Fundamentals of Essence

Dimensions of Being presents


Initiation into Essence

An Online Teaching Retreat
Rafia and Turiya

October 2021 - March 2022 

After 40 years of working together we are launching an online platform which will share, in a very deep, delightful and new way, much of the essence of what we have learned, created and transmitted in our own very particular flavour and style of working with people. We have named that work Dimensions of Being. All of our groups and trainings are always aimed at providing a map of understanding which assists people to consciously navigate between the limited identity of our very conditioned Ego structures and the expansive freedom of Being. This journey goes deep, compassionately understands how our experiences have shaped us and passionately encourages and empowers us to live our potential to the fullest. Dimensions of Being recognises that the need and process to heal and grow is very challenging, often emotional and difficult but at the same time is filled with the blessings of love, community, truth, individuality, relaxation and joy.

We absolutely love to share this work and feel very grateful to be present with people that are discovering, remembering and recognising their own glorious beauty and power of Being in an embodied way.  Our first online live teaching offering is:


Initiation into Essence

One of the most important pieces of work that we integrate into all our courses is a system we have studied and taught for many years called 'Essence Work'.  In this course, Initiation into Essence you will be initiated into dimensions of being we feel are very relevant for people looking for inner growth. The work of Initiation into Essence will support people to embody and live more deeply from Being, be less bound to their conditioned personality and awake to their potential.  

     This course is ideal for people who:

           are interested in discovering and living their deepest potential;

           yearn for more meaning in their lives;

           wish to connect with their body’s innate wisdom;

           work as therapists, psychologists or counsellors and wish to discover new approaches, understandings and tools;

           are curious to learn tools which accelerate inner opening, expression in life and deepening of their meditation                     practice.

This course offers twelve in depth live online modules taught by us over the course of 6 months; live follow up Q&A sessions; plus scheduled pod group meetings with other participants to dive deeper into the subjects we are exploring.  We will offer an in-depth, highly effective technique for self-exploration and realisation; as well as optional private sessions with facilitators trained by us to help navigate the issues, emotions, and personal history which may arise as we go deeper into shifting our consciousness and lives from Ego to Being.

In our experience, only when we bring psychological and spiritual work together is true transformation possible. This synthesis truly enhances deep and lasting growth.


With this approach we discover that every emotional and psychological issue is actually a potential doorway to grounded and embodied awakening.
