What people are saying about Julianne, the Living Inquiries and the Natural Rest Meditations:

 

“The (Natural Rest) Meditation is quite profound on many levels. It’s a fascinating journey of exploration at levels of being, and teaches such a core acceptance of all levels of consciousness. I like that you even delve into the structure of thought as opposed to most meditations which have you go back to a mantra, or the breath or some other point of focus. This work let’s you discover truths for yourself, which is infinitely more valuable than someone giving you a paradigm of how everything works; then you invariably start molding yourself based on some Guru, or teacher and you end up espousing things that you haven’t personally experienced.

I would also say that approached with an innocent attitude with no expectations even if you’ve done vipassana, yoga, Feldenkrais etc there is a real richness, a vast cornucopia of emotive and spiritual treasures that are waiting to be discovered. An experiential non-dualism becomes readily apparent and one actually and quite rapidly can find all that they have searched for in their myriad spiritual quests. I even had an “epiphany” regarding a health issue. JUST DO IT !”

~ Mark

 

“I am much more at peace with what is & I am noticing that I am not following or attaching to thought nearly as much, especially as I notice and allow the following of & attaching to thought to be in my experience.”

~ Eliza Sue Hobert

 

“It has been a joy to listen several times to a few of Julianne’s guided resting meditations. Though we’ve never met in person, I feel as if I’m listening to a clear and caring gentle friend as I lie in bed softening and allowing, while hearing Julianne’s words.

The rhythm, timbre and flow is perfect for my particular nervous system.

As one who lives with severe chronic pain and who chooses a natural route of healing, I can whole-heartedly say that these meditations are profoundly helpful in softening and opening through the grip of bodily discomfort.

The spaciousness, the calmness and the sense of allowing are beneficial for any state of mind and body. I am grateful to Julianne for sharing her gifts.”

~ Shira Lee

“I’m in a hotel room in Chicago having to work through the weekend. It’s too cold to go outside, I’ve no command, compulsion, or urge to hang out in the bar… TV, reading, inquiring, have no attraction. So I roll out my yoga mat stare at it and bring up one of Julianne’s natural rest meditations. For an hour I moved, held, listened, breathed, became in touch with, lost touch with everything. I was still, I was active, I was noisy, happy, sad, lost and found. I had fun. Pure pleasure, there was no where to go, no where to be. Just resting in the moment. I love it when people share hits of what to look at. So in this play ground of looking, for a moment, I found a new swing set. So if you’re inclined, try it, you may discover you move without kicking your feet, or being pushed…”

~ Charlie Bass

 

“It has been my pleasure to have done every Natural Rest Facilitation that Julianne has offered (except for one early on when I forgot the time). I plan to continue doing these sessions as long as they are offered, To see that this incredible gift is offered for just $10 a session is in itself a gift. I look forward to Mondays and Fridays and it makes a difference in starting my day with these sessions. I realize over and over again that everything is happening on it’s own and I don’t have to change a thing. The flow of the session is phenomenal and Julianne’s voice tone makes it very easy to hear and follow. I am ever reminded to be with the sensations of whatever is happening. When I get off the telephone I feel a sense of being o.k. with whatever is going on with me and have had a deep sense of Natural Rest two times, vividly remembering them. I am so grateful for these sessions and thank you Julianne!”

~ Alice Morris

 

“For compulsion, I ask ‘WHERE IS THE I MUST’??? For me smoking has stopped, picking sores has stopped, obsessive cleaning has changed into a happy medium…The greatest benefit is that it brings me back to me and a few times when there was some sort of ‘MUSTIBATION,’ just going to rest, locating a sensation, staying with it has been enough. I have come to realize that resting in Self is where I found Enough-ness Contentment without urges /compulsions.”

~ Susan Law

 

 “Conducted an experiment today. spent the entire day (10 AM to 8 PM) with Julianne Eanniello doing Scott Kiloby’s Unfindable Inquiry. It was amazing to look and look again and look again.Tthe inquiry centered on “the one who will die” and in the end positive and negative data became “data” along with the instinctive realization that to allow all is easier than to sort data into good and bad and I want this and I hate that. Don’t get me wrong: the sorting still appeared, but it was allowed with little to no struggle. Even when there was significant struggle, that was allowed, with resistance, and resistance to resistance. Julianne is amazing, a very special person whose friendship and skill as a facilitator are appreciated beyond words and pointing.”

~ Richard Feldstein

 

“Thanks to Julianne and Fiona for their beautiful presence at this weekends Inquiry in Cranston. These inquiries are just the best.
(with or without Scott:) Its so good to get in all those little nooks and crannies..ahhh”

~ Andree, on the AI Workshop with Julianne and Fiona

 

“It was one of the most beautiful and full events I have ever attended. The beauty of this direct looking into experience is nothing short of stunning to experience and witness. The gentle ease and simplicity by which the facilitators supported this looking was as refreshing, kind and humanly connecting as I have ever witnessed…EVER!”

