What is an Inner Ocean?
The ancient Asian cultures recognized that even though we draw vital energy from many sources in our lives, we store it in a central channel held deeply within our bodies. This pool, often referred to as a Sea or Ocean in the classic medical texts, is a reservoir of energy for the body, mind and spirit to draw from throughout our entire lives.
When our Inner Oceans are abundant and full of life, we also feel this way and find it easy to be open-hearted, to share our resources, to feel connected to others and this planet, and to find resilience in difficult times.
The opposite is true when we have taxed this life-giving resource: we may feel exhausted, careful to extend ourselves, and downright hopeless. When our inner oceans are depleted, we may not even have the energy for the simplest of things because it puts our nervous system into a state of “survival-mode”. This is where violence, addiction, and the cycle of trauma begins: in the powerlessness that a lack of resources fuels.
Our goal at Inner Ocean Empowerment Project is to assist in the repair and restoration of Inner Oceans all around the world.
