Matrix Integration Exploration has helped me feel unconditionally loved and supported by community as I have never experienced it before. The strong community experience and one-on-one sessions with Lisa offered me a space of trust has allowed me to really see my inner oppressive patterning and trauma that have kept me from being fully connected to myself, to others, to purpose and love. The tools we’ve acquired throughout the course have allowed me to engage with my rather intense experiencing of the world and strong emotions in a way that feels save, allowing me to trust more in change and the unknowing, be open for more than what I can control while taking ownership of my actions, surrender to life and allowing myself to be fully human, to be imperfect and whole at once. Actively building these social ties as well as the common learning process and sharing of experiences give hope and trust that after the darkness comes light, and that when things do feel too much for oneself, one really isn’t alone. Connecting back with the sacredness of my own humanity is allowing me to step into more loving relationships with others, as well. The course has taught me what I have been desiring deeply inside of me – how to decolonize and heal from inside out. I take with me tools that allow me to be my own mother and grounding place and at the same time that I can pass on to what is around me – to build healthy and supportive relationships, and do community work and activism in a regenerative way that puts love first. 2021 Matrix Integration Exploration participant and private client
For 10 long years I was agoraphobic because my body was in a state of almost constant anxiety. Dissociation made it impossible to drive. I couldn’t work, I couldn’t socialize, and I couldn’t find joy. I was absolutely frozen and didn’t know why or how to do anything about it. So, I began working with Lisa and doing her free rest meditations almost daily. She taught me how to slowly and gently begin to re-wire my neural pathways and soothe my nervous system. At first I didn’t understand how doing the rests would help me, until one day I realized I was able to sit in my breathing body and feel absolutely safe. It was stunning. I eventually learned how to be with my discomfort while simultaneously staying connected to things that felt supportive to me (the chair underneath me, my hands clasped together, my feet on the floor) and without spinning out and dissociating. It was such a great relief and it gave me so much hope that I might thrive in life again one day. I felt nervous to do the Matrix Integration Exploration because I feel so awkward socially. But I quickly realized how wonderful it was to be in community with others who were also committed to self-discovery and self-transformation. Everyone is so open, honest, and courageous in their sharing that it makes me feel safe enough to let down my guard. This last year has taught me so much about myself and about the dominant oppressive narrative of the culture I live in. It taught me the importance of having a beginner’s mind and the value of vulnerability in safe and nurturing space. It taught me how to discover my deepest fears and my deepest desires. I have been braver than I ever knew I could be because of MIE and the community it provides. It’s been life-changing. 2021 Matrix Integration Exploration participant and private client
“MIE has taught me to connect with myself in a way I never knew. It has changed me. I have learned to ‘check in’ with my body on a daily basis, and I see now that this is the starting point for everything else. All the complicated thoughts one might have, the painful memories, the sorrows of our daily lives: they are allowed to be there, in a safe space that Lisa helps to create. From there you can start transitioning. And learn that at the same time there are always things that support you, that are abundant and good. I’m very grateful for having participated on this journey, that will be lasting.” 2021 Matrix Integration Exploration participant.
