Experience - not belief - is the core.
For millennia, humans nurtured a relationship with Nature Herself - the Profound Healer - the Source. Nature responded. Ancient healing forms arose. Treasured practices were passed forward by lineages - from ancient times to the present.
Inner Resolution Work offers elements drawn from two of these treasured practices - Chöd and Plant Spirit Healing.
Chöd is an ancient practice traced through Tibetan Bön po shamanic lineages and the Tibetan Tantric Buddhist, Mother Lineage of Machig Labdrön (1055 CE - 1153 CE). Rooted in Primordial Wisdom, Chöd cuts through confusion revealing our true nature. Modern practices - like Jungian analysis and neurophysiology fragmented self work - mirror Chöd elements.
Inner Resolution Work goes deeper. Drawing on Chöd elements - visualization, self-acceptance, and inner conflict resolution - patterns maintaining the Legacy - survival's aftermath - are identified and resolved.
About The Tibetan Mother Lineage:
The Tibetan Buddhist Mother Lineage comes through Prajñāpāramitā, Machig Labdrön, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu (1938 – 2018), A.dzom Paylo Rinpoche (1971 - current), Lama Tsultrim Chödrön Allione (1947- current), and others. Lama Tsultrim Chödrön is a recognized emanation of Machig Labdrön enthroned by Karma Nyitön Kunkhyab Chökyi Dorje at Zangri Khamar, Tibet (2007).
Inner Resolution Work draws on Mother Lineage elements - spacious awareness, clarity, equanimity discerning compassion, and wise action. These elements convert confusion to strengths.
About Plant Spirit Healing & Tradition:
Since ancient times, plant spirit healing has been part of the human experience. Traditional healers and shaman keep a simple truth - plants are imbued with a spirit that communicates through light, sound, and vibration. Plants are intelligent beings forming relationships with humans, responding to help requests, and delivering healing. Plant Spirit Healing, A Guide to Working with Plant Consciousness, Pam Montgomery - (2008) traces the plant spirit healing tradition and describes its legacy.
Biochemical-biophysical research has evaluated and measured plant consciousness, environmental responsiveness, and information integration. Articles such as Consciousness Facilitates Plant Behavior, Trewavas, Anthony, Baluška, František, Mancuso, Stefano & Calvo, Paco, Trends in Plant Science. 25. 10.1016/j.tplants.2019.12.015 (2020) report the results.
Inner Resolution Work draws on the willingness of plant spirits to remove energy blocks - restore the flow needed to dissolve survival's aftermath.
Sacred psychology recognizes the potency of religious and spiritual traditions. A humanistic approach it explores sacred existence. Since before the time of Hippocrates - 2500 years ago, cultivating a sense of sacredness has been an essential part of finding a sense of purpose - developing an enriching life.
Sacred psychology cultivates awareness of "Sacred Moments". Sacred Moments are moments of synchronicity inspiring awe and a sense of meaning. Unlike psychotherapy, sacred psychology focuses on embracing our sense of something bigger. Elisha David Goldstein Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Palo Alto, CA © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

About Sacred Moments:
Since ancient times, moments of synchronicity have been a pathway unlocking potential. This pathway offers the courage needed to befriend estranged aspects - parts that hinder us - and cherish forgotten emotional needs.

Like parts of Jungian analysis and some Tibetan-Vajrayana meditation practices, Inner Resolution Work focuses on "self-talk" - our unvoiced inner explanations. Exploring self-talk allows the emergence of "Sacred Moments" - moments of synchronicity. As they emerge, identification, merger and integration unfold. Worn patterns change. Strengths are unlocked. Potential is fostered.
A corner stone of the Inner Resolution Work Sacred Moments arise spontaneously-naturally. They arise as lucid thoughts, guided visualizations, and "ah ha" moments.
Psychotropic drugs, medications, or other substances are not part of Inner Resolution Work.
