Learning the trauma release technique, Somatic Experiencing, developed by Dr. Peter Levin has been a beautiful process. I just completed my last module of the 1st year, Beginning level. Working with my own trauma and nervous system has been immeasurable useful in this journey toward becoming a practioner. Grateful for these moments of growth. Are you interested in working with me in a session? Blessings of robust, resilient and resourced nervous system! #somaticexperiencing #septraining #seattle #pnw #pacificnorthwest #rain #dougfir #evergreens #trail #love
On the other side of trauma. I’m now able to hike for 2.5 hours on incline by myself, I’m willing to take more risk and step into the world. It’s incredible to navigate such a huge ordeal on every level of my being. Happy to be home in Oregon where my feet are deeply rooted and the support is solid. Come visit me!! I’ll be co-leading our Spring Nourish Retreat: Yantra & Yoga with @sarahyantra

Let it snow! Grateful for this mountain, these trees, this land and time with loved ones. Grateful for legs that get me around. The healing process can be longer than we would like. We heal on many levels in a circular pattern. Being patient and compassionate with myself, being a friend to myself is my path of integration. #grateful #portland #love #snow #christmas #healing #integration #lovingkindness
As the climate changes I question if I have changed enough to meet what is coming. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. The National Climate Assessment Executive Summary was released on “black Friday” read it today. Link in my bio.
My heart breaks for the tragedy and horrific loss due to the raging fires in my home state, California. I send my prayers to friends, family, the land and animals in Malibu and surrounding area affected by this apocalyptic fire. Climate change is affecting us all. Meanwhile Drumpf is tweeting nonsense without words of compassion or support for those who have lost everything and the brave men and women who risk their lives to protect and serve. The firefighters are heroes. I’ve been holding quiet vigil since I learned about it praying for rain and the winds to settle. Sending so much love to those who have lost so much. I pray you find the strength and support to rebuild, heal and rise. #california #love #woolseyfire #climatechangeisreal #fundourforests #compassion
