I am in Nelson, BC, attending a two-week intensive birth process workshop. For myself: for healing and transforming any early imprints of my 'odd' conception and pre-birth experience, AND, learning how any pieces of this 'work' can help my clients. How any piece of my healing and self-regulation can help my clients individually or in groups I facilitate!
Being very sensitive to 'place' and the energy of 'place' has thrown me off a bit as I took a two-day meander to Nelson from Olympia, Wa, and because I have never been to this part of Canada.
Yesterday we began. With eye exercises to help regulate the poly-vagal system, with calm, reassuring overviews on creating a safe 'surround', helping us get clear about what we need for ourselves and - a little harder - what we can ask for. Hmmm. Ask for. I am working on that one.
To orient myself I have been taking pictures. Maybe as you look at these pictures you can imagine breathing a little more deeply, settling into the chair/couch/bed a little more deeply, softening your face, your shoulders...your entire body down to your toes. Feel the cool Kootenai air in the evening, the warmth of the sun during the day. The progression of the sun from one side of the valley, over the mountains, to the other side.
I will follow up. I wish you calm today. Soft breathing. Soft body. Kind and gentle self-compassion.
I am a catalyst for others, helping people continue, over their entire life span - preconception, conception, in the womb and after - to grow, learn, heal so that each person can live their deepest longings. This is my passion.
Adventurer, lover of beauty, seeking clarity, harmony & balance. Compassionate. Just. Fair. Grateful. Hugely grateful.