The Matrix Integration Exploration course is the most life-changing course I’ve taken. It taught me how to lean into what is present in the moment within me, and then helped me notice my conditioned patterns of thinking. With the daily practices we were offered, and Lisa’s inquiries along the way, I became more curious about how I was responding in a given moment, about my perceptions of life. I’ve developed skills that helped me slowly and gently change my perspective from a dominant, oppressive narrative to one that is more open, more curious, and more loving toward myself which helped me look at the world differently too. Probably the biggest gift of this course is that the changes are self-sustaining as long as I continue the practices that I’ve grown to love. 2021 Matrix Integration Exploration participant and private client
Lisa’s work has been profoundly transformational for me. I came to know, train under, and genuinely love Lisa both as a client and as a Facilitator Trainee of the Living Inquiries. Following a deep Kundalini awakening a few years earlier there was great confusion as to why my expression in the world did not always align with the scared love that was now clearly realized and known. Through regular sessions with Lisa I came to see that I had spent most of this life ‘disembodied,’ only selectively present and mostly not ‘feeling.’ Unconsciously feelings had seemed too intense and too scary. Through Lisa’s gentle and skillful guidance and her keen intuition I came to viscerally recognize and resonate with unconditional (non-judgmental) loving kindness that she modeled and expressed throughout each session. A lifetime of repressed hurt, confusion, and heart-ache were consistently welcomed into the unpretentious grounded space that Lisa provided from innocent open-hearted curiosity. After several months of sessions with Lisa that same life-giving unconditional love came to somatically know itself within my own body and relax into full-embodied-being-ness. Our sessions directly attributed to my heart opening and me trusting its ability and capacity to love from and with its steadfast magnitude, extraordinary clarity, and courageous wholeness. Sessions with Lisa continue to provide a profound blessing and support in my now grounded life, rich in ever deepening love, feelings, grit, intensity, miraculous compassion, and natural curiosity-of-being. Any tentativeness that may still arise around deep looking are met within from undaunted trust, concise curiosity, restful compassion, and grounded loving kindness. Lisa’s work is generative, fresh, evolving, and born from sacred truth. I am abundantly grateful for our on-going work together. – Mimi
I met Lisa 2 years ago when I joined the training for the Living Inquiries, a beautiful tool for working with/in the uncomfortable aspects of our shadows (unconscious beliefs, behaviours, patterns and tendencies). It is a difficult tool to master, because it is not mastered by ‘me.’ It is about getting out of my own way, so that tool can work through me. How do you teach such a thing, to a group of people who are expecting to grasp something, to know it, to become adept at it?
And yet, she did teach it, and she often led by example. She opened herself to a group of complete strangers and showed her own vulnerability; her weaknesses, her darkness, her wounds…her humanness. There is great permissiveness in exposing one’s own vulnerabilities, and when Lisa did that, it allowed me to expose mine and to get the most of the course. How many teachers or instructors have I had that ever did that? How many were ever willing to question themselves, to look deeply into themselves and see if there was any part of their true self, their inner diamond, that was mirky and required polishing to be seen clearly and then integrated? The answer is none…until I started this course, where Lisa beautifully demonstrated the ability to step back and allow things to evolve in a student in their own unique way, while, at the same time, skilfully guiding them into deeper layers of the psyche; and sensing into how deep a person was ready to go without being overwhelmed.
That requires great sensitivity and in-depth knowledge of how the human nervous system works and how trauma manifests in the body-mind arena. She has a great deal of expertise in compulsion and garners enough information to navigate the often tricky complexities of the trauma underlying addictions.
She listens to you…deeply. And she learns from you. Unlike so many people in this world who are in some position of authority (whether trained in therapy, medicine, academia, politics, etc.), she looks inside the other for her own reflections and is not interested in stepping forward to lead for the sake of her ego. On the contrary, she seemed to want to step back to allow others to lead and to learn from that experience, which requires a level of humility that I don’t often see in this society.
I highly recommend anyone who wants to know themselves deeply to take one of her courses. – Phil
Lisa’s Deepening Courses, Embodied Gatherings, and her 1:1 sessions have been a lifeline for me. For most of the past decade my life has felt entirely overwhelming and restricted. I’ve had so much anxiety about all the difficult things happening to me and around me. She taught me in the gentlest ways how to feel safe again in my body, even when there is a lot of fear and discomfort happening. I’m so much more grounded and confident in my ability to navigate my life. I’m stunned how effective it’s been for me. I highly recommend her courses, gatherings, and 1:1 sessions to anyone struggling in life. – Brooke W.
