The Piraha People of the Amazon

Coquelicot's work has evolved through her more than 20 years of experience of being a minister with the Association & Integration of the Whole Person (AIWP). To every session, Coquelicot brings her intuition and vast knowledge base. Then she gets out of the way to let something else arise; she makes room for a larger knowledge, and invites grace to enter. Coquelicot has a capacity for deep listening, listening beyond the limits of her personality and academic learning. By dropping and melting into something much larger than herself, she becomes simultaneously a student and a teacher, a facilitator and a catalyst. From there, she supports people to free themselves from the internal obstacles that block their innate ability to access this source directly.

Manhunt in the Desert - Chapter 31

This Anxiety in your troubled self
Is a visitor from Beyond. After being attentive to it, After listening to everything,
You withdraw into indifference and hypocrisy. You say, "It ain't going to work."
You become tense
And boil inwardly against Anxiety,
And face it
With an impenetrable look. You lie through your teeth Saying, "It ain't going to work,"
And enter into the Yogic posture again, Raising a China Wall of defense; Holding on to what you know,
With a harsh impenetrable  Shield of indifference.
You have lost Truth
And gone into the valley of falsehoods. You are doing everything willfully. You create fog
To cloud the reality of things,
And go into Yogic posture,
Elevating yourself into a haven
Of artificial peace.
You do not listen at all,
And take many forms of violence, Some gross, others subtle,
Still others so subtle
That you yourself
Sit baffled, and trapped.
A hoodlum sitting cross-legged, Defiant, and protected
By tricks, poses, and super talk. You lie with a smiling face, And hate with a gesture of love. Each step one takes with you One needs to be watchful. Your act of openness
Is a supreme act of deceit; Your act of friendship
Is a concealed weapon.
You create a semblance of truth, And rob the Forest of Life
Of its shiny fruit.
Then you take another shape, Yet another form of violence. In the Yogic posture
Your forms of violence are so many, That unless one meets you,
One does not know violence,  In all the forms,
Which baffle and deceive truth.
Your existence has. become
Like the outer cover of a fruit.
One peels and throws away the cover, And feasts
On the juice of life inside.
If you had known,
You would have thrown away
This impenetrable cover,
And discovered the juice of life instead. You would not have used this cover Even as a joke.
You have instead hidden the juice, And toughened the cover.
You must know the Truth,
That the inside of the cover
Has begun to rot.
You must know the experience
Of this feeling visiting you.
You are surrounded by Anxiety;
It calls upon you
To do the final act:
"Tear off this cover
Unfold the Yogic posture, And stand up
To know the face of this world.
"You must stand
And must bear personally,
The heavy burden  
Of this Anxiety visiting you.      
You must pick up the burden  From this innocent Earth, And bear it upon your body.
"You have to carry
This Stone of Anxiety.
Since Anxiety is your creation
And free the Earth_
Of your burden.
You want to roll over
This Stone of Anxiety
To others;
To animals and plants.
What do they have to do with it? They should not be subject
To your creation.
So, be gentle and bear
The consequence of your creation. You have been cold and cruel
To everyone who has known you. Even the ants have heard
Of your terrible reputation.
So, be gentle today
And bear the Anxiety
Visiting you in the Yogic posture. If you do not bear this Anxiety  You will hurt everyone."
So, do as the Voice says,
Pick up this Stone of Anxiety
And carry it,  on your person. You say to the Voice:
"I want to carry this burden  Through the Yogic trick.
I want to carry the mountain  On the fingertip,
Balancing it well
On the central nerve of light."
That which weighs on you
Is so heavy,
That your whole body  Trembles and sweats Under its fear.
So cut the nonsense out, Do the soulful act,
And spare the world  Of the consequences  Of your refusal.
The Voice says to you, "Listen!" But you turn the deaf ear of Yoga, And roll the Stone of Anxiety, Over to the Voice instead.
Good heavens you are so closed. In this lotus posture
You have become a complete hypocrite. You have even developed anger
Against the inner Voice.
You have become somewhat
Like that rat in the well.
You accuse the Voice of Truth
Of deserting you,
Of not offering you,
What you think is your birthright. You say to the Voice of Truth:
"Do you think you are even handed?" The Voice feels temporarily suppressed But not silenced.
Now you want to stand straight,
And look at the place,
From where the Voice comes,
At your Maker, angrily.
You want to stand straight and look Him  Clearly in the face, with accusation.                                                                             .
Let you be clearly warned,
Since He knows you
He will shout at you.

Coquelicot teaches didactically, experientially and by example. She brings to each session a lifetime's worth of tools, exercises and practices that I use at home to further my own development. Her genius combines intuition, sensing and a comprehensive knowledge of human emotional and biological development. What I've learned from her has not only given me a deeper understanding of my own patterns, dynamics and behaviors, it's also enhanced my understanding of others. I am a far more compassionate person thanks Coquelicot. In fact to the degree that I am a more evolved being in any regard, Coquelicot was instrumental in my transformation.

"Dear God:

Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life. Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind. Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
Dear God,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life, all of the 'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough. Amen."
