THE PROBLEM
Death & Trauma Challenge Love
When the pain of loss becomes too great, there is a denial of love that overwhelms the heart. This creates a form of emotional armouring that is at the heart of all suffering.

When the heart shuts down, the connection to spirit, mind and body is disrupted. Forget enjoyment, flow or creativity.

This is the road back. Enter The Resilience Zone. Become a pro at moving freely beyond trauma & grief. We are a community of resilient creators.

GO YOUR OWN WAY
How to forge your OWN path.
 In the aftermath of pain and loss we are more isolated now than ever before. No one has escaped the cataclysmic losses of the pandemic without scars.

The crux of change is at hand for all of us. Yet, in the moment of stillness, there is choice.

As millions of people protest across the planet and the shards of our broken political systems are revealed, huge change is at hand with the weather, the atmosphere, nutrition, medicine and survival itself in a constant state of flux. It's time for a re-direct. Stop relying on outside success. Discover the hidden wisdom of your own being. Discover physical, emotional and spiritual resilience as a path for living in renewal. Want continuous support?

EMOTIONAL CLEARING IRest Medtations

Transmute charged emotions, so that they no longer block you. Clear them with a simple process of guided meditation that expands awareness. Creates a direct connection to your personal spiritual and creative resources. In the past, it took forever because you did not know what you know now. You didn't have the tools. Harness the power of emotion to create an expressway through the minefield of the past. The cultural programming to dismiss emotion is denies the negative effect these vibrations have on your life. Yet, it's binding and keeps you stuck an ever-repeating cycle of trauma. Instead, learn to quickly and easily integrate all that prevents you from experiencing the full grace and majesty of living fully in communication with the divinity of your soul and the world around you. This expansion of awareness shifts the effect of the vibrations you emit energetically. Discover direct access to spontaneous synchronicity, insight and inner guidance. iRest offers objective freedom from negativity held in the body, often bought into and made up by someone else's version of who you are. When you see your own story as fiction, you acknowledge that all perception is composed of beliefs and expectations. Life is not logical. Enter into a way to create beauty out of heartbreak. Change the pattern. Change the narrative and experience what happens through a new lens, one that is far more fulfilling. Drive the narrative deliberately, and you change your reality. This restorative form of meditation allows you to surrender thought, while moving your awareness. This is what activates your soul remembrance of the dance of delight that is the essence of embodiment. Cultivate your inner knowing by floating like a river into that zone beyond thought, beyond words. For in that flow, presence leaps in to fill the vacuum that creativity cannot resist! #EXPANDWITHTHEFLOW

WRITING LESSONS

Innate Intelligence of Mind resides in crystal clarity, structure and organization. Most minds are indulged, in charge and without any structure. To make sense of life, people make up stories about what happens. Resilient people are different from most people, because they learn to change their perspective. A study of the Craft of Writing Fiction reveals how to access a narrative that works for you instead of against you. It provides a wellspring that allows overwhelming emotions to be expressed through a new lens. The leap from overwhelm to understanding is made through story. When you see your own story as fiction, you acknowledge that all perception is composed of beliefs and expectations. Life is not logical. Enter into a way to create beauty out of heartbreak. Change the pattern. Change the narrative and experience what happens through a new lens, one that is far more fulfilling. Drive the narrative deliberately, and you change your reality. This workshop allows you to surrender thought, while moving your awareness. This is what activates your soul remembrance of the dance of delight that is the essence of embodiment. Cultivate your inner knowing by floating like a river into that zone beyond thought, beyond words. For in that flow, presence leaps in to fill the vacuum that creativity cannot resist! #WRITEWITHTHEFLOW
Women's Circles
Connect in the Safety of Sacred Space
"I believe the feminine rising is an opportunity for tremendous shifts in consciousness and on our planet," Paula Mallis. "Creating space for this pivotal time where we are shifting, changing and transforming."

The Surpass Circle is a weekly support group for women. To surpass is transformative. It means to grow bigger than, not just survive. It means to move into a new aliveness even after major life challenges.

Purpose: To enrich our lives with deeper connections to all that is, including ourselves and each other.The pandemic of isolation and lockdowns has shown us how vital human connection is to wellbeing, health and vitality.
We meet in circle because that is a safe space that invokes the sacredness of life. We meditate briefly together to calm the mind. We free write to learn how to articulate our thoughts, perceptions and feelings. We discuss what comes up.

When asked how to become a better communicator, Jordan Peterson responded, " It helps to read a lot. It really helps to write. So if you want to make yourself articulate, which is a very good idea, then not only should you read, but you should write. Write down what you think and if you can do that a little bit every day, 15 minutes, maybe you could steal 15 minutes a day, and it will really straighten out your thinking."

Each session introduces a new guided visualization process to support you in reaching for a greater quality of life as you mature, rather than a diminishing one! Write an entirely new Playbook for your life! #CONNECTWITHTHEFLOW

Hello! Call me a life design coach! I help you design a life that feeds your soul, irrespective of past trauma or loss. I have spent decades, since childhood, instinctively using the disruptions of trauma to enact dramatic new beginnings. I have had my hands on thousands of people as a massage therapist over 20 years, feeling the way that trauma seats itself in the tissues of the body. To survive the sheer physical stress of working with that many people in pain on a regular basis, I took on the Feldenkrais Training (2000-2004) which explained - without words! - how deeply trauma affects the ability to feel safe in the world. I recovered from years of addiction, followed by years of abuse by discovering a sure path out of the dark pain of devastation. Along the way, I came to some unique conclusions about how to access the root of the problem, based on concrete results. The body doesn't lie.

And during the ensuing years of joy, which happened after I became willing to relinquish the pain. I came to a new place within myself. I wish to share this process with you, because I feel very strongly that with this work, no one need suffer. I also feel very strongly that no one should ever have to suffer. Ever. Pain is an adaptation, a response. It is not supposed to be where you live. It is feedback, that tells you something's gotta give, and if you have the courage that is your birthright, it I'm here to help you determine that it's not going to continue to be you.

I am a somatic movement practitioner specializing in trauma resolution. I have extensive experience with all kinds of therapies and mediation practices. I have been teaching professionally since 2002. I have been trained in recovery protocols for veterans with PTSD by the iRest Institute. In 2015 I obtained my Masters Degree In Writing and Certification in Teaching Writing two years later. All this I bring to give you the very best, exclusive solution to living in the complete uncertainty of long-term grief and trauma. It's time to do things differently. It's time to tell a new narrative, one that empowers you to live in peace. In this season of my life, I have come up with a clear systematic pathway that you can easily learn for yourself, to free yourself from the ravages of loss and replace it with internally sourced inspiration, creativity & comfort. All this is wrapped up inside the promise I make to you to show you the way back to your own innate resilience and joy.

Feldenkrais? Awareness Through Movement?
Reprogram Your Brain for Ease
Rather than a theory of how humankind can improve, the Feldenkrais Method is a simple, practical process for intrinsic learning and motivation. It is based directly on scientific method: the process of creating an experiment with constraints and then observing the results. The medium is movement because the feedback is immediate. The result of learning this is exponential. Feldenkrais is named after the founder of the Method, Moshe Feldenkrais, who brought us this amazing way to apply the principles of physics to use gravity to stabilize balance and access less wear and tear on the joints. It cultivates extreme sensitivity to distinctions enriching enjoyment of life AND spontaneity. Awareness Through Movement is the class format which allows for inexpensive access to the masses. Functional Integration is the private session format which is a one-on-one with a highly trained practitioner who embodies the work and can jump-start your progress.