I was in a place in my life where I was aware Life wasn’t ‘working’ for me – I sensed there were self-defeating patterns that I was likely repeating but I did not have a conscious grasp of what those patterns might be. I had never questioned my perception of what ‘love is’ or where I had formulated that perception. The course was a dive into an abyss… merky … pitch dark. With skill and remarkable insight, Lisa held my hand and gently guided me upwards – the light at the surface in reach. I feel equipped to continue without the fear or self condemnation that once wreaked havoc in my relationships. I met ‘me’. -Anonymous
My wish is to tell you how deeply spiritual our sessions are for me. As I wander those edges of my wounds, the bigger questions of the mysteries unveil themselves to me in a tangible form. What a blessing. -Greta
The work you’re doing for you, is moving me. I’m blessed by the work you do for you. You’re so inner connected, and because of that I receive so much. And I am grateful. – Laura
I deeply appreciate Lisa’s genuine knowledge, her generosity, dedication, and personal integrity. Every word spoken came from the heart and from personal experience, rather that being a mere theory. This made me listen with a curious mind and open heart, happy to receive every point she was making. It all made sense to me on a base level. I also enjoyed the community she created, which was coloured by a non-judgmental attitude to all questions asked or comments made. I felt safe and welcomed. Lisa’s approach, which seems so generous, genuine and heart felt. This in itself is worth the experience. -Kara
A joyful acceptance is the predominant mood mixed with a sense of awe and amazement as I flow through the adventures of everyday life and watch the habits of mind do their dance. Life has become an amusing journey and I am a willing participant. -Anonymous
I’ve found lasting benefits to our sessions, even though we only did a few, they have helped me a lot and I would like to do more in the future. I got more from those sessions than years of reading books and watching videos. -Young adult
It is hard to describe the impact on my life which has resulted from being facilitated by Lisa. Daily somatic inquiry has become a habit of a sort, and a default in being present with all of life’s experiences, both “good” and “bad”. I have discovered a willingness to return to life in all its manifestations rather than a progressive withdrawal. -Anonymous
Sometimes we humans need a moment of surrender to the love expressed in sharing with another our deepest hearts thoughts. This is not easy, for we feel there are few that have the ability to not only listen but also offer a word that fits the occasion, a word that is lovingly placed in our heart on the presumed empty spot. The response is given, not to fix, not to judge, but shared with pure love. Lisa Meuser has a gift for being aware and willing to listen to this need. She also is surrendered to her own thoughts and replaces them with an intuitive loving for the other. – Pia
Wow, I am really feeling Lisa in her power as a healer. A powerful container formed due to how she was showing up. A vibration that didn’t interfere with or detract my natural unfolding and in fact supported it deeply. I felt the container and no interference. I felt impacted by her energy, almost like a feeling of plugging in and disappearing to nothingness with her, experiencing becoming just energy. She supports and gives something significant with such subtleness that it doesn’t overpower or distract. It’s kind of like magic…you can’t tell she’s there and yet I could totally tell she was there… the impact is obvious. – Moe, Life Coach
Wowzers! Just had an amazing BARS session with Lisa. It’s similar to having acupressure points touched on the head, and can be done in a chair or on a massage table. Their tag line is “it will either change your life, or feel like a great massage”, so it’s a win win!!! I highly recommend giving it a try! Lisa is loving & caring and makes you feel so relaxed and safe!! – Jana, Practioner
Lisa is an exceptionally gifted healer and practitioner. She is loving, compassionate, wise, keenly self-aware, intuitive, open, nonjudgmental, listens deeply, and has radiantly healing hands. I’ve been giving and receiving Reiki regularly for nearly 9 years, and my session with Lisa was incredibly mystical and powerful. She is both grounded and expansive, communicative, caring, full of integrity, and authentic. She has a very natural gift that she continually cultivates with love, care, and intention, and I am so grateful she shares it! – Christine, Reiki Master
Lisa has an uncanny ability to remain open and unbiased in any healing and it must be that that allows her to see right to the heart of any problem. I always turn to her to get to the bottom of the problem and I have never been disappointed by her. Lisa’s work has allowed me to break through a “glass ceiling” I had been been stuck under for years. I am so grateful to the Universe for bringing our paths together and I look forward to being the happy recipient of many more healings from her in the future.” – Meg, Energy worker and mother of 4