~ Grant Tyler, on the Living Inquiries Intensive

 

“Loved it! Scott and facilitators offer a simple and practical approach to experiencing the end of suffering. The invitation to rest in awareness with a few simple questions cuts to the core of our human pain and stories that keep us from realizing the Truth of who we really are. Through this simple process I was able to access and release feelings, thoughts and pictures that kept my suffering alive. When I left I was laughing and having such a great time being alive in this amazing dream we call Life. This form of self inquiry is powerful. Check it out for your Self!!”

~ Hollie, on a Living the Inquires evening talk

 

“What you did for (client) no teacher has been able to do. Great work.”
~ Scott Kiloby

 

A LITTLE TINY DOT

I was once unlovable
a little tiny dot
Floating in my consciousness
using food a lot

To control my feelings
and avoid all fear
Labeling my habit
with words year after year

But now I’ve learned to simply look
and gently just explore
To see if words or feelings
define my inner war

And as each perception falls away
I can begin to see
The essence of who I really am
can’t be defined by me!

Pat Coughlin-Mawson

 

“So, I paid … to be in this course! I read the book, Living Realization. I’ve done a few sessions with certified facilitators and had an understanding of the work, (I thought). Today’s class was more than I could of ever expected. It was so easy to listen and follow. I don’t know how to explain how elegantly I thought everything was explained and described. I understand the boomerang, the panorama perfectly. I can see how the forgetting myself in the facilitation would be so beneficial for both of us in facilitation. To not have an agenda or end result is such a release. It means to me that I have to trust that the questions will come, the next thing will come just fine. The explanation of “over compensation” was so understandable. I love that everything that your teaching will be used at the right time, not to plan ahead so much, but to trust that I understand this inquiry. Thank you for a better understanding of this inquiry. and so much more. With humility and gratitude I say great job.”

Luc Richard on Facilitator Training

 

“It is SUCH a comforting & happy thought to know that I don’t ever have to overeat or overdrink again. As long as I do my CI’s, the pit of despair and the feeling of falling into it – heralding the frenzy of obtaining the ‘drug’ – can be a memory. The utter irrevocable out-of-controlness was always so awful, and after the bliss of the taste of it, I could look forward to the shame. There was never a free lunch.”

DBG on the Compulsion Intensive

 

“Well, yesterday I was going to have just one glass of wine. And then I simply forgot to get it. Woke up in the middle of the night thinking WTF? Hate it when that happens. :)”

JWB on the Compulsion Intensive

 

“I am so intrigued by how inquiring into one area affects other areas… Although I’m inquiring into drinking, mostly, I’ve noticed a big lessening of my compulsive Facebook checking. It really does feel like getting to the root of what causes one to do anything compulsively, rather than addressing symptoms. ”

LBH on  the Compulsion Intensive

 

“The inquiry is an exploration in progress, not a rigid method. It gently steers you away from your mind and thoughts right into the sensations you have never wanted to consciously feel. Doing them with a facilitator is impressively effective. It is an opening up in togetherness, lovingly looking at what is arising in the moment, without predefined answers or judgments. Just full of surprises and rich in possibilities. Your stories, views and concepts, your happiness and sadness, your funny and not so funny habits, that richness is all allowed and explored in the moment. It is amazing to see labels, images and sensations disintegrate once you’ve seen where they are glued together. Being facilitated is a precious gift, for both the facilitator and the one who is being facilitated. It feels like coming home, to yourself and to the world. I loved it.”

Annelies on the Deepening Course

 

“If you want to know what it is to be free of suffering, to be free of wanting, then I invite you to consider something different.   These inquiries, a simple form of direct looking, lead to an unmasking of spiritual words and stories and, paradoxically, to revealing that to which they point as experience beyond the narrow, mind-made world of concepts…

I’m not able to make promises.  I have no idea how your suffering works for you.  But if you’d like to find out how your suffering works—what it’s made up of, and in that finding to also find how your suffering can end, then I invite you to try inquiry.  I did.  My inquiry, like my life, is continuing.  Things that seem good happen.  Things that seem bad happen.  And less and less of it causes suffering.  I am often grateful in the midst of challenges that once caused stress.  And I find, as have others who have reported their own experiences with inquiry, that I’m simply more effective at getting what is wanted this way without being as fussed about whether I get it or not.  I don’t have a good word for the experience, but peace is as good a one as any.”

Wayne on the Deepening Course

 

“As far as being able to describe how the inquiries with the certified facilitators have changed my life I will do my best, and will come up short because words are not enough. The best I can say is that I’m happier, more peaceful and different then I was when I started. My experience is that after every session, there is freedom that wasn’t there before, an opening of some sort that allows for something else to show up. As far as facilitators go, they surely know what they’re doing and I find myself being safe with them, trusting without having to trust.  The support that is offered by Julianne, Fiona, Carin, Roy and Hattie are not that of the EGO but something else. They don’t seem to want to be right, to know what should happen or even try to steer me in a direction that they think I should go. It is an allowing for everything to express itself as it becomes unstuck.  The deepening courses allowed by the facilitators are an amazing place to be supported and to gently take in and understand the simplicity of the inquiries.  Nothing has ever been more life transforming then these sessions and deepening courses and I am grateful for my path to lead to these wonderful people and courses.”

