Safety, Belonging and Being Here

December 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PST

$30.00 – $60.00

3 hr. Online Intensive Retreat

When we gather in a safe and compassionate space we are building capacity in the nervous system for the tenderness of the human heart. Yes….it can hurt a lot to be a human being. ♡
 
The experience of safety and belonging lives in the body. Because safety and belonging are essential for survival we seek them at great cost to ourselves. When we were little we dissociated from our bodies when our needs weren’t met. Seeking is an innocent attempt to reestablish safety and belonging that repeats itself over and over again.  All too often we are unsuccessful.
 
“When you are excluded or rejected, your life inevitably tends to narrow into a concern and sometimes an obsession with that exclusion and the attempt to change that.” ~ John O’Donohue
 
The body doesn’t care about approval or popularity but It does care about safety and belonging.  The safe container of the group and the practices I teach are oriented towards the restoration of safety and belonging at a deep and felt sense of knowing in the body.
 
“Our bodies know that they belong; it is our minds that make our lives so homeless.” ~ John O’Donohue

Whether you are new to these kind of practices or a seasoned practitioner you are welcome to join us. The practices are simple and direct and the shared space is safe, warm and welcoming.

“Candace embodies gentleness, warmth and sincerity that invites settling and deep rest. The nurturing slowness and softness of her voice communicates, “it’s safe here.

Her particular focus on the role of the nervous system in healing trauma and spiritual awakening allows her students to meet the past as it arises in the unconditional body of right now.”

Candace will guide the group in gentle neurosensory (nervous system) practices and engage in dialogue and questions with participants.

“Thank you for guiding us. Your guidance is like a lantern in the dark woods.”

I am so grateful that even though you play the role of a teacher you are always a person first. I love and appreciate that about you! ~ Participant

I look forward to welcoming you into this safe and sacred space.

Love, Candace
