Re-wiring to Discover a New Reality

If we want something different, then we have to connect to and introduce something new. Old patterning can keep us from connecting to that which is new, even if we want it more than anything, so in our time together it is our job to see what’s possible in introducing newness.

Connecting to Enoughness

Inspired by a client's question, this guided rest mediation invites us to connect somatically to the topic of “enoughness.” I’m wonder if you have ever connected to this topic in just this way?

A Conversation about Knowing Love

Ana Maria Pardo from "Move and Bloom" and I had a passionate conversation. We love the work we do in the world, and we love to talk about it! If you are new to my work, this might be a useful way to learn more about me.

2022 Matrix Integration Exploration

I have been receiving inquiries for 2022's Matrix Integration Exploration, where, over 10 months you’ll have the opportunity to get conscious of the patterned thoughts that determine your life and cause nervous system dis-regulation, and learn how to consciously and intentionally rewire them, slowly over time, and discover what other possibilities exist as your nervous system learns how to sustainably stay in regulation. BOOM. This is transformational work, and you will have a community of practice to support you along the way.

dear girl- A Book of Poetry

I don't often recommend books, and when i do it is very intentionally. Survivors, you will be seen, touched, and loved as you read her words. Something inside yourself will open, and discover possibility.

Reclaiming mySelf

Part of the journey as a survivor is untangling the stories we had to weave to survive through those times. It’s a multi-faceted journey. It’s complex and includes somatic, physiological, psychological and neural learnings and unlearnings. Layer by layer, clarity slowly happens.

Amsterdam Location!

WOOHOOO!!!!! We have secured a wonderful location for the upcoming *We can Know Love!* retreat in Amsterdam October 22, 23, 24. It is only 15 minutes walking distance from Central train station, in the middle of this amazing city! 

With all the unknowns of these times, the facility has been so wonderfully flexible, and it is a relief to know that we always have Zoom.

Connecting with "What's simple now?" as a way to slow down and regulate

In this 20 minute rest we take our time to slowly and gently explore with what’s simple as a way to slow down. Slowing down is often counterintuitive so we need to learn ways to do so that feel safe. Slowing down is not easy, *and* is crucial for the functioning of our brain and nervous systems, and for the allowance of our vagal nervous system to know well being.

Learning how to co regulate with ourselves and the present moment

Inspired by my daughter heading off to college, I explore how we can help ourselves co-regulate with ourselves and our experience when we're feeling challenged by engaging cognitive conscious.

This video is resourced in Vagal nerve health and is designed to teach our brains and somatic systems how to safely orient to this moment.

Allowance - connecting with “and/both” Inbox

Inspired by a participant who wanted to learn how to be with discomfort more… In this 23 min rest we gently deepen into ourselves, discovering the territory “and/both.” To do so, we slow down and curiously explore the multitudes of expressions and experiences we are having. This rest is designed to bring full participation of your brain and nervous system in ways that support your well-being.

Participating in Life through Self-Love

It is my practices (read more here, here, and here) that allow me to STAY IN LIFE, when so much of me wants to fade out. It is my community of practice who help me to STAY IN LIFE when I want to retreat behind the heaviness of discomfort and go into pretending and hiding, where I spent most of my life. Disconnecting and separating myself from life mimic'd comfort and safety for so long, but there is nothing safe or comfortable about it. AND I don't need to do that anymore because of the practices and community that are here with me now. For me, this is the practice of self-love. It is self-love allows me to be in life. It is self-love that allows me to participate in life.

Upcoming Retreat: We Can Know Love

(EDITED: updated post!) 

 

My heart is swelling.

I was to come to Amsterdam the Spring of 2020 to facilitate a retreat.

Just as the details were being formed, we got the news.

One of the many disappointments of Covid-19 was the realization that I wasn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.
