Transform your Critical Voice into an Ally: A Somatic Dialogue session 

at 1pm & 7pm CT

An active Critical Voice can sabotage your important goals. You’ll learn what your Critical Voice is really trying tell you...and no, it’s not really that you’re not good enough...that’s just the surface level message.
You’ll discover that the Critical Voice has a very helpful function and that you can use it for good in your life, once you begin relating to it differently. Your Critical Voice is your small ego self "voice of experience" who has some very young coping mechanisms. You can re-negotiate your relationship with your Critical Voice so that it becomes an ally rather than an obstacle. We will identify your inner mentor, your inner champion, and your inner cheerleader as you begin to transform the voices within into ones of encouragement and support.

6th Annual Wildman Gathering near Asheville, NC

Join us for this Earth/Air/Fire Water Initiation, co-led by 5 very experienced facilitators…a Druid, a Shaman, a Firewalker, an Energy Healer, and a BreakThrough Coach. After co-leading 24 men’s initiations over the past 11 years, I can say with confidence that this is the wildest, most exciting men’s initiation available.

Healing your Younger Selves Within: A Somatic Re-Parenting session

at 1pm & 7pm CT

This session gets you attuned to the unmet needs from your childhood that are still at play and sabotaging you today. You’ll learn how to somatically find, feel, & nurture these neglected parts of yourself. This work addresses the effects that come from not getting the kind of attention, care, and love that we needed as a child. We can use this body of tools to address long-standing patterns of relationship dysfunction and disconnection, feelings of rejection & abandonment, attachment issues, codependency, people-pleasing, feelings of low self-worth, financial struggles, and lack of follow-through for self-care (physical care areas of diet/sleep/exercise & emotional care areas of safety/connection/power.) Re-Parenting your inner child is one of the fastest ways to create a BreakThrough moment that changes how you see, hear, and hold yourself in new, more successful ways.

Focus on the Young Inner Child: A Somatic Re-Parenting session

at 1pm & 7pm CT

Inner Re-Parenting requires more than one session. It’s an ongoing dialogue with parts of you from your past. This session focuses attention on the part of you that has unmet needs from your earliest experiences. From conception through elementary school, you relied on caregivers to meet your needs for safety, care, connection, and power. When these go unmet, young children develop coping mechanisms that get in the way as an adult...such as people-pleasing, dimming our light, doubting ourselves, or isolating, to name a few. This session gets you in touch with these tender unmet needs and begins to repair by giving yourself these directly, so that you fill up your empty well and are able to give to others (and to yourself) from a full place.

The Inner Teenager: A Somatic Re-Parenting session

at 1pm & 7pm CT

Re-Parenting the Inner Teen is very different than re-parenting the young child. It requires listening in a different way and responding with more nuanced attention to the need for power. Our Inner Teen often carries our voice of outrage over unfairness, is highly attuned to rejection or criticism, is idealistic, and may  easily become disappointed or bitter. When an active Inner Teen is working against you, it can feel like self-sabotage, can make relationships difficult, and can lead to addictions. Working with the Inner Teen in an engaged way can be a fast route to behavior change.

The Inner Rebel: A Somatic Resistance session

at 1pm & 7pm CT

This session brings our full focus onto your resistance...to where you are in resistance to reality, to your life, or to a specific situation. Using Somatic tools, you’ll discover WHERE you resist, HOW your resistance is showing up, WHY you are resisting, and WHAT IT’S COSTING you. You learn exactly where you have divided yourself into two parts, with one resisting the other. And you’ll dialogue with these two parts to learn how they can work together to both get what they need...so you can accomplish your goals without fighting against your resistance the entire way.

Emotional Intelligence: A Somatic Dialogue Session

July 2, 2019   A Free First Tuesday BreakThrough Circle
If you find yourself overwhelmed by emotions, if you regret the decisions you make when you get emotional, or if you find it difficult to trust your emotions, then this session will bring you guidance. You’ll explore the role of Emotions as Messengers from your inner guidance system. Your emotions express your values. Most people don’t know how to listen to and interpret them, though, so they try to ignore them. That never goes well. Learning how to get actionable decision-making power from the clarity of your emotions is an important key to finding emotional stability in life.

