“What do you do in a 7 day?” is something often asked by participants fresh from the mind body blowing experience of Levels 2 & 3, the 3-Day Body Class, or an Energetic Synthesis of Being. It seems it can be hard for them to imagine something even greater can be possible.
One of the big differences between the more structured Levels 2 & 3 and the advanced 7-day events is the depth into which Gary is able to go on the topics covered. While the 2 & 3 is a broad sweep of processes and information to change limitations in every area of your life, the extended time of the 7-day makes it possible for him to spend an entire day or even more on a particular topic which limits us. The clarity that can be achieved through Gary’s in-depth focus is truly amazing.
Two 7-Day events are currently in the cards and on the calendar. Celebration of Life and Living is in a new venue near the tourist center of Fortuna in Costa Rica, October 21-29, and next April, back at the Chateau Tongariro in New Zealand.
One short article cannot possibly convey all the changes that occurred in this most recent 7 Day, but it can give you a sample of the breadth of what is included.
It’s all about family. Gary Douglas can tell the entire family dynamics of the individual sitting in front of him to a phenomenal degree. He ranks up there with Virginia Satir and Milton Erikson, truly one of the greats at untangling the ties that bind.
This is an advanced class. As one participant said, “We’ve all done 2 & 3, we’ve gone through all this relationship stuff. You mean there’s more?”
At this deep level, oh yes! How did we get so lucky?
The idea of being crazy or stupid is starting to lose its charge. The title of the class was From Crazy Stupid to Crazy Possible…which may have contributed to the class’s being smaller than the venue could accommodate. Gary noticed people’s faces twitching when the clearing statement was read about crazy or stupid, even when the people themselves did not know they were reacting. By morning of the second day, that’s begun to change. What else is possible?
By the afternoon of day 3, Gary had moved the class to a place he’s been trying to get people to for 25 years. What else is possible?
Fabulous morning with hours of question, discussion, and clearing about what boldness and aggression is required to create your life.
In the afternoon the conversation veered into money, as well as looking at how the fixed points of view of others can override our projects, and how to deal with that in family and business situations.
Quote for the day: “Your points of view do not create your reality, your questions do.”
Today we got an amazing demonstration of how someone with a fixed point of view can actually stop the progress of someone else, even when that other person is more interested in consciousness and more powerful to boot. Even more valuable, we got some tools about how to get around this kind of situation. One such situation about which a question was asked actually turned 180 degrees while the 7-day itself was occurred. How does it get more magical than that?
Finally we got to peek beyond what’s crazy stupid into what’s crazy possible. This took the form of some of the most in-depth and eye-opening information on handling business conflicts, including how changing a business email by one word can create dramatic results.
Creating what’s so possible for you that it seems crazy to this reality includes aggressively pursuing what you want in your life. “You’ve got to look at what’s going to create the result. When you’re aggressively needless, you don’t need anyone or anything to get what you want. You’ve got to be willing without force to force people into choosing.”
Some of the amazing creators that were present revealed how to create a marketing team you don’t have to pay.
Gary was willing to double the cost of a huge project and the time it required….being aggressively needless makes you not become a slave to the money.
Gary revealed that he starts each day with, “What do I need to accomplish? What can I do or be today that would create what I would like even if I don’t know what it is?”
Day 7—Amazing changes occurred throughout the world as we wrestled with what’s kept us from being as conscious as we could be. One woman who came to terms with her husband developing Alzheimer’s noticed a huge change in his being present with her when she spoke with him by phone. Another seemingly unchangeable business situation half a world away shifted by the person asking questions about it changing—without even speaking to anyone involved. What other magic is possible?
The hotel threw a party for us that was truly a beyond, complete with ice sculptures, raw oysters, a dozen cooked dishes as well as a spread of all kinds of salmon, sushi, prawns, and desserts. There was so much food that you couldn’t even take a bite of each without being way too full—and that was without the dessert. Wow!
As always with the 7-Day events, the most amazing part of all is what happens afterwards in the lives of those lucky enough to have attended. Changes large and small that we never imagined were possible seem to happen with ease and magic.
