EMBODIED THERAPY

Embodied Therapy is a holistic pathway toward transformation that seeks to heal the wounded aspects of self, explore the transmitted traumas in your body, make space to reassociate and align to new ways of relating, and integrate the body as an essential place of transformation. We come from the perspective that what ails humanity is the disembodiment from our own living bodies and the greater body of Earth.

CREATE CHANGE FROM WITHIN

We welcome the opportunity to work with you and together create new pathways of transformation that ground and liberate your bodymind, heart and spirit in its movement towards freedom & belonging.

PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION

Experience a new dimension of embodiment

Personal Transformation is a facilitated exploration journey in which you learn to relate to your body in new and liberating ways. We begin by honoring where you are and where you have come from and together form a context from which to understand your own personal mythology. We draw upon the incredible wisdom you have gained from your life to identify key strengths and resilient strategies. We identify your hopes and desires, your goals and intentions, your values and longings and assess the current “shape” of your life. 

From here we work to understand your current relationship to self and the behaviors that perpetuate unconscious ways of being that keep you from fully showing up as your most authentic self. We seek to increase awareness of your default “shape” which consists of personal narratives, memories, automatic responses, thought patterns, triggers, implicit biases, emotions, behaviors, habits, etc, and begin to heal and transform these inner frameworks.

Through reflection, mindfulness and somatic practices you will begin to explore the areas within your soma that are asleep, shut down, numb, disconnected or repressed. (Your “soma” is the living wholeness of your organism - mind/body/spirit/relational integration). By implementing new practices, rhythms and embodiments, we begin to reorient your awareness toward the interior space of your body, redefine  your experience of “self”, and create new openings and possibilities for transformation.  All of this contributes to re-shaping your old form into one that supports your essential nature, authentic power and soul purpose.

As you deepen presence and become more subtly attuned, you will learn how to become your own guide. You will reconnect to the wellspring of power that is within you, align to your destined self, and serve the transformational journey of earth. You will become spiritually embodied, and know your place of belonging within your body and within the body of earth.

RELATIONAL EMBODIMENT

Nourish your relationship from the inside out

Relational Embodiment is a devotional journey calling to couple’s who long to take their relationship to the next level of consciousness, trust and intimacy. It is for couples who want to live in a healthy, communicative, and harmonizing partnership, and who are ready to learn the relational skills necessary to create a loving, respectful, and tender co-existence. It is for couple’s who feel inspired to be the best version of themselves possible, who want to create that reality in the context of their partnership, but who often feel stuck in how to get there. That’s where we come in. We lovingly assist you and your partner through an empowering process of shared discovery and deeply explore the areas of relationship that are holding you back from experiencing mutual expansion

 

For many of us, the old model of relationship we were given falls short of not only what’s possible, but of what is necessary for the evolution of humankind. Relationship as a catalyst for transformation is the new story of relationship and one that many people are now being initiated into. Relational Embodiment is a pathway towards that initiation. Relationships are the primary context of our lives, and thus, our most intimate relations hold a prime key to the doorway of our own inner awakening and transformation. In fact, the very challenges that confront us in our relationships are hidden opportunities for growth in disguise.

 

Relational Embodiment is an invitation to enter into a sacred context of relating where both individuals express a willingness to do the inner work necessary. This process will foster and depend upon character qualities of integrity, vulnerability, courage, transparency, responsibility and commitment. Your commitment to taking action and a willingness to get uncomfortable is necessary. 

 

We will explore what is working, what isn’t, and take action steps toward cultivating a dynamic that meets your needs, promotes awareness, deepens intimacy, strengthens trust, supports your individual growth journeys, encourages new forms of communication that foster harmony and loving compassion. 

 

OUR SESSIONS TOGETHER WILL INCLUDE: 

  • 1.5 hr zoom sessions in the form of a facilitated dialogue committed to the harmonization of your relationship

  • Exploring relational themes, narratives, power dynamics, roles, strategies, and patterns that play out within the context of your partnership

  • A strengths-based approach to peeling back unconscious layers that work to prevent you from showing up wholeheartedly in your relationship

  • Identifying personal triggers (the source of emotional charges within the body) and gently working with the nervous system to create new response patterns through co-regulatory practices

  • Getting to the core of your deepest held desires and what matters most to you

  • Helping you to remember not only what is possible, but what is inevitable as you actively engage and tend to the love that lives within your shared heart

  • Somatic, visual, contemplative, and mindfulness practices to support co-regulation and emotional capacity

  • Educational resources specific to our sessions  that will support your relational transformation 

  • Custom post-session reflection prompts designed for deeper contemplation and integration practices that guide you toward new insights and embodied rhythms

No one is turned away for financial reasons.

ECO-THERAPY

Eco-Therapy is a holistic healing modality that maintains that tending our connection with the more-than-human world is necessary for thriving. Informed by Systems Theory, this modality honors the fact that we are intimately embedded within and inseparable from Earth. Eco-Therapy recognizes that our identity formation is influenced at a deep somatic level by our early experiences in nature, by our parents' ways of relating with nature, and by our culture’s narrative of the natural world.  

 

Through a process we call Earth Bonding, we begin to recalibrate our inner system by attuning to Earth, cultivating co-regulation practices with Earth, and forming a secure attachment to ourselves through Earth. Through education, practices, and being with Earth,  we stimulate the healing of the mind-body-spirit relationship.