 

Personal Power FOR MEN: How to Cultivate Safe, Connected Power

Tues June 25, 2019   A 90 Minute BreakThrough Circle for Men
Most men carry wounds from our past that inhibit our feelings of POWER, leading to low self-esteem, inability to take action, or a need to dominate to prove something to ourselves or others. This session zeroes in on the healthy need for empowerment and what happens when we have unmet needs around our freedom, our sovereignty, our ability to act, or our capacity to trust ourselves to be successful with life's challenges. You'll be invited to go within to find your power and let it teach you how it wants to express through you in the world. You'll also be guided into the parts of you that feel disempowered and to listen for the unmet needs that lie here, so that you can begin to meet them better. Lastly, we'll explore how to wield your power in a way that remains connected to yourself and those around you, making you more safe for the world. This allows you to step forward confidently to take action in ways that bring optimum results.

  

FOR MEN: Connection with Self and Others: Jet Fuel for the Wildman

Thurs June 20, 2019    A 90 Minute BreakThrough Circle for Men
Most men carry wounds from our past that inhibit our feelings of CONNECTION to ourselves, others, or nature, leading to loneliness, isolation, or addictions. Join us to go within to discover your specific blocks to connection to yourself, to men, to women, to authority figures, and to nature. Then allow yourself to be guided deeply within to get information from yourself for how to heal your connection wounds. This allows you to re-connect to your essence and to become available for authentic connection with others. It also often super-charges your Wildman, because feeling like you deeply belong mysteriously has this beneficial effect.
 

FOR MEN: Safety, Connection & Power:  3 Prerequisites to Feel Wildman Energy Within You

June 11, 2019    A 90 Minute BreakThrough Circle for Men
Our healthy masculine energy becomes available when we feel safe, connected, and powerful. Most men carry wounds from our past that inhibit our feelings of:
- SAFETY, leading to anxiety, overwhelm, or control issues
- CONNECTION to ourselves, others, or nature, leading to loneliness, isolation, or addictions
- POWER, leading to low self-esteem or inability to take action
This session will focus the most on Emotional Safety and how as a man I can meet this need for myself, making me more available.
When we discover the unmet needs that lie at the root of the Safety, Connection, and Power wounds in our lives, we recover our Wildman!
 

Safety, Connection & Power: A Three Session Series FOR MEN

Tues June 11:   Emotional Safety

Emotional Intelligence: A Somatic Dialogue Session

June 4, 2019    A Free First Tuesday BreakThrough Circle

You’ll explore the role of Emotions as Messengers from your inner guidance system. Your emotions express your values. Most people don’t know how to listen to and interpret them, though, so they try to ignore them. That never goes well. Learning how to get actionable decision-making power from the clarity of your emotions is an important key to finding emotional stability in life. 

 

Hear Yourself Wisely: A Somatic Dialogue session

May 28, 2019   Free BreakThrough Circle
Learn how to attune your attention to the most active parts of your unconscious mind. This session gets you listening to parts of you that you’ve been ignoring so you can gather wisdom that hasn’t yet been fully available to you. You’ll learn how to dialogue with your body’s deeper wisdom through specific areas of the body where you feel sensations. Learning how to listen to and trust your body sensations and inner voices in new ways leads to taking actions that are more aligned to your deeper values. It creates inner harmony which feels like deep, trusted guidance...like truth from deep in your bones. Such clarity brings the confidence to take powerful, decisive action, which leads to success. 

 

See Yourself Clearly: A Somatic Mirror Work session

May 14, 2019   A Free BreakThrough Circle
Gain clarity about how you see yourself and the impact that your current self-perception is having on your life. This is highly specific to you and is a great starting place for inner work. This is not a session of saying affirmations you don’t believe while looking into a mirror. It’s a facilitated journey asking questions of yourself...about what you see in the mirror...and then listening deeply to what you say. It’s about SEE-ing you exactly as you see yourself and being honest with what you see and feel. This work can often bring up emotions of sadness, joy, anger, fear, or shame to be worked with directly. This set of tools is especially useful when working with low confidence, self-esteem, financial issues, or shame.
