The Awakened Method shifts the patterns of dysregulated and fragmented behavioral cycles through healing the “earliest memory".
Awakened Therapist holds somatic experiential space allowing one's story to integrate into mind-body-earth story-lines to present moment living. Our life's stores express through our bodies as health or dis-ease. All accounts have joys, growth, shock, and trauma. It's the earliest stories of trauma and shock that dysregulate the mind-body-earth connection leaving our system fragmented. Affecting health, relationships, and life experience as a whole. This perspective reveals the critical fact that people are intimately connected with, embedded in, and inseparable from our first story, birth. Grasping this fact deeply shifts our understanding of how to heal the human psyche.
The Awakened Method is body-oriented somatic mindfulness healing therapy that uses pre & perinatal birth psychology, ecopsychology, spiritual ecology, and mindfulness modalities. Through our body-oriented somatic sessions, clients move to the earliest imprints for shifting dysregulated and fragmented patterns. The Awakened Method uses an ecological approach of interconnections to the client's environment; social, cultural, physical, educational, mental, and emotional. This evolves the client's story-line for embodied authentic living.
A moving experience that has completely changed my family's life, as well as my own, for the better. I show up, and I do the work for me. And because I've given myself fully to the work, I've lost the very things I'd been plagued and gained the one thing I thought I'd lost. Do the work, commit to the process; find the present again. Find your breath again. 10/10 would reccoment
The Awakened Method has helped me reflect on traumatic childhood experiences and understand how they are still affecting me today, such as how I handle stressful situations. This method has provided tools I can use when dealing with anxiety and thus change my typical reactions. I'm able to self-regulate and respond to others in more caring ways, especially in situations where previously I may have been impatient or angry. I'm also feeling a positive shift in my relationship with my daughter as I'm more mindful of being fully present with her when she needs my attention as opposed to being elsewhere in thought. With the Awakened Method, I'm essentially learning that it's okay to slow down, take a breath, reflect and be present in the moment so that I'm better equipped in responding to others, making thoughtful decisions and feeling more connected to people I care about most.

Healing from my own developmental traumas has been one of my biggest awakenings. Healing the dysregulated emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental self-allowed for deeper relationships to self, others, and community.
This method offers powerful support for family dynamics, individuals, teens, preconception preparation, pregnancy/birth, and parenting.
Working with a family that has a child who's body-system went from being very fragmented and dysregulated to coming into wholeness. Watching the mother see her son again for the first time in a couple of years, has been an affirmation of what can happen when clients feel safe.
As your looking for someone to hold healing space, it's important you feel safe.
