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, for example, I guide an experiential tour of our inner landscape, of our physical bones and joints, accessing the “bones” of our ancestral wisdom.  Somatic work leads to a more nuanced understanding of where our inner resources and weaknesses are located, expanding our tolerance for strong emotions and sensation, and activating our innate capacity for healing.  

As we invite more intimacy with our own bodies, we may encounter places of holding, discomfort and 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 this work, we become better acquainted with the healing resources already embedded within 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 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 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.

    ECOSOMATIC IMMERSION

    For those who yearn to immerse more deeply, more holistically, and more ecologically in this work, I offer intensive sessions at our rustic permaculture homestead on Washington State’s incredible Olympic Peninsula.  Much more than a “retreat,” you will receive integrative mentorship in earth-reverent living, as you work side by side with me in the various practical and ritual tasks involved in nurturing an ecosomatic life.  

    Our CobHouse is a handmade, nontoxic sanctuary made of clay, sand, and straw, which literally grounds and holds our grieving experiences, and supports profound resourcing in ancestral wisdom.  We are also located very near to dozens of sacred beaches, forests, trails & hotsprings, places where we can deepen further our experiences of connection and prayerful offerings.  For those who want to relate more meaningfully to their food,  we will practice preparing local, nutrient-dense foods using ancestral methods, with seasonal bounty from our organic gardens.
