In our modern society we have forgotten who we are. We have neglected nature and disregarded our primal nature.
To heal ourselves and the earth we must remember who we are, awaken to new ways of living and transform our relationship with ourselves, the land and Spirit.
Through Primal Rising we use various tools, practices and techniques to transform your life and to bring together the fragmented parts of your being, helping you to restore your true essence.
I want to help you to feel free, connected and ALIVE!
“Humans are a part of creation and shamanism is our way of connecting with the whole.”
Shamanic practices awaken us to the natural world around us, we re-member who and what we are - Nature itself.
Shamanism offers great possibility for healing - for ourselves, our communities and our planet.
Embodiment practices use the body as a tool for healing through self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-acceptance. Through mindful movement we foster balance, expression, and self-compassion.
Embodiment explores the relationship between our physical being and our energy. It involves the interaction of our body, thoughts, emotions, and actions.
At Primal Rising we explore embodied movement through the ancient practices of yoga, tantra, and dance.
Sound is a gateway for healing and awakening.
Through sound we can heal our physical, mental and emotional bodies. It can also help reduce stress, anxiety and depression.
At Primal Rising we make uses of various instruments (including crystal bowls, chimes, drums, didgeridoo) in individual and group sessions, sound baths, workshops, yoga sessions, and at retreats in order to create a deeper and more profound experience for those who participate.
The magic found in circles is difficult to translate into words. We, humans, gathered in circles to share our experiences, to tell stories, to sing, to move, to dance for thousands of years! When we sit in circle we take part in an ancestral practice that awakens something deep within us. It is healing, it is transformational, it is powerful.
Circles are an essential part of my work.
"For me, honouring what is primal means a few things: If my body is telling me that it is deeply healthy and feels good then go with it - it could be shifting a whole lot of stuff for me, If it makes my body move, do it.
If it makes me smile, do it.
If it makes me create something, do it.
If it makes me feel alive, do it.
If it makes me feel wild, do it.
If it wakes me up so I see things in a different way, do it.
My experiences have shown me that the more it makes me experience life in these ways, the more I need to do it.
These are primal urges for me - and I think spontaneity plays a big part in me recognising whether these urges are primal or something my mind has come up with.
Not that I'm going against the power of the mind, but what I'm talking about is the urge - the event, feeling, opportunity, whatever that drives a change in behaviour."
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
I believe in the power of the primal within all of us.
Close your eyes and imagine the beat of a hundred women stomping their feet on the earth, red dresses flapping like flags of rebellion in the wind.
That is the feeling I am constantly trying to re-create and evoke for my clients. When we can access the primal within us, we feel empowered. Connecting to our raw and wild selves awakens an energy within that allows for our authentic expression. When we can access this internal wild woman archetype, we can let go of perfection and external expectations, and become who we really are instead.
I am here to support your becoming.
