Open Awareness: Holding The Space for Transformation in Coaching, Therapy and Life!

“Holding The Space” is a metaphorical container for the transformative interaction between a practitioner and client. It is also a practical way in which to dis-identify from the stressful, fearful and harmful content of the mind.

In this presentation, I propose a unique mode of perception ideally suited to Holding The Space, called “Open Awareness”. Noticeable aspects of Open Awareness include: mindfulness, receptivity, empathy, compassion, interconnectedness, transpersonal perspective, resourcefulness and calmness.

The simple Open Awareness skills described in this presentation may help to counteract the negative consequences of chronic tunnel awareness – induced by excessive use of mobile devices – the digital zombie generation.

Open Awareness is easy to learn and apply, yet profound enough to expand and evolve consciousness through regular practice. In this presentation Jevon Dangeli will introduce a few Open Awareness practices for laypeople, and outline how this transpersonal approach can be applied in coaching and therapy as a constructive means of holding a transformative space for the client’s process.

Open awareness holding the space for transformation in coaching, therapy & life!

  1. 1. Open Awareness Holding Space for Transformation in Coaching, Therapy and Life! Presented by Jevon Dӓngeli
  2. 2. Characteristics of Open Awareness (OA) The value of OA in coaching and therapy Holding the liminal space for transformation The tunnel awareness issue The game changer Embodying OA <1> Holding Space for Transformation and the role of Open Awareness
  3. 3. Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Unknown <2>
  4. 4. A mindful mode of perception accompanied by a calm and receptive state (Dangeli, 2017 a). Awareness of the mind itself and somatic experience - enhancing intuition (Yates, 2015). Reframes one’s current experience of self, placing phenomena within one’s awareness, as opposed to these being experienced separate from oneself. This reduces distress and promotes a sense of interconnection (Dangeli, 2017 b). <3> Characteristics of Open Awareness Flowing moments of pure experience - interconnected with the rest of reality
  5. 5. Mindfulness is an awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally (Kabat-Zinn, 1990). Bodyfulness is when no trace of conscious intention is present, yet the individual reflexively responds to experiences in a mindful, compassionate and wise manner (Ferrer, 2008). Open Awareness, involving mindfulness and bodyfulness, enables one to release (but not lose) identification with the self-concept and become aware of the more subtle levels of consciousness that are normally beyond our level of perception (Dangeli, 2017 a). <18 > Mindfulness / Bodyfulness / Open Awareness <4>
  6. 6. • Expands one's self-construct and world view • More wholeness - disidentification from issue • Embodying broader awareness and insights • Transforming crises into safe and constructive spiritual awakenings • Integrating awakened states into everyday life - for growth, healing and dealing with challenges more resourcefully • Holding the liminal Space for transformation The value of Open Awareness in coaching and therapy <5>
  7. 7. Liminal relates to a transitional process or a position at, or on both sides of, a threshold. In coaching or therapy, the held liminal space is known to: • expedite access to holotropic states of consciousness, all levels of self, the psyche’s shadow, transpersonal phenomena and a deep sense of interconnectedness (Dangeli & Geldenhuys, 2018). • promote rapport, receptivity and mutual resonance (Siegel, 2013), a participatory perspective (Ferrer & Sherman, 2011), mindfulness (Siegel, 2010), unconditional acceptance and beneficence (Watson, 2004). <6> Holding the liminal space for transformation
  8. 8. Inhibited capacity to think creatively, feeling of isolation, impulsive behaviour, amplified and prolonged stress and anxiety (Hanson, 2011). <#> The tunnel awareness issue <7>
  9. 9. <18 > <4><8>
  10. 10. ● Scattered thoughts and brain fog (Twenge, 2017) ● Sleep problems (Spitzer, 2016 a&b) ● Poor concentration (Ibid.) ● Short attention span (Ibid.) ● Learning disabilities (Ibid.) ● Long-term memory problems (Ibid.) Tunnel Awareness - The Dark Side Excessive use of mobile digital devices can potentially hardwire tunnel awareness in children and adults, with detrimental consequences regarding health, education, performance and relationships (Spitzer, 2016a). More screen time means more psychological distress and depression (Twenge, 2017). Other issues: <9>
  11. 11. <10> The Game Changer Tunnel Awareness ● Fight ● Flight ● Freeze ● Faint Open Awareness ● Relaxed ● Receptive ● Responsive ● Resourceful (Siegel, 2010, 2018) (Yates, 2015)

  14. 14. Jumi combines judo based movements, yoga, qigong and open awareness skills. The core objective of jumi is to develop and embody open awareness. <#> Opening the aperture of awareness through jumi (judo mind) practice http://jumi.live <13>
  15. 15. 1. Focus on the sensations in your abdomen with each inhalation and exhalation. 2. Become aware of the entire volume of space that your whole body occupies, extending awareness throughout and around your whole body. 3. Notice how your breath serves as a bridge between your inner and outer experience. 4. Become aware of the spaces between breaths ….…. sensing how the space between your inner and outer experiences is the space of awareness itself. 5. To finish, focus your awareness inside the abdomen once again, feeling the physical sensations of your breath. <19 > Soma Centred Open Awareness Abridged version <14>
  16. 16. <18 > <4> Jevon Dängeli gained a MSc in Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology from Alef Trust at Middlesex University. His research found that the open awareness technique can help to enhance stress resilience and improve performance, while preventing burnout. He provides online open awareness training and an internationally acclaimed transpersonal coach certification program. To help people embody open awareness, Jevon developed the jumi (judo mind practice), which he includes in the abovementioned courses and teaches to children for free in Italy and South Africa.
