Our bodies hold our life stories within us; from our origins and earliest experiences in the womb all the way to the present moment.
These life stories, in cooperation with the environments in which we hold them, express our joy or our pain through our bodies as health or as dis-ease. All stories have joys, growth, shock, and trauma. It’s the stories of trauma and shock that dysregulate the mind-body-earth connection- leaving our system fragmented and affecting health, relationships, and our life experience as a whole.
The Awakened Method weaves pre & perinatal birth psychology, ecopsychology, & spiritual psychology through a continuum relationship field rekindling the connection to Authentic Self, Community, and Mother Earth. Our story from the womb brings a contextual understanding of how we form relationships with self, others, community, and the planet. When looking through this lens we can understand how climate change, disease, war, and our current political system has evolved.
“I’m honored to hold space as you explore your story and find resources to bring more functionality, clarity, and connection to your authentic self, for a life full of exploration.”
What Will I Learn In Our Sessions?
1. Identify the fragmented and dysregulated “7 early identities” beliefs.
2. Learn your body’s storyline in relation to beliefs.
For example: “When I am in fear I freeze and don’t know what to do, I feel stuck, so then I run from the situation.”
As an example: We may tell ourselves, ‘I am unlovable, which means you will leave me. But maybe, if I work hard enough…’.
3. Be able to identify fragmented and dysregulated emotions in the body and how it has been a coping resource from the earliest parts of your life for connection and protection.
This assisted us as an infant and toddler but does not serve as an adult.
4. Build a new relationship with that part of you that was not held how you needed in those early moments, to repattern belief systems and behavioral rhythm.
5. Use guided resourcing to learn to feel safe in our mind-body and to prevent us from droppiing into anxiety, depression and the feeling of being overwhelmed.
6. Understand how unmet needs as a child continue and show up in our behavioral rhythm affecting boundary setting with self and relationships.
7. Learn the effects of emotion held in the body and how it affects our health.
The outcome: Clients will…
1. Be Present and engage with what is happening inside the body and the world outside.
2. Have energy, color, fullness, expressiveness, and engagement in life.
3. Feel a sense of safety, and orientation to the moment.
4. Feel a sense of well-being.
5. Have curiosity about your experience and develop the ability to describe it clearly for needs to be met.
6. Be able to respond to internal and external stimuli, make eye contact, think clearly, vocalize and actively listen.
7. Know the “adult is on board”, a witness, aware of the present moment
8. Be able to be present with their sensations in a mindful way, even difficult sensations.
9. Clearly have the capacity to differentiate your experience from others, the present form the past and the present time experience from implicit somatic memory.
10. Be able to set healthy boundaries for yourself.
11. Be able to perceive and hold the boundaries of others.
What will a session look like:
I educate you in understanding the relationships of your 7 developmental identities through a workbook, physical techniques (such as deep breathing, relaxation exercise, guided meditation and inner child work) to bring a cohesive narrative of your behavioral storyline. Some of the adjunctive physical techniques that may be used with somatic therapy include movement, biodynamic craniosacral therapy, energy work, and intuitive medicine.

Views a deeper level in the relationship between cognition and behavior. Through this lens, we understand the human mind is interdependent on the culture from which it arises. The mind and environment are experiences and actions in how culture otherwise influences cognitive and behavioral functionality.

Views a deep complex combination of sensation and feeling. How we perceive something and how we feel about it inspires our values. Emotional ecology integrates a functional relationship with needs, sensations, and feelings. Holding space through this lens allows the emotional texture of our experiences giving room for functional expression.
Views a deeper level of our economic, ethnic, cultural and gender functionality or dysregulation and fragmentation throughout the community. We support regenerative resourcing nurturing a more interdependent community for greater well-being, quality of life, and connection. Social ecology brings to light the often-overlooked fact that nearly all our present ecological problems arise from a deep-seated social conversation in the community.
“The Earth’s cry for rescue from the punishing weight of the industrial system we have created is our own cry for a scale and quality of life that will free each of us to become the complete person we know we were born to be.”
Learning how to hold space for myself and sit with uncomfortable feelings of the past have been an invaluable tool that I’ve learned while working with Jennifer. Rewiring myself to be in the present and not let past trauma make decisions for the future has been life Changing.”
