An active, somatic approach to personal exploration and growth.
Somatic Inquiry is a holistic approach to finding direction, goal setting and achievement.
Through a combination of verbal dialogue and embodied practices, we explore your life questions and unmet goals to gain more clarity and freedom, heal the nervous system, and develop a broader understanding of yourself.
Somatic Inquiry draws upon many modes of communication with unconscious mind and body wisdom including mindfulness, dialogue, movement, touch, breathwork, visualization, and art. This approach to personal development is an in-the-moment process, directed by and toward your personal goals and curiosities. It is an active compliment to Rosen Method Bodywork, as well as psychotherapy and medicine work.
Somatic Inquiry is most recommended for:
Exploring a Particular Question | Creative Stagnation | Choosing Direction
Embodying Healthy Boundaries | Intimacy and Relationships
Integration of Powerful Positive Experiences (Spiritual, Psychedelic, Relational)
What to expect during a session:
+First time sessions are 90-minutes long.
+Subsequent sessions can be 60 or 90-minutes, per your preference.
+No two sessions will look the same. If you have been in either talk therapy or coaching, talking may feel familiar. However, time will be spent engaging with imagination and embodied experience as well as talking, in no routine order.
What to expect following a session:
+It is typical to feel more grounded, vulnerable, creative, inspired and / or emotional than your usual. Go with it in whatever ways feel comfortable and safe.
+Welcome the unexpected – memories, desires, dreams, solutions are all likely to flow into awareness.
How to make the most of your time here:
+Wear comfortable clothing that you can move in easily, like athletic wear.
+Understand that personal development is a process. Depending on what is bringing you in, regular weekly or bi-weekly sessions are recommended.
+Follow your sessions with quiet, screen-free time — take a walk in nature, write or draw, dance, yoga, meditate, create.
