was a little scared, and kept putting her hand half up, but not high enough to actually attract attention. I wanted to help her raise her hand (the rescuer in me), but in the endshe got noticed. The whole situation was perfect for me, because there was something I was meant to see (of all the people who could have been directly in front of me, it washer!). Finally, Leonard asked her what her problem was. The woman was terribly distraufght, telling of how childhood was a nightmare. She began to sob deeply. Leonardinvited her out the front, and allowed her to express what she felt (the whole process was incredibly loving and gentle). Then the little girl inside her started raging against what happened during the Cultural Revolution (a hellish social movement started by Mao Ze Dong, lasting a whole decade, 1966-76). As she allowed the pain to surface, sheraged about how everything around her was darkness and pain and suffering, andnothing was safe.People started to shift a little uncomfortably in their seats, as you can imagine, becauseall talk of this period in Chinese history is effectively banned in China, right to this day.Soon the woman began to rage with full fury against the government and theCommunist Party for the living hell they had created. I was deeply moved by hercourage. She simply let loose her murdrous wrath, expressing what the wounded part of herself had been wanting to “do” for 35 years – to kill and destroy, to take revengeagainst those who had hurt her and those she loved.Leonard then helped her bring that wounded part of herself into the present, which is so vital for healing (As long as we are stuck in the pain, the suffering and the blame, wecannot heal). The purpose is to allow the pain and its accomanying story to surface, butto bring to deeper understanding that the story is not real anymore. It is only the painthat is real. The past is gone, and only the present moment is extant.I must say I was deeply moved by the woman’s personal courage.The next morning I was walking to breakfast, and the woman "just happened" to becoming out of her villa at the same time as me. So I started talking to her, and told herhow brave she was, and how China needed more people like her who could face the paininside themselves and express it responsibly. She agreed. She told me that she hadtalked to a friend beforehand and decided it was OK that she brought it up.The whole workshop made me realise that there are people in China, many in fact, whoare now willing to make the spiritual journey. Other Chinese people I spoke with told methat these kinds of ideas are booming in China now, and in the last year or two it hasreally taken off. One aspect of this is that life coaching using spiritual or intuitiveconsciousness is now increasingly in demand. I was told that there were many middleclass people in there 30s and 40s who are well off, but who are asking themselves why they are not happy and fulfilled.During my time at the workshop I was invited to give public talks and workshops atseveral different venues. During my vacation I also met with another women who has agroup of about 40 alternative practitioners in Beijing. She invited me to do some work with her group.
