Introduction

Doorways into the work

While each person's way towards healing is unique, here are some frameworks that I've found to be helpful for feeling into and thinking about this sacred challenge of healing.

Trauma Resiliency Training

With a focus on embodiment, this doorway leads to a strong foundation in sensory perception, pain management, releasing and healing stored patterns, growing better boundaries, nervous system regulation and having healthy inner relationships.

The techniques here arise from my decades of dealing with and healing chronic illness, attachment trauma, childhood developmental trauma, neurodivergence, performance and expressive arts, radical self-care, eco-psychology and inner journey work.

Ancestral Healing

The main body of my work centers on reconnecting and repairing our relationships with our blood lineages.

Using a systematic, safe, and slow process we enter this doorway into ongoing, healthy, present-time relations with our ancient, bright & well ancestors, in order to bring about healing for our as-yet unhealed dead and the inherited family patterns held in our bodies, minds, and souls.

Ritual Design for Life Events

Rooted in earth honoring lifeways, together we design rituals and sacred actions for better relationships with the more-than-human world.

Some themes might include: grief, death & dying, healthy transitions, making pacts with the Land and native spirits of Place, coming into wellness with All Your Relations on a soul level.

Work in this pathway arises from my relationship with sacred, earth-honoring, non-appropriative animist practices, the neuroscience of mindfulness and ecstatic states, biopsychosocial principles of wellbeing, and my professional work as a performer-creator in circus, theater and dance.
