personal freedom”
– Don Jose Ruiz

The creative journeys of shamanic paths lead us to our most healing practice –
that of our creativity. Some say it is imagining and yet when we experience loss, death we know there is another dimension that we can’t see with our minds but we feel with our hearts. This ego reality is such a fear and lack-based take on reality. When we can surrender to being lived by presence, which is much larger than our minds, we find truth.

“Shamanic healing is a journey. It involves stepping out of our habitual roles, our conventional scripts and improvising a dancing path.”
– Gabrielle Roth

 

Whether it is the spacious feeling from the intense heat of the sweat lodge, or after the acupuncture needles are removed or at the end of a yoga class, or the expansion after breathing and moving fully, true healing needs an altered state to occur.

Everything begins in dreamtime

***
From my experiences in the sweat lodge and tepee, I learned that each person in the circle has a sacred and vital purpose. And without each person’s unique contribution the circle is not whole. We are all part of something much greater than ourselves alone.

It is our heart-centered communications that arise from slowing down that will bring back healing compassion into our lives and our relationships.
We are the remedy to the fragmentation of our culture and the ever increasing speed and traumatic situations we find in our daily lives.
