RECAPITULATION

The spring equinox is a good time energetically to take a step and move forward in a new direction. It is also a very good time to make the space where that step can happen. That comes from clearing out the past.

One of the best techniques that I have come across is the life review, also known as recapitulation. While not difficult, it is time consuming and in fact boredom in the practice is one of the main reasons for people stopping. But to go ahead and finish a review of our life not only rewinds our tape- makes space for something else, but will help us to see why we do what we do and think as we think- as various small events in our long ago past are brought up and seen as the start of what became many of our habits and patterns.

 

I already have a 3 part article on recap in the articles section, but wanted to remind people that they are there for those interested in adding this technique to their current inner work
