to Joy - Pauline Tsukamoto
Tokyo and Chiba, Japan
Presents a half day Tokyo retreat
Conversations with the Inner Self
For women seeking quality time with themselves
me in an afternoon away from busyness. Take this opportunity to put aside the
roles, the seemingly endless `doing` in mind and body, and slow down into stillness.
Let yourself quietly open the door to the other you – your inner self.
Here rests a gentle, wise, compassionate presence. It is both the love that is
you, and the love that flows for you.
The busier we are, the more frenetic our schedules, the further we go from this
place of peace. We are so driven by what we create that it becomes difficult
to let in another reality. Living is holding on to tension as if it were a lifeline.
Yet the act of bringing this deeper awareness into our consciousness gives us
the gift of another way to live and a more profound way to know ourselves.
The focus in this experiential workshop is to open the heart to this nurturer
within. To give it a voice that speaks the language of love you choose. To have
it there to comfort, support and direct you in your daily life. The words, thoughts
and feelings that are kind to you; that also inspire, calm and heal you. You
will be planting the seeds for a higher quality of relationship with yourself,
others and the world. You will be expressing your higher self. Learn to embrace
this loving energy; it is as limitless as the universe from which it comes. Learn
what it can do for you. Learn to let it in. Learn to let go.

Pathways to Joy is about vision and transformation. When awareness
is seen through a vision in light it creates meaning from a joy in
being, and transforms personal truth into a reality that lets us `follow
Living in the light comes from being empowered by this inner glow.
With this loving energy actively moving through our daily lives we
our presence and the world around us more easily, more naturally.
The first step to walking in our own sunlight is to be aware.
To see that we are a presence of both form and feeling and to know
within the folds of this truth rests a self that embodies the miracle
and mystery of existence. In nurturing this gift of life through
moments of stillness, contemplation, when we express our essence or
even when we receive the breath present to the moment ,we build a relationship
with the source of our being, the source of our wisdom.
The energy in this place of peace expresses a quality, a mood
of experiencing that when connected to its flow becomes a language
of living that respects
our total experience. Life around us with all its challenges
is received by a wiser mind.In this way, the path of
the spirit joins the world of our senses and everyday events see a
body less governed by excessive reaction, emotional, chemical or mechanical.
Participation in the world becomes viewed with eyes of curiosity, wonder
and possibility. Head is with body, mind is with heart, and
feet touch the earth. We are separate selves yet belong to the universe.
by our essence expressed in the integrity of our person, in
living in the light we are the best we can be .In
joy we look to and manifest our chosen path.
PATHWAYS TO JOY offers life-enrichment coaching.
Our caretakers, their life circumstances, the beliefs and needs that
determined their experience produced the level of shelter, nurture
and direction we received. In adulthood the gift of responsibility
allows us to meet our needs, to match out beliefs with the life of
our desires. When we express our potential, we give to ourselves
the possibility of living our dreams...living our dreams...Know
what you want. Make a decision to walk the path of your choice. Make
it a reality. Give yourself a time frame, set goals, monitor
your progress, enjoy your achievements and have a life enrichment
coach to encourage, to work along side, to support and congratulate
you on your successes. And have fun going for gold!
Encounter with Japan workshops;Japan Coaching
My Japanese encounter brought me face to face with the need to see
in a different way. It took time to change my focus from what
I saw to how I saw yet it made all the difference to how I felt about
myself and this country. Japan importantly taught me that I
could have opinions, thoughts and beliefs that were based on my own
truth and that they would be valid. More and more the
cultural and social beliefs I carried with me could not stand
up to the strength of my own experience. The lessons to be learned
in a cross-cultural encounter encourage personal growth and create
open, flexible and accepting approach to life in general.
Subject of Vision
The more we let sight into ourselves with love attached, the more
we illuminate our experience of being alive. The more we give our
journey, the growth, the achievements, the struggles and suffering
the honoured places they deserve in our consciousness.
We carry with us the wisdom of the universe, from our cells outwards,
that allows us a vision without end. It is a sadness to not let this
sight take us to realities wrapped in our dreams of fulfillment,
joy and wellness. The source of our vision whether psychological,
spiritual or physical is within us. How well, how fully we see comes
from and is determined by how deeply we connect to and recognise
ourselves. For true vision is awareness unfettered.
