There is deep wisdom within our very flesh, if we can only come to our senses and feel it.

Embody bliss.

"Light, navigation, and wisdom."

Karen entered my life as a goddess of light, navigation, and wisdom. My life simply needed her touch for all the good things to happen.

Somatics is a way of getting in touch with ourselves through mindful experience of the body—an intentional and attentional way of caring for our experience that increases our ability to live more wholly. Through experiential inquiry, gentle movement sequences, and subtle breath-work, we learn to attend to the body's lived experience, increasing our awareness of the healthy and unhealthy ways we literally shape our experience.

The body is the gateway between the inner and outer world. For better and for worse, everything we experience consciously and unconsciously passes through this gateway. Sometimes, our ways of adapting to experience in the moment can become maladaptive patterns of experiencing. Our unconscious patterns of experiencing ourselves, each other, and the world result in numbing, tension, and pain, often the residual effects of difficult life conditions, stress, or trauma held in our bodies. 

By deliberately reconnecting with more of our felt experience, we become more conscious of the ways in which we habitually organize our movement. As we become more aware of the unconscious, habitual patterns that contribute to unease, we can begin to consciously unwind, release, and restore healthier patterns of being. With practice, we develop the capacity to feel more at ease in our own skins at will by harnessing the mind/body connection to create new patterns of connection, integration, and vitality.

Available by appointment. 

I offer personalized somatic sessions designed to increase your capacity to feel comfortable in your own skin. Sessions usually integrate some combination of experiential inquiry, gentle movement, breath-work, and mindfulness exercises, but how we work together depends on your intention, disposition, and situation. Please get in touch to discuss the possibilities, or schedule your sessions now online. 

Please keep in mind that I only work with a limited number of seriously awesome, committed clients at any given time. This keeps me sane, healthy, and best of all, fully attentive to you. If you want to work together, get your sessions on my calendar sooner rather than later.

"No pain after just one impromptu somatics session with Karen."

I could do pigeon with no pain after just one impromptu somatics session with Karen Sella! Before this session, I was unfamiliar with somatics, but once I experienced the modality, I knew that I needed to pursue it further. I highly encourage anyone with long-standing stuck-ness or pain to try it.
