Heart Open Wide

I want to share with you a little bit about what this work means to me.
And it is so much better to describe a session for how it might feel rather than how it might look.
It is deep, soul embracing work.
Nurturing, enriching, healing and deeply moving work.
Where not only my hands and arms connect with another but also my soul.
To be held, for a prolonged period whether that be physically, emotionally or spiritually is deeply intimate.
That’s what makes this work so nurturing and incredibly special.
It touches you in way that is not physical at all.
It requires, from me, a heart wide open.
To meet you where you are at and that might change from moment to moment or session to session.
To share in your pain.
To alleviate your loneliness.
To acknowledge your trauma.
To fill that basic human need for touch.
To connect in a much more meaningful way than our modern living gives us time for or sees as important for that matter.
A space and time where you are totally seen.
No pretences. No judgement. No advice.
There are no words that could adequately describe what a session might look like yet imagine being held in a totally safe, peaceful space when all about you seems lost or out of control.
Thoughts in your head have been driving you to distraction.
Or, perhaps, your mind is calm, but you feel disconnected.
Just letting go.
Simply seen and held and letting go.
It requires from another the courage step into this unknown. To step into a feeling of vulnerability yet with a feeling of empowerment that comes with the understanding of boundaries and consent.
Empowerment that, in this moment, you don’t need to pretend to be anything other than yourself or feel anything that isn’t authentic.
I feel incredibly privileged to be able to do this work.
