Come Home to Yourself





Embrace the power of love.

 The indicator of any healthy culture or civilization is if it nurtured space for truth and healing.

 
Promoting health, healing, and recovery after traumatic experiences, illness and adversity

Let's be honest - life has a knack for throwing curveballs when we least expect them. 

We believe that those with the most complex life challenges were destined for great things. We see that the greatest challenges are divine gifts forming us into the person we are to become.

Our vibrant and supportive community is here to help you shift from those pesky, fearful, controlling thoughts (you know, the ones that feel like you're pushing a boulder uphill in flip-flops) into a state of balance and stability.  

​Our tool kits are a delightful cocktail of ancient wisdom, somatic practices (the body keeps the score after all), faith-based insights, and cutting-edge neuroscience. It's like having a sage, a saint, and a scientist all in your corner, cheering you on as you tackle life's challenges. We'll help you tap into that wellspring of energy within once again. We offer peer guided mentorship from self healers such as yourself in the areas of:

 

SELF LEARNING 

  • Cognitive Reframing: Learn to reshape limiting beliefs and transform challenges into opportunities for growth.

  • Emotional Intelligence:  Enhance your ability to be vulnerable, to understand and manage emotions effectively.

  • Flexibility Training: Cultivate trust via mental and physical adaptability to thrive in an ever-changing world.

  • Resilience-building tools and Inner Work: Understand and learn how to manage your energy and choose healthy options post adversity.

Get back in your body
  • Movement: Align your energy through breath and body movement. Learn how to manage your energy flow.

  • Psychosomatic Integration: Embrace the innate wisdom of your body as often a longing for redirection. Learning to listen to your body, it is much wiser than you have given it credit for.

  • Meditation: Cultivate present-moment awareness and inner peace. Yes, stillness and being, (over constant doing) is possible and productive!

Did you know?

  • 75% of individuals report experiencing stress that affects their physical or mental health (American Psychological Association, 2022)

  • Mindfulness-based interventions have been shown to reduce anxiety by 58% and depression by 57% (JAMA Internal Medicine, 2023)

  • According to the American Institute of Stress, 77% of people regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress, which directly impacts our body's energy balance

  • A study published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Research found that chronic stress is associated with a 40% reduction in the activity of natural killer cells, crucial components of our body's energy-dependent immune system. 

  • Psychological Association reports that 45% of adults lie awake at night due to stress, disrupting the circadian rhythms that regulate our energy cycles. Cortisol, often called the "stress hormone," can increase by 50-100% during periods of acute stress, significantly altering our body's energy metabolism

  • "Psychoneuroendocrinology" revealed that participants with high chronic stress had telomeres (the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes) that were shorter by the equivalent of 9-17 additional years of aging, directly impacting cellular energy production

 I have overcome the mental and emotional effects rooted in what we call "trauma". From childhood adversities (ACE's), eating disorder, autoimmune disorder, kidney failure, years on dialysis, heartbreak, failed relationship (oh no, not the dreaded narcissist), failing health, oh and 2 organ transplants. I even tried to die my way out of my life, experiencing a near death experience. My "story" could be endless!

I caught on early how the western health model virtually ignores the impacts trauma plays within illness manifestation while highlighting the good cases most often from patients with higher social determinants of health, lifestyle, and relational circumstances. 

What I came to see was my body had been stuck in fear, fight, and flight. My body was reacting to my deepest and well hidden, inner state. I traded in the broken body model and persecution of illness as bad and embraced radical self compassion and began my own self healing journey. Through somatic practices such as  yoga, martial arts, acupuncture, and massage, coupled with a deep spiritual regeneration and mindfulness philosophies I created a story where I could ground back into my body safely. I let go and honored my stories and traumatic experiences as sacred lessons while creating a conscious foundation to move beyond fear.

For the formidable population the western model has failed or did not take further in their healing, I see clearly that when we commit to coupling our illness management with inner work (for those who score in the ACE's) we create pathways from polarization, pain, and illness (lack of love) to pure potential, well-being, and love (consciousness). We must address how trauma impacts our health. And how over-identifying with the patient model may be temporarily empowering but ultimately guides us further from inner wholeness.

Illness and hardship ARE healing I have discovered. It's what we have been told that holds us back from recognizing the gifts sooner.

Let me share with you how I choose my own health narrative and left behind the story that illness and struggles are bad and wrong. I now honor the most complex events as divine teachers.  I got my life back. If I can do this, you can too!

We must always seek ways to grow our capacity for love and awareness.
