Clients and Friends,
The term ‘havening’ is a word used in psychology today to describe a simple self-soothing technique. It is as simple as hugging yourself and stroking your upper arms from shoulder to elbow. It acts to settle the nervous system from anxiety. As the stress of the outer world impresses itself upon us we may find ourselves pushed to the point of overwhelm. The availability of simple tools like ‘havening’ becomes even more important to building inner resource.
I am encouraged by the deep inner connection I experience each time I stop and consciously CHOOSE to breathe and ground myself in the reality of my inner life, the ‘safe haven’ of the sacredness of my heartspace? This feels so much more powerful when I join with others to do the same.
If you are feeling overwhelmed or are stressed by your personal life challenges and the outer events happening during this unique time, I invite you to join us each Friday at 1:30pm EST for a Community Settling experience. If you are interested please register here (via email) and you will receive instructions on how to join the session. If you are unable to join personally, consider listening to the settling posted in the self-help section of my website as a way to support your own self-healing.
I will not be available for live sessions on Friday July 10th or 17th and encourage you to listen to the recorded sessions. I have had encouraging feedback from those who have listened to the recorded sessions and I find great value in listening to them myself. The group experience is still exceedingly potent even when recorded.
Following the governor’s “Responsible Restart Ohio” plan, I have opened my office and am now available for sessions using the updated protocols found on my website. If you are not comfortable with rescheduling, please know that I fully support you and encourage you to reach a place of trust and confidence within yourself before you do.
For those who need additional personal support, I am continuing to offer individual phone/remote sessions. For more information and to check out what other people are saying, please read about it here, and contact me to schedule an appointment.
May we all be guided by the wisdom of our hearts and find support in our shared experience.
