Liberating Our Healing:
A 12-month virtual connection, full of embodied anatomy & exploring body function.
Guided by Dr. Kaeri.
Healing is a natural act. Our bodies are always working to take care of us. Our bodies tell stories and communicate to help us move towards healing. Our bodies (generally) don’t communicate through words, they communicate through experiences. In the medical system you may have heard the word “symptoms” to describe those body experiences. I prefer “experiences” because it widens the possibility of the descriptions that can be used.
Liberating Our Healing is an offering created to help build and grow a deeper understanding of our bodies and how to connect with them. As this understanding grows, it offers us an engaged relationship to our inner-knowing. Trust and a feeling of safety are essential for full healing. When we don’t understand something, we often develop fear. Unfortunately, most of the time, our school systems, culture, and the US medical system don’t teach us about our bodies and have created a narrative that all body communication is a sign that something is “wrong”, we are “broken,” and “need to be fixed.” This framing doesn’t honor our bodies' innate healing and wisdom or the truth that health and wellness are different for each person.
The Liberating Our Healing series is intentionally created to support you to learn more about your body: the parts, how it works, why it works; how to connect with your body and how to more fully listen to and understand your body experiences and messages. I fully believe — and have witnessed time and time again — that as we better understand our bodies and their communication, we gain trust, feel safer in our bodies, and more deeply support our body’s natural ability to heal.
Many people (possibly some of you) learned through life experiences that it was easier or safer not to connect to their body experiences. This pattern develops as a protective tool…which was helpful for a time and may no longer serve you. In order to give ourselves permission to connect with our bodies it can be helpful to explore our relationship to our bodies. Sometimes starting this connection can feel difficult, big and/or scary. It may also feel exciting, relieving or any other emotion. Whatever you are feeling is okay. It is where you are in this moment. I spaciously honor that we are all in different places in our journey of body connection. In the Intro class we will discuss ways we connect inward and invite the process with gentleness and compassion.
Feeling connected with our bodies.
Knowing what you need for healing.
Feeling seen in the truth of your experience. Feeling powerful as you navigate your healing journey.
Let's do this together...
