Sovereignity  • Autonomy  • Intuition • Community
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? Become a member of the Creating Space Community on a trial basis.
What You Do With It Matters
How you live makes a difference.
How you think matters. Your voice matters.
What you put out into the world affects us all but 
you more than anyone...

What is Resilience all About? 

It's about self-reliance. It's about re-creating your life without feeling lost.

It's about cultivating a healthy INTER-dependence with others also on a path of their own determination. It's about finding and embodying your values and your deepest desires when things fall apart.

An Embodied Sense of Safety
Open Your Body

The innate intelligence of the body responds faster than thought. It resides in sensory, felt input from your nervous system that has access to a form of knowing unavailable to the conscious mind. When you live in continuous stress, it arouses your fight/flight system. Hormones flood your body, increasing heart rate and making access to relaxation dormant. Mindful movement, however, is a way to calm the nervous system. Movement with Awareness expands your inner and your outer senses. It allows you to surrender thought, while moving into spaciousness. This activates your 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.  This is a part of the Trauma Release MethodTM that restores your body. #MOVETWITHTHEFLOW
The Reframe:
Question Reality
Open Your Heart

Transmute charged emotions, so that they no longer block you. Clear them with a simple process of guided iRest meditation. Reconnect with 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 your off-the-chart emotions 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. Discover direct access to spontaneous synchronicity, insight and inner guidance. This is a part of the Trauma Release MethodTM that restores your heart. #CLEARTHEFLOW
Creative Writers
Create Better Narratives
Open Your Mind

To make sense of life, you tell stories. Every day. Resilient people are different from most people, though, because they let the story morph and change. The creativity of writing reveals that you create a new narrative easily, one that works for you, instead of against you. Express those overwhelming emotions that threaten to engulf you. 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. A life lived, people loved and lost, wisdom accrued equals a new level of creative acumen. A keen mind and sharp wit can pierce the soul as easily as a needle passes through cloth. The practice of writing hones your ability to grasp the meaning that life has kept you too busy to process. One of the most fulfilling experiences in life is to give your understanding wings through creative expression. This is a part of the Trauma Release MethodTM that restores your creativity. #WRITEINFLOW
Embrace Connection
Life is Sacred
Open to Sacred Space

Let the universe be your ultimate teacher. When we meet in sacred space, allowing the center to hold, there is a magical emergent consciousness that moves through each of us if we let it. "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 like a weekly support group for women that is structured to foster your emergent wisdom. 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. In this, we enrich our lives with deeper connections to others AND to all that is. The pandemic has also been one of isolation and has shown us how vital human connection is to wellbeing, health and vitality.  This is a part of the Trauma Release MethodTM that restores your sense of being in world that is connected and that supports you. #CONNECTWITHTHEFLOW

Gabrielle Pullen, MFA, GCFP, LMT
Course Curator
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.