Lisa is grounded in a wisdom that feels so comforting, like how it is to be with a best friend who knows our truths, and our fears. Lean into her insights. Her arms catch you mid-fall, and somehow you just KNEW they would! It feels good; just try it!” – Colette (Remote Energy Session)
Lisa’s work with me accessed parts of myself that were deeply hidden. She directed her healing towards childhood memories and experiences that were below my level of awareness. Listening to the audio she sent me about the distance healing session, drew me into the soft, loving holding space that I sense whenever I communicate with her. I felt accepted and supported and safe to allow the issues she was addressing, to surface. Her gentleness allowed me to accept the parts of her sharing that resonated with my being, and to release myself to what was unfolding through the gifts of healing that she offered me. I’m hugely grateful for the shifts within myself that I’ve seen since we worked together. I feel that Lisa has an incredible gift of love and intuition to offer people and her dedication to bringing clarity as well as her integrity towards the truth give me great confidence in recommending her to anyone. – Jeanne (Remote Energy Session client)
“I like seeing Lisa because it is a place where I can express my feelings and just relax. I like it because it also makes me feel better. When I come in sad, I feel happy when I leave. I think she’s really good at her job because I never leave sad.” – Anonymous, 9 year old
Lisa, you are an energy worker and healer, like none I’ve ever experienced. I came into some long-needed realizations. I never once felt pushed or like I wasn’t getting it. And you seem to sense when I need to get back to center and made that happen. All by phone! Leaves me wondering what face to face would be like. – Life Trainer
My sessions on compulsions and addictions with Lisa were absolutely some of the most incredible work I have ever done for myself. I went into food addiction under Lisa’s expert guidance, and after 3 sessions, realized that a major shift had taken place. I no longer viewed my obsession/addiction/unhealthy attachment with food in the way I had before. Lisa gave me a set of tools that I will not soon forget. These tools have stayed with me on a daily basis, and I’ve been every so grateful to have them. I plan to keep working with her so that I can stay attuned to the work we did together. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who deals with compulsions/obsessions/addictions to seek Lisa’s assistance. She really made a huge difference in that area of my life. – Teacher
Before the session, I was feeling overwhelmed by what was happening to me and lacking the capacity to be open for fear of being eaten alive. The process created some space in my vessel to rest, to feel free, to feel some stuff at a digestible pace during the process. I felt joy that evening being free of the grip and the potential to stay turned toward the present moment, and ready to digest whatever might come. – Anonymous
Behavior patterns and conditioning have a great grip on our operating system and have us all showing up in life in an auto pilot fashion. We create a ‘ME’ out of bundling thoughts, images and sensations and we are living a life believing we are that false construct , which has little to do with our true nature and the alive dynamic life force that we are. I came to Lisa because I was in deep suffering from my co-dependence and addiction to my unhealthy relationship with my ex girlfriend. In the Inquiry process, Lisa helped me loosen that identity and loosen the grip of my co-dependency, thread by thread, until I was left sitting in a much more free, open hearted place of rest, and a place of Truth, seeing clearly that ‘I’ am not that ‘bundle’, and in my case seeing through my addiction to my ex girlfriend and the belief that ‘I need to matter to her’ This process needs repeated as the movement to reconstruct that me, that false identity, is so automatic, as is the trigger for my addiction (seeing my ex around town or seeing images of her in my head). It is therefore really helpful to do a session each day, for several days in a row (in my case four), to keep undoing the addiction. This work with Lisa gave my system an experience of the truth that I am simply energy, before all labels and addictions. Each session felt profound and GREAT medicine for my nervous system as it got to rest out of the false identity, in a way it never does in day to day life. It was and is a great contribution to the ongoing healing of my addiction, as my body received rest from the addiction patterns. Lisa is a gifted natural intuitive practitioner of this process. Years of conditioning don’t get undone overnight hence as part of the process, Lisa coached me to do the Inquiry myself ongoing, so that I can keep deconstructing the made up addicted ‘Me’ when and if it re-grips. – Life Coach
