Reconnecting: Sensing Our Way Home

A gentle and intuitive path of healing trauma and awakening to our true nature of Presence.

Reconnecting: Sensing Our Way Home is an 8 week online course created by Trauma Therapist, Organic Intelligence Certified Coach and experienced Nervous System Practitioner Candace Kirby.

“The whole universe is contained within a single human being – you.” ~ Rumi

Childhood trauma is a loss of safety, trust and healthy reliance on others; and a loss of connection to the present moment and our true nature of goodness.

When the physiology of a child is overwhelmed by an event or events their inability to digest the overwhelm will cause their system to split off and give way to a false persona. This is necessary to the child’s survival. This split is an impulse away from authenticity and towards survival.

The traumatized system has often never experienced the body or the present moment as safe.

This course is a slow, gentle and intuitive path of connecting with and learning to trust our direct experience. No manipulation. No tricks. No strategies. No attempt to master the body; only deep reverence and respect for the intelligence of a system that has survived.

Because many of us start on this path with a lot of undigested trauma and nervous system dysregulation we go slow and lay a strong foundation to support our physiology in ways it has never been supported before. To heal trauma we must restore what was lost; safety, trust and healthy reliance on ourself and others without shaking the foundation of the survival system too quickly.

This work of restoration is intuitive and nuanced work that requires a safe space, safe people and a slow and skilful approach.

I hope you’ll join us.

The course material including practices are restorative; slow, simple and repetitive which the physiology needs to settle and begin to come into regulation. The safe container of the group will offer consistent support and compassionate attunement for your nervous system.

“This gentle work with Candace has been such an enormous gift. No pushing, no forcing. Allowing and welcoming everything as a real practice not as spiritual bypass. Not just meaningless words that cannot be sustained, but true substance, which allows and heals everything. I am here, I have ground to stand on, I am gaining agency. I feel and know and love myself. Thank you so much.” ~ Participant

This course will help you:

  • Understand the impact of past and present trauma on the physiology and why we suffer.
  • Tend to your nervous system states with more understanding and confidence.
  • 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.
  • Feel safe in the company of others. Perhaps for the first time.
  • Make peace with your mind by understanding how nervous system states fuel our thoughts.
  • Learn how to soften and release what’s been held in the body.
  • Come to know yourself through your direct experience.

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

This is a slow and gentle process.
