Connection as medicine

To a great extent the chronic pain and symptoms that the body suffers is rooted in painful past events that haven’t been fully processed and resolved: trauma. 

It is likely that a chronic symptom has been contributed to by neglect, insults, abuse, assault, loss of love.

Relationship skills

Is there someone with whom you have such difficulty that you lose sleep and peace over it? Maybe you have mental fights with them. Maybe you get so tense around them, it hurts. Maybe your heart races with anxiety thinking about them. 

Connect kindly

Learning how to connect kindly, generously, authentically and effectively with each other is the balm and the medicine that help us move on from painful past events and circumstances into more fulfilling lives, and with more pleasure and resilience in our bodies.

While a few of us have experienced natural disasters that led to trauma - earthquakes, wild fires, tsunamis, floods and so forth, the great majority of our hurts are sourced in relationship. It is more likely that a chronic symptom has been contributed to by neglect, insults, abuse, assault, loss of love and such than by any natural factors.

There’s something you can do internally, with your body, to create peace; and there are steps you can take with the other person towards resolution.

I  can help.

You can work with me in sessions, workshops or training, see info below.

Sessions are available for individuals, couples, and groups, short-term and long-term, according to needs and goals.

Symptoms are often traced back to something that happened at home, at work, or with friends, in a relationship situation or event.

Relationships

Leaking energy in a relationship?

Is there someone with whom you have such difficulty that you lose sleep and peace over it? Maybe you have mental fights with them. Maybe you get so tense around them, it hurts. Maybe your heart races with anxiety thinking about them. 

There’s something you can do internally, with your body, to create peace; and there are steps you can take with the other person towards resolution. I can help.

Body Mind State

Living with stubborn symptoms?

Is there a stubborn pain, tension, or other symptoms that doesn’t seem to respond to any intervention? Do you have an intuition that it may be coupled with something that hurt you in a relationship a while ago? A pain that started right after a painful breakup or loss?

Your body can guide you to trace the symptom back to its original cause, after which there is inner work you can do to bring relief, and outer work - relationship skills - that can help you create and maintain greater peace and ease in your body. I can help.

Currently, all sessions are offered online, and I look forward to seeing people in person as soon as conditions allow.

Sessions are:
60 minutes at $100 USD or
90 minutes at $150 USD

If you genuinely can’t afford sessions but think you would benefit greatly from them mail me.

Embodiment Circles

The Embodiment Circles keep people sane and connected through these times. The Embodied Connection Games Circles are a playground for practicing relational skills through play and humour.

 

Among the themes:
How to ask for what you want; how to receive a compliment; how to receive criticism; how to collaborate on a project; how to part ways, and more. Before you practice doing something right, you first do it wrong, and feel the difference between approaches.

The Embodied Connection Games Circle

The Embodiment Circles Online are sponsored by Embodiment Unlimited.

Harmonious and coherent teams and communities are more resourceful, creative and productive. Kind and effective connection is key to cooperation, and is a skill that can be taught.

Participants get to practice clear, effective communication; co-regulation which adds to a pleasant working or learning environment; and creative collaboration.
