Work With Me

The Integrative Wellness Process

In modern industrial society, dissociation has become normalized, and precious little attention is paid to experiencing the miracle and power of our bodies.   “Coming Home” to direct somatic awareness of our flesh and bone, to intimate connection with our ancestry are essentials in both personal and cultural healing.

There are various ways to work with me, from private sessions, to in-depth immersions and mentorship, and regular group workshop offerings.  During our one-on-one sessions, we access the “bones” of our ancestral wisdom and through an experiential tour of our inner landscape. Somatic work leads to a more nuanced understanding of where our resources are located, boht physically and spiritually, as we expand our tolerance for strong emotions and sensation, and activate our innate capacity for healing.  

As we invite more intimacy with our own bodies, we may encounter places of holding or numbness, places that carry ancestral grief. We work together to create a safe container for unwinding, developing customized liberation practices that restore patterns of ease and connection.  Through relational work with our ancestors, we become more fluent with the epigenetic resources embedded within each of our lineages.

 

What you can expect:

  • Introductory Meet and Greet:  (No charge)  We will have an initial 30 minute phone conversation to determine if we are a good “fit” for eachother, and whether we will proceed to work together.
  • Ancestral Medicine/Lineage Repair:  Getting in touch with the resources contained within our lineage is an crucial part of holistic wellness.  Ancestral healing liberates us from the damaging misconception that deceased loved ones are “gone,” instead fostering ongoing relationship to ancestors.  Learn more about the Lineage Repair process, developed by Dr. Daniel Foor, at the Ancestral Medicine Website.
  • Ancestral Nutrition:  you will complete a Health Questionnaire and a Food Journal prior to your first session.  Forms will be emailed to you prior to scheduling your Initial Consultation, and I will provide a detailed analysis of these at our first session.  Along with a customized nutrition plan, we will create personalized practices involving various combinations of movement, journalling, meditation/prayer, and other methods for establishing a greater sense of meaning and connectedness

    ANCESTRAL & ANIMIST IMMERSIONS

    For those who yearn to integrate this work more deeply, and more ecologically, I offer intensive immersions at our rustic permaculture homestead on Washington State’s incredible Olympic Peninsula.  Much more than a “retreat,” you will receive holistic mentorship in earth-reverent living, as we work side by side in the various practical and ritual tasks involved in nurturing an ecosomatic life.  For those who want to relate more ancestrally with their food,  we will practice preparing local, nutrient-dense foods using traditional methods, with seasonal bounty from our organic gardens.

    Our CobHouse is a handmade, nontoxic sanctuary made of clay, sand, and straw, to literally ground and contain our grieving experiences, and invite an enveloping of ancestral wisdom.  We are also located very near to dozens of sacred beaches, forests, trails & hotsprings, places where we can make prayerful offerings to deepen our consecration and committment to the larger living web of our natural world.