Luc on the Deepening Course

 

” Nice to know that there can be some relief from all the things that are happening in life. I was climbing up the walls before I did the inquiry with you. Unbelievable that there can be so much meaning given to things, in words, pictures, thoughts and the feelings, in only one person/body. Put it on a wall and look at it, leave it there and then experience the feeling, it is like coming home and there is nothing.  Nothing loves nothing.”

Jeannette Koelewijn

 

“I can’t say enough good words for the Unfindable and Compulsion inquiries. It’s so amazing how in such a small period of time so many beliefs that seemed unquestionably true turned upside down once I looked with honesty and the beautiful guidance of Julianne Eanniello. I feel so lucky to be experiencing this kind of freedom… And it’s not the freedom from experience which I always thought I wanted, but it’s the freedom of being ok with present experience, letting it be just as it is – which is a so much better version of freedom!!!!  If you still haven’t tried the inquiries, by all means give it a try and you might find yourself writing a message like this with a huge smile on your face!”

Tony Galanopoulos

 

“Today I had the opportunity to experience the Compulsion Inquiry. It was so surprising as I realized that I have given so much energy to my “spiritual” seeking all this time, without ever questioning the need to seek. As I looked to everything that seemed to trigger my seeking (beliefs, memories, emotions) and found that nothing is actually saying to me that I need something different/better, the whole idea of seeking itself was seen as groundless and a lot of tension that has kept this compulsion going was transmuted into a big smile on my face : )  Such a wonderful experience. A very BIG thank you to Julianne Eanniello for guiding me through. Highly recommended!”

Tony Galanopoulos

 

“Hello all, I wanted to report on my experience with Julianne last night. She’s such a wonderful facilitator. It’s my second time working with her, and it was mind-blowing (literally) how concepts that seemed so tight and gripping loosened and fell apart during inquiry. I’ve been “searching” for nine years, and I’ve tried everything from affirmations to reiki to meditating and sitting for hours in nature. I read quotes and books from a variety of spiritual teachers, watched endless satsangs on YouTube and read one book after the other — hoping that the next book, next video or next teacher would give me that one special insight that would flip the enlightenment switch. I’ve come to find that the only thing blocking awareness is my false self and ideas. It’s been there all along. I will be doing more sessions with Julianne and suggest to those of you who are considering inquiry to give it a try. You’ve got nothing to lose but everything that’s been in the way.”

Lyndsey D’Arcangelo

 

“I appear to have lost interest in reading about or talking about or learning about.  This inquiry, facilitated by Julianne and all the other facilitators, gives me my own experience and leaves me with nothing to say and no need to sit in satsangs or follow teachers etc.  Just left with a peace that all is well as is and nothing to run around trying to change.”

Judy C.

 

“I had a session yesterday with Julianne. It was amazing how she was able to quickly focus on the most subtle patterns that arose and bring them to the light of inquiry. I really appreciated the level of intimacy, humor and love of truth she brings to the experience. It’s a wonderfully simple process yet it dives directly to the truth. Thanks Scott and Julianne.”

Michael Welch

 

“Had a great session with Julianne last night and wanted to share.  I was depressed and wanted to look for the depressed person.  The words “I just want to be happy and not suffer anymore” came up a couple of times so Julianne suggested to look for happiness or being happy.  What a trip to see clearly that “happiness” is just a mind construct based on its own ideas of what needs to happen in my life for “me” to be happy.  Knowing this intellectually doesn’t really do much for me but seeing this clearly and letting go of the emotional baggage that went along with it is so liberating!  Resting as awareness is effortless after a session and no seeking is anywhere to be found, just a content peaceful place.  Thanks so much to Julianne for doing a great job facilitating and holding the space.  If you haven’t worked with Julianne yet I highly recommend doing so.  Peace.”

Michael Cerveny

 

“I had an awesome session with Julianne this morning and saw there was no self “that didn’t count”…  it’s still amazing to just honestly answer the questions, listen to my body, and this space starts to unravel and I no longer really believe or identify with my original statements.  I don’t even have to do much but be a little willing to ask for help.  Being in the presence of two “overly controlling people” I found without the identity “I do not count” I fell into tears of compassion as I looked at them from the panoramic seat.  And having reviewed the Boomerang and shadow work last night I found I wanted to control them from not controlling me – I wasn’t suffering from their control but my story of deficiency and then wanting to control them so I wouldn’t have to feel it.  So good to have clarity in this moment!  Thanks Julianne and to you Scott for training people to assist us in our freedom.  I can’t even imagine a resource you have not provided us – such dedication and love!! ♥ ♥”

Alice Morris

 

“I did an Unfindable Object inquiry on Saturday with Julianne Eanniello … and it was fascinating.  There was awareness of words, pictures, emotions, body sensations, but no persona or agent that was being aware of them.  A verb without a subject.  The deficient self we started with turned out to be a hypothetical based on a few pieces of tantalizing evidence that led nowhere.  Cool stuff.”
