Nature Sense

Connect to yourself in nature with a guided exploration through the senses to help ground, connect to the earth and the elements.
Enjoy opening to the beauty of nature through observation and a felt sense of being as we gently explore our natural environment.

Connection

I bring my expertise in somatic body therapy, mindfulness and herbal medicine into the outdoors, where our playground awaits us. Here we begin the journey of re-connecting to ourselves, discovering what brings us joy and feeling more alive.

It's like unblocking the pores of our skin to allow in more energy and light, and creating space to breathe more deeply.

Balance

When we give ourselves the opportunity to slow down and create spaciousness, we can find balance and steadiness within our busy lives. This connection to the earth becomes our platform from where we can release tension and fear, simply through breath and awareness of our body.

Trust

Be led on a journey with your senses, like a child exploring a wonderland for the first time. Trust your body to show you who you are, and be curious of your response.

Be prepared to go barefoot for a while on this journey and face the elements. Recognize we are made up of all the elements - earth, fire, air and water. When we make that connection in our bodies, we allow everything to flow better - hormones, nerves, blood, lymph, cellular processes. We can thrive physically and feel better, be more clearer and rested.

Acceptance

Sometimes we'll meet resistance to opening our senses and going deeper into our bodies. Fear is there to protect us from feeling something that's perhaps uncomfortable or painful. So we tune into what's there, and recognize its part to play in our bodies. Then we simply be with that, like an attentive friend loving and accepting us just as we are.

We breathe and drop in to the felt sense of our body, connecting to the earth. Giving thanks.
