Trauma As a Doorway to Spirit

Hi Everyone:

Happy September! My birth month has me feeling adventurous, so instead of writing, I made a couple of videos…

Finding Home in Your Bones I:


Finding Home in Your Bones II:

The videos lead you through 3 grounding practices I call “bones meditations.” I share these practices with my clients on a regular basis to help with grounding.

I invite you to watch and “try on” the practices. If one or more of them feel good to you, I recommend you practice them daily. Bones meditations can increase your self-trust and create a feeling of safe-haven in your body. Enjoy!

    Thank you for starting a great discussion on trauma as a doorway to spiritual growth.
    I look forward to continue to share the wisdom gleaned from your epic healing journey as well as my own and our personal, spiritual-somatic practice. I must read Peter Levine’s new book.
    thank you, peace-out.
