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.


In the Chrysalis / Crucible
Coquelicot Rudiak-Gilland  Spring 1993

Round cell eyes ............................  straining, squinting
To focus on something radiant
Felt, but not quite seen.
Nuclei urged outward by their own longing Out of the safety of their cells
Bursting through "permanent" "necessary" walls Containing everything they knew they needed to live
Sure they will not survive,
They sacrifice themselves anyway
In pursuit of the sacred........................................ Themselves.
A choiceless choice.
Magnetic pulls create continuous surges
Spawning arrhythmic tides of chaos and reorganization.
Old membranes and structures Rupture and die.
Uncertain/certain truths become illusions. Each new forming disintegrates into chaos Becoming new form.
Nothing is stable .................................................  or constant.
Probing and searching for answers or solid ground, I wake up continuously to THERE IS NONE.
Attempts to reach through time and space are unfruitful, And I realize,
Intervening disappears. There is nothing to do.
Fall away into nothing yet known.
Past and future limniskate in the present in an unorientable way, And I release myself to something new
Becoming out of time.

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."
