Somatic Psychotherapy is based on the knowledge that to effectively heal and transform as embodied beings, we must include the body in the therapeutic process. A session might include guided meditation, movement, or breathing techniques to help you experience relaxation and the ability to feel and express emotions. Somatic Psychotherapy also involves working with you to develop body based skills to help you stay at ease even in the face of difficult experiences from the past as well as in the present.
Traditionally psychotherapy has been about understanding our experience as human beings in relationship to the people that are most important in our lives. Eco-Therapy takes this a step further to consider our relationship with our natural environment. We look at how we are affected by the elements that surround us and work to connect to the resources available to us in nature such as the spaciousness of the sky, the warm embrace of the sun, or the wisdom on the ever changing seasons. Eco-Therapy is practiced both indoors and outdoors and can include a variety of techniques including guided mediation, movement, and sensory explorations.
Energy Healing-Syntara System
WHAT IS SYNTARA SYSTEM?
This body of work was developed by my amazing sister Gitanjali Hemp. She developed Syntara System as a unifying energetic model after being certified in over a dozen different healing modalities over her 18 years in practice as an energy worker and integrative healer. Like many energy healing models, Syntara System brings healing energy to specific areas of the body, but what makes Syntara System unique is that it also affects the causative layers of our energetic fields. This means that in addition to bringing healing to the physical body, Syntara System also works on the layers of the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our existence. In practical terms this means that the energies behind our behavioral, emotional, and thought patterns can be addressed within this modality including but not limited to resolving trauma, creating appropriate energetic boundaries in relationship, and coming into greater alignment with one’s soul purpose or intent.
HOW SYNTARA SYSTEM WORKS
Throughout our soul’s journey we have accumulated karmas that distort our relationship to our most profound source and fundamental nature. As a practitioner of Syntara System, I work with people to connect to their own relationship with source energy. Source energy is the dynamic life force within and all around us that creates life. All manner of healing unfolds from this primary relationship. Any aspects of a person’s being that are not resonating with the energy of source will reveal themselves and we work together to gently bring more harmony and cohesion into the system.
THIS SYSTEM CAN HELP YOU:
Move through limiting belief systems. Release emotional residue from various forms of trauma. Transform dysfunctional relational and behavioral patterns. Relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety with greater ease.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A SESSION
A Syntara System session begins with an opportunity for you to share what is presenting itself for healing in your life. I may lead you through a guided meditation to help you get into your body and connect with a sense of resource, then I will invite you to share your intention and let you know what to expect during the session. In person sessions are done fully clothed and laying down on a massage table. Skype and phone sessions are also available and this modality works just as well from a distance. After the energy healing part of the session is complete we will talk about what came up and how you can integrate what moved during the session. At this point I may give you body based practices to help you continue to work with what came up on your own.