Sometimes there are shadows that start as dots ,that can grow like
mental tumours swallowing up so much of the light in our sight and
life, and in so doing take us away from the potential joy, fulfillment
and enlightenment available in our life experience. When these obstruct
to that extent, whether they come from ancient or more recent memories
or in the present day, they deny to us clear, free, honest and open
vision that came with us at birth.
Fear is a major block to seeing the truth, our own, and the greater
universal truth supporting us. Beliefs connected to fear create distress
: at a lesser level - a sense that something isn`t quite right but
the reason can`t be pinpointed causing unsettling and unhappy feelings;
at its worst it leaves a canopy of confusion and conflict over everything
it sees with its web of disarray, distortions and disharmony.totally
upsetting one`s wellbeing,
There may be so much fear that the glasses one uses to see life have
to be readjusted, even replaced over and over, but the result will
always lead to healthier, improved sight and life experience. The
light of better vision extends both inwardly and outwards; it radiates
mind, spirit and body with the glow from twinkling eyes, eyes vivid,
reflecting life`s wondrous possibilities, the glass half filled,
the magic of pure vision.
It does take courage but when the clouds of fear can be seen clearly
for what they mean, and the suffering honoured in the going on despite
- a belief in a clearer sky somewhere beyond them; then their impact
can never be quite the same. For our vision has embraced, in some
way, unbeknown to us, perhaps, a sight, a truth beyond the limits
by the fear. We will have grown stronger, more able to connect to
what we honestly see, what is real for us, what we want to see, from
that love rather than fear. And we will have freed ourselves from
what was unwanted, unneeded, disliked, feared, doubted, hated in
place. We will have begun to remove the shackles around our own vision,
clearing it, expanding it, loving it.
How do we withdraw from seeing openly, honestly the facts of our
lives.? We conveniently close our eyes, and so our minds and our
put shutters over them that are raised only on condition. In that
way we protect ourselves from what we see in order to not see, and
doing deprive ourselves and greatly limit our potential to enrich
our lives. So, try to let go of whatever may come to spoil what you
and experience; whatever limits, darkens, disturbs and hurts. Open
up the curtains over your eyes, let the light flow in and out and
onto a fuller, richer, more rhonest and honourable view of yourself
then your desires and the means to achieve them can be fully born.
Polish those glasses whether it`s just a few specks of dust on them,
or deep smudges; endeavour to make them shine and sparkle. Give yourself
what you deserve; the beauty of unimpeded vision. The more you do
this, the more you remove what you don`t want, and in particular
that get in the way, you then clear your way forward; the direction
you want to go will become more obvious. You can then take the steps
you need to get there. The more you live with your own vision, your
own truth, the more you will live the life you want.
I have needed to change my glasses countless times. I`ve had to nearly
replace shattered ones, and extensively repair their replacements.
I`ve had glasses I have dreaded wearing, glasses that terrified me
by the view from them, glasses I pretended to wear and others I pretended
not to; even glasses I longed for but couldn`t relax wearing them
or those that fitted so well but were taken away.IWearing other people`s
glasses , as well,became such a habit that I thought they were my
In a way I had lost sight of where mine were. When I would find myself
I would struggle with trusting what I saw, with believing in its
truth, so fuzzy was the space between the world of others and myself.My
search for ones that felt right has led me back to the vision I had
in the beginning, unadorned, unchained,untampered with, and together
with the richness in the sight I have acquired in years of learning,
of growing, of becoming more aware my eyes can now really shine with
what they see in and beyond me.
Some people`s glasses may only required a minor adjustment now and
again - a slight change in attitude to the mind that sees; others
may require a near complete overhaul. As we go through life, the
changes occurring in life require us to keep in contact with what
we see, t.o maintain our health, to maintain our lives wisely. It
ongoing process for what we see and how we see it comes from our
mind, our feelings in tow, and our body through which vision flows
which on planet Earth nothing could be seen or experienced or achieved
in the first place.
