It's a hero's journey

Ferociously, the ox bellows and, free of all constraints,
Thrusts about with its crooked horns,
Racing wildly round the mountain

To where the river turns away, and the road stretches off into the far distance.
A bank of black cloud hangs over the opening to the valley,

And who can tell how much destruction is wrought to the young seedlings

Trampled underfoot in the farmer’s field! (poem)

There are many variations of the heroes journey in different traditions. One of them, the Zen Buddhist teaching of “Taming the Ox,” describes in paintings and poetry the steps of Enlightenment as it unfolds in a human life. First we go out to search for the ox until we discover it, catch it, ride it home and bring all of our experiences back to the marketplace.

In this antient Chinese teachings, the ox is a metaphor for our wild heart-mind, which has not been reined in, or subjected to any form of discipline.

We would like to take this metaphor and the image of the ox herding as a basis for the Relational Spaces Journey, and hope you take it as an invitation to use all our classes and workshops as your regular practice over this half year.

Growth that matters

It is not just the old traditions that speak about a path of growth and development. Even modern research shows that the inner abilities we now all need to deal with our increasingly complex environment and challenges can be developed. Based on the story of the ox the “herding”, or development of our minds and hearts is key.

The Inner Development Goals (IDGs) is a framework of the capabilities, qualities and skills we need in order to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are here to educate, inspire and empower us to be a positive force for change in society and find a more purposeful way to look at our lives and the lives of the people around us.

Many of the practices we offer in Relational Spaces are supporting the inner growth and development and the skills and capabilities pointed out in the IDGs. In this journey we would like to see if we together can notice and track a personal development over the time of 6 months. The IDGs will be a guide for us on this journey.

Let's do it together

Life can sometimes be overwhelming and many of the daily tasks and things that are asked from us to do or achieve seem enormous at the beginning. That might also be true when we sign up for a personal development course, and are committed to do the practice. While on the journey we then find out the task is actually not that big and might even become smaller with the growth of our skills. At some point we might find our self in a flow state, juggling with many different things at once.

Support of others can often help, either when we have someone who has gone some parts of the path already, or teaming up with peers who go the same way. The recently deceased Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh once said something like, “The next Buddha will be a Sangha.” A Sangha, or group of practitioners can be a powerful source of energy for your transformation and healing. That is one reason why we want to encourage you to join this group of committed Relational Spaces members who are on the same path with you. You will also be able to find a smaller group of peers within the journey wo/-men who will be your buddies.

The smaller peer groups can gather between the monthly meetings as much as you like. This will be self-organized by you. Maybe sometimes you want to join together one of the workshops at RS, or you just meet to share your experiences, this is totally up to you.
