For Practitioners & Professionals: Introduction to Somatic Pre & Perinatal Psycho-Spirituality & Health
imprinting: conception – newborn
consciousness and the soul’s journey into life
the prenatal foundations for attachment
what supports and impedes full embodiment
listening to the somatic voice of pre-verbal imprinting
health issues originate in the primal period
bringing new resources to old wounds and imprints
the power to heal when we listen empathically to early places
We will explore early development and spirituality, the Soul’s journey into life, and embodiment from conception to the newborn period. Discover your own early imprinting and reconnect with your primary consciousness as a path to learning about this foundational period.
We are conscious and sentient when we from come from Source towards our new life and family; connecting with this very early part of ourselves often puts us back in touch with why we are here and raises fascinating questions about the mystery of embodiment and from whence we came. It can bring illumination and coherence to why we feel the way we do and what our physiology is telling us about our emotional and somatic experiences. This period of development affects our relationships, attachment, health, our deepest beliefs about people and the world, whether we feel safe or not or are living in survival or thriving.
My teaching style is somatic experiential with some content. It is based on a foundation of much training in SPPPH with leading pioneers in the field, as well as many years of both professional and personal experience. Books, research, and other resources will be recommended for those who are interested.

Therapists, health practitioners and birthing professionals. This is an introduction and not a practitioner training in this field.
I am also open to running this series for an already formed group, a closed group, or an organization and can tailor it to your specific needs.
