    #86. Teacher, Parent, Student -asking questions

    #86. Teacher, Parent, Student -asking questions

    Today I’m answering questions asked by a teacher, a parent
    and a student.

    The teacher asked:  what could  I do with a parent who constantly tries to teach me what to teach in the lesson?

    The parent asked :how can I  make sure that my child practices everything the teacher assigned us to do?

    The student writes :I really love my cello and I love
    playing it. But I don’t like 1. To practice difficult sections   2.When mum’s hovering around me with a demanding
    energy.

    Thank you for sending your questions. Please keep them coming.

    #85.This Is What's Happening - with Lane Arye Ph.D

    Today I’m in conversation with Lane Arye.

    Lane Arye, Ph.D. is a senior Processwork trainer and a founding faculty member of the Process Work Institute in the USA.

    Whether teaching, working in private practice, facilitating community and organizational conflicts, or learning and training alongside social justice groups, Lane partners with people to help create more inner and outer freedom and wholeness.

    He helps people transform their music, creativity, and stage fright, and is the author of Unintentional Music: Releasing Your Deepest Creativity.

    Lane co-led a six-year UN funded project in the Balkans that brought together Serbs, Croats, and Muslims after the war to work on ethnic tension, post-war trauma, and building sustainable community.

    He has facilitated conflicts between Aboriginal Australians and European Australians, and between Dalits (so-called untouchables) and high-caste Hindus in India.

    Lane is a facilitator and trainer for the Racial Justice Collaborative and is the author of “The Vicious Cycle of
    White Centrality” in Dr. Kenneth V. Hardy’s The Enduring, Invisible, and Ubiquitous Centrality of Whiteness.

    He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area (USA)
    and loves to hang out with his wife and kids, play music, meditate, and follow the mystery.

    Pronouns: he/him/hisLane's website


    WE TALKED ABOUT:

    · Processwork

    · Dreams

    · Worldwork
    (“what happens in the world- happens at the kitchen table”)

    · Lane’s work with racism

    · Unintentional Music, Lane’s book and how he brings Processwork to music.

    · How our inner process changes the way we play

    · The parts of us we don’t like and the ones we’d love to have

    · The box that keeps us in our identities

    · The pain, fear and exhaustion in war zones, and what can be done from a Processwork point of view.

    · The essence of Processwork - This is what’s happening

    #82. Alive Until Expired

    #82. Alive Until Expired

    Yesterday  I was talking to a  dear friend.

     She celebrated her 80th a while ago.

    A wise, talented, intelligent woman. A woman that you’d feel privileged to include in your circle of friends.

     She apologised for wearing a sleeveless top.

    It’s too hot, she said.

    I asked why is she apologising, and she said ,she can’t show
    her arms “like that”.

     She meant  flabby arms.

     It made me sad. Women of this calibre need to hide something
    that has to do with their appearance because it’s not up to the public standard?

    What is this standard?  I wanted to shout.

    Something that looks like a young arm?

    Is there an age limit or body appearance limit, that women are allowed to show in public, and hide the rest?

     And who decides what this limit is ?

     A panel of young people?

    Or maybe Children?

    Or elders who feel they need to apologise for looking their age ?

     Society in its best is  made of all ages.

    From babies to old people.

    Each one in its development stage is contributing to the whole.

    Everyone is needed. Every one of us is a colour or a shade in a rainbow of human existence.

    You were young once,  and then you grew into an adult and after that you grew old.

     Do you need to apologise for this?

    Do you need to cover it up?

    Do you need to be approved for  the way you look?

     This phenomenon of anti-ageing, what is it about?

    Why are we trying to get rid of ageing?

    Why are we fighting it?

    We want to age without ageing.

    We want to age pretending we are still young.

     Why not embracing the process of ageing?

    Society will change their attitude towards old age, when elders will change their  attitude towards themselves.

    #81. Grief and Love

    #81. Grief and Love

    In the first stages of my grief I made a decision to experience it all; every emotion and feeling that came in the package of grief and loss.

    I didn’t want to run away from it.
    Something in me knew that if I ran away, this monster will catch me at some point in the future.  I knew it was unavoidable.

    I sort of knew, that I’d rather experience it in real time, while it’s there, fresh… raw… cruel… fierce…uncompromising….

     So, I made a place and space for grief, for pain. for cry, for anger and disbelief.

    Now, from a vintage point of 2 yrs. + 7 months I can see that among the parts that make who I am, there was a wise old woman who knew how to guide all the other parts. 

    And while I was “away” crying the pain of a lost child, moaning the agony  of the maiden, wailing the woman who lost her lover, and lamented the woman who wanted to get old side by side with her  beloved, she – the wise old one – was holding me in her arms, waiting with love and permission to feel it all. As long as it takes...

    She knew... She who knows.   

    We are brought up to believe that life is made of right or wrong, good or bad, ugly or beautiful, black or white.

    And if so – there’s grief or love, sorrow or joy.

    So, in order to live “normal” life you have to “move on from grief”.

    These are WRONG messages.  They have nothing to do with the real raw experience of grief.

    I discovered that love and grief are not either or.

    They are inseparable.

    A few days ago, on our 50th anniversary day,I renewed my vow.

    My vow to love with all my heart. To live my life from the heart. With the heart. And for the heart.

Gently brought home to oneself…

ep #56 Travel and Time - THE SOULOIST PODCAST
I so enjoyed the conversational way this episode flowed from Zohara’s natural story telling voice. What a treat to listen to a podcast and feel gently brought home to oneself, encouraged to make a choice of soulful listening not only as I listened to this pod, but daily. The opposite of the current thrust of the media world of ticking and reels. Thank you so much Zohara for sharing your quiet gift of love in a very noisey world.

Mandie Vieira ,

Inspiring

Thank you Zohara for your wonderful podcast. I have never enjoyed doing the house work so much, due to the company of your voice and wisdom. Your kindness, authenticity and passion for the Suzuki Method is to be commended.
Thank you for making me feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude to have been a Suzuki student, now a Suzuki teacher and Suzuki Mother.

MusicMum2038 ,

Deep kindness and heart-felt truths

Thank you Zohara for this deeply heart-felt podcast. You speak with such honesty, love, authenticity and kindness, it is wonderful touch-stone and way to connect not only with a treasured friend and wise woman, but my own truths as a woman, mother and teacher.
