My calling is to heal the Golden Web of Life as it manifests within the body and energy-body of my client in the moment in time we meet, but also into the past and out of the future. I use all of the tools- physical, energetic and spiritual- I have at my disposal to do so. And yet, it is only possible for me to do this if you work with me- if you say yes to your life, to your path, if you long for connection with your own heart and soul and long to live a life of wholeness. It is only possible to do this work together if we work together.
For each person the doorway is different- for some, they come with physical maladies. Others come because they want to lose weight or they want to learn how to eat well or they have an autoimmune disease and want to utilize nutrition and herbs to bring it into remission. Others long for support towards wholeness and resources to reduce their stress level, to learn to love themselves, to stand in their power. All of my patients who come to see me, do so because they realize that what i offer is actually much deeper than the reason they came, a path to the source, the deepest longing we each carry. It is guidance home to oneself- being at home in the body, part of the wild earth, saying yes to life. It is the path you alone can travel, with my support and guidance as a wilderness mentor, to your one true place of belonging within the universe. The Image at the center of the Truth you were born with, your Soul.
Perhaps the greatest illness of our time is the disconnect from oneself and the natural world. I could say, the effects of our civilization, the trauma of having been domesticated. I could say, there is no problem, there is only a re-membering, a re-wilding, a return to that original face before you were born. A growing up into true alive adulthood.
TOUCHING SOUL TREATMENTS ~ In my office – 2-3 Hours
We spend time together at the beginning listening to the story that is being told through you. Moving from the personal to the mythical, the woundedness to wholeness, lack to resource, we explore the deep themes and facets of your wholeness and fragments that need integration. As if you were a part of the landscape, fitting into your own ecological niche, we explore the map of your psyche.
The next step is to bring your story into your body through bodywork, deep imagination, coming alive in your senses and opening to your feelings. Mystery is invited to arise and guide us through this portion of the treatment while we chart the Map of your psyche onto the physical landscape of your body, weaving a path of wholeness between the apparently disparate or separate parts. This weaving together of you within the Golden Web of Life, re-members your original wholeness rather than focusing on your brokenness, and encourages parts unknown or previously off-limits to slowly make themselves available to be seen and felt. Sometimes drumming or sound are incorporated during the journey, sometimes we create a “4 directions circle” within which to invite a part of your Self to be with you in a new embodied way (before or after the bodywork).
Afterwards, you tell your story from the journey of the bodywork and we work together to bring it over the threshold into every day consciousness, to deepen any insights and shifts and to integrate them into your sense of self through, for example, mirroring, art practice and movement. And I always give an invitation to go out into Nature to further explore and deepen what you are currently working with.
PERSONAL WILDERNESS GUIDE ~ Outside – 3-4 Hours (incl. my travel time)
We meet in the landscape of the natural world, in a powerful process of coming into contact with our own wholeness through the wholeness of the wildness around us. As Martin Shaw tells us, there is perhaps little wilderness in Europe, but there is still wildness. Within you, and within the matrix of the other than human world around you, there is still wildness to be found. The focus here is to understand ourselves as a part of the natural world around us and to return to the feeling of wonder and being at home that is evoked within our deepest selves when we are out “on the land”. The other than human world reflects our souls, our truest and most unique Self, our wholeness and the parts of us that are still needing to be integrated or welcomed home. The experience is about exploring the landscape of the Body of the Earth and at the same time the landscape of our Psyches. Our time together is divided into three parts in which we 1. enter the landscape of your heart as well as the landscape of the wildness around us, 2. spend time together or solo time in self designed ceremony or explorations or with an invitation for a wander, and 3. tell the story, to be seen and heard in your new wholeness, and be mirrored by me to deepen the experience. Contact with the earth body and our own bodies, Wanders, drumming and sound, 4 Directions Circles, self-designed ceremony, art practices, etc.
Personal Wilderness Coaching ~ over Skype – 1-3 Hours
In this case, we meet for an hour or two over Skype before you then go out onto the land alone (with an invitation for a wander from me) and then we speak again for an hour when you return, either on the same day or at a later time. I then give you suggestions and exercises for practices to further deepen your experience and integrate any shifts into your daily life.
My Mentoring Fee is 75€ an Hour
