A Gentle and Safe Approach to Healing Trauma

Free to Be Here: An Awakened Path to Healing Trauma is a 8 week online course created by Trauma Therapist, Organic Intelligence Certified Coach and experienced Nervous System Practitioner Candace Kirby and co-facilitated by Jessica Holland; inspired by fairytales and myth, a storyteller at heart; herbalist; pattern breaker and student of the nervous system.

There is no real blue print for how to navigate trauma and the resulting impact on the physiology except for the intelligence of our own system that knows how to heal and self-organize.

The course material will help you understand and tend to the impact of trauma on your nervous systems.

The practices are restorative; slow, simple and repetitive which the nervous system needs to settle and relax into her nature of gentle presence and flow. The safe container of the group will offer consistent support, compassionate presencing and attunement for your nervous system.

“Because of the gentle and compassionate nature of Candace’s personality her private sessions and programs are safe enough and slow enough for the sensitive physiology of those who have experienced trauma; chronic illness, complex grief or the symptoms of Benzo withdrawal.

Candace has a quality of warmth, tenderness and stability that naturally invites settling and deep rest. The nurturing slowness and ease of her approach communicates, ‘it’s safe here”. She invites the nervous system to rest.”
I hope you’ll join us.

This course will help you:

  • Understand the impact of past and present trauma on the physiology and why we suffer
  • Gentle and consistent care for your nervous system
  • Pause slow down, rest and find ease in the present moment with the support of the group and consistent guided practices
  • Notice that the present moment environment is consistently offering support.
  • Align with what is helpful and supportive and let go of what isn’t
  • Build capacity to be here by first building a foundation of safety, stability and unconditional acceptance
  • Shift through the repetition of slow and nourishing new practices
  • Feel safe in the company of others. Perhaps for the first time
  • Learn to trust that the Love you long for is already and always here and that you are not separate from that Love
  • Know yourself as you really are

“You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”
~ Mary Oliver – Wild Geese

In this course we will engage in teachings, simple present moment practices; meditation, grounding, orientation and creative practices followed by questions and dialogue.

This is a slow and gentle process.

“I am so deeply grateful to have found these practices. I wish they had an icon for jumping up and down and clapping your hands. Maybe doing cartwheels. Thank you, Candace, for this simple, gentle way of feeling safe in my own skin.”
