In the Mind/Body model of care, mindfulness includes an awareness of your posture, breath, coordination, thoughts, feelings, somatic sensations, and memories.
As you become familiar with the embodied experience of your life, you can reinhabit your body and soul with consistent daily practice.
Qi Gong is an ancient form of exercise, healing, and prayer, developed by the Indigenous people of China. Famous for its fluid dance-like gestures, Qi Gong focuses on deep relaxation, a balance of strength and flexibility, somatic (embodied) awareness, and emotional intelligence, all while deepening your relationship with your inner life and the natural world.
Somatic Mindfulness is a form of Trauma Release Therapy and a form of daily personal practice. This healing process involves instinctual movement and awareness, transformational breathwork, guided meditation, bodywork, Qi Gong and Shamanic Journeying.
Somatic Mindfulness is also a form of therapeutic counseling, supporting people in the process of resolving trauma, addiction, chronic pain, and autoimmune disease.
This combination of inner tranquility, inner dialogue, and somatic sensing offers an internal landscape to assess and change how you live and move through the world.
