The On-line Scheduler is up to date, so feel free to schedule there same as before.
Monday morning Meditations, 10-10:45am on Zoom
These guided meditations are 30-minutes and are designed as a "system check". They are a simple way of reducing anxiety and stress, and a great way to start the week. By becoming present with our whole selves and feeling into what is alive for us in the present moment, it becomes easier to see what we need to move through the day, the week, or SIP, in general. The meditation changes every few weeks and has included the 5-Senses, the 4-Bodies and currently the Earth-Heart Meditation.

Our mission is to help our clientele navigate more gracefully the transitions or "seasons" of the human experience. By "Touching In" to body, mind and spirit with presence during these inevitable transitions, we begin to access our own innate wisdom and creativity, and learn to release the holding patterns which keep us from evolving and living our lives more fully. Our skills and experience are offered for the little ones all the way to the old ones. May all beings be happy.
By consciously Touching In to our body, mind and spirit during life's transitions, we lessen our suffering and learn to release the holding patterns which keep us from evolving. With mindfulness and intention, we learn to access our own innate health, wisdom and creativity to live our lives more fully now.
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a subtle healing modality borne out of Osteopathy, the ancient art of bone setting. CST works on the physical, as well as, the emotional and subtle energetic levels to optimize the function and motility of the Craniosacral System (CS), thereby supporting the bodies entire system from the inside out.
The Craniosacral System consists of the brain, the spinal cord, 22 cranial bones, the central nervous system and the cerebro-spinal fluid that surrounds and protects these structures and processes. It extends from the bones of the skull, face, and mouth (the cranium) down to the sacrum. By tuning into the CS system, and particularly the cerebrospinal fluid, the practitioner is able to assist in the bodies' release of tension patterns, (both physical and emotional) thus allowing the bones, muscles, and tissues to move more freely. This freedom, in turn, allows the innate wisdom or "inner healer" of the body to come forth and express itself. Most clients experience a deep calm or rest both during and post-session that feels restorative and enlivening, and leaves them feeling more resourced within.
Craniosacral Therapy has many health benefits:
Balances the autonomic nervous system
Mitigates the stress responses of the body
Clears restrictions in the fascial tissues
Balances energy levels in the body
Helps joints recover from injury
Heals strains in the soft tissues
Strengthens the immune system
Improves mental functioning
Aids integration of life experiences
Improves sleep and thus dreaming life
Increases feelings of connection & wholeness within oneself and with the world.
Please call with any questions you may have. I look forward to connecting with you.
