Wouldn't you like to engage this one in conversation? I can show you how...or just go out and do it...begin with introducing yourself, out loud..."I am the one who..."
Integrative Therapy and the elements involved.
Work that re-connects you to yourself and to the world around you
Elements that will benefit you in each and every session
The wisdom of the body. This is key whether online or in person. Knowing what you are storing in your body and where you are storing it is important. Building up your tolerance to fully feel what you are holding and letit move through you, something it was never allowed to do while turning toward it is also keyto long lasting healing. We must feel it to heal it. Your body will never lie and it knows exactly where to look for what needs healing. It considersitself your protector but it also wants to show you what it knows and what it holds.
The wisdom found in parts therapy. The ability to know what your wholeness looks, feels and sounds like, to know what your fragmented self looks, feels and sounds like, and to know the difference, this is one of the most important skills you can learn for your ongoing healing and transformation. The parts I work with are based on my training with Bill Plotkin and Animas Valley Institute. Your fragments may show up as your wounded child, escapist/addict, inner critic, rescuer, enabler, tyrant, codependent one, shadow selves etc, and the facets of your wholeness, your Healthy parent, Wild Indigenous One, Muse-Beloved and Innocent Sage. We must also learn the skill of re-parenting ourselves. WE must also be in our wholeness to meet the needs of our wounded child in healthy ways. -Fragments do not heal fragments, you need to be in your wholeness to do that and I can show you how.
Nature, the world around us and the more than human others. The transformational power found in deeply connecting with nature, in a reciprocal relationship with the world around us. The world offers itself to us and we offer ourselves back. I will offer suggestions as to how you might deepen your own work by connecting to the more than human world, or we can do a session where I take you outside and show you how you might begin. These are practices I use myself for my ongoing unfolding as a human being and to connect with and build relationship with the more than human earth community. Opening to the sacredness of the world around us and our connection to it is key to our healing.
Mystery, Spirit and Soul What do I mean by that? Spirit is our connection to everyone and everything around us...we are a part of something bigger than ourselves, we are part of a universe that participates in our unfolding. That is spirit. Connection to spirit is part of our whole self. Soul is different. We ascend to find spirit, we descend to find soul. Where spirit is about our sameness (we are all one, all the same), soul is about our uniqueness. We all arrived with a gift and it is our job to do the work of discovering our unique gift and offering it...that is soul. It's our unique place in the world that no one else can fill, the gift no one else can give. This is something you were born with, your essence, not something you do. The awareness that you are supported by something bigger than you and that you are here for a reason with a particular medicine to bring to the planet....these are key to our unfolding as whole, human beings. Mystery is a great word to say we don't know what intelligence is in the world that is offering itself to us but we know it is there.
These are the elements necessary for any session....body awareness, wholeness/fragments, emotional intelligence, our deep connection with the world around us, our relationship to spirit, something bigger than ourselves through which we are all one, and soul, that part of us that is so unique, our unique conversation we can have with the world.
We are disconnected; from ourselves, from our pain, from our emotions, from our stories, from each other and from our planet. The integrative somatic Therapy that I practice, therapy that lets the body set the healing agenda, seeks to change that. By connecting to ourselves and our story as revealed by our body, by discovering and living in our wholeness, by connecting to the world around us and discovering our place in it, and by knowing the gifts we carry, we can heal ourselves and our planet at the deepest level.
This is our journey to becoming healthy, healed, embodied and whole human beings.
This is what I offer, a conversation with your very depths.
