In this 27 minute guided rest you will be invited to connect with peace, or something that feels okay or neutral. In the first part of the recording you will be guided into connecting with you body. After this there will be the option to explore a sense of peace.
This rest, which spontaneously occurred during a Gathering event, was created for people looking to safety and gently explore and connect with their body in ways they may not have considered. Different options are given throughout the rest recording, allowing the listener to lean into what best resonates for them.
Listeners are invited to “pause” the recording any time they would like more time to be with what has arisen.
Although trauma is becoming more talked about in everyday circles, sometimes it is still thought of as something that only “really unfortunate” people experience. You know, those people. But the truth is we’ve all experienced it in varying degrees.
I love how Gabor Mate approaches trauma: it’s not the event, he explains, it’s how we responded to the event that makes something traumatic. In some ways it may be overly simplistic, but it follows my own experience and what I see play out with my clients time and time again.
“Everything’s going pretty well in my life, but I feel **so much anger! **” “I can’t get past how much anger I feel! I want to feel better, but I am stuck.” “How can I **not** be angry, have you seen what’s going on in the world?” “Being angry is a negative emotion and now is not the time to be negative.”
The feedback from “Social Justice, Heart-Work, and Evolution. Part 1, of 2” had 1 of 3 flavors, generally speaking.
In every moment, new life.

Lisa leads a guided 16 minute rest exploring sensations in the body using awareness of different parts of the body and the breath.
Last night was the first night in awhile where it was cool enough to keep my bedroom door open. Delight!
It also led to me waking up quite a bit during the night. This led to experientially connecting with a question that came up in a recent gathering:
What can I do when waking up in the middle of the night?
Lisa offers a guided rest in which we focus on the breath as a grounding point - the eye of the hurricane that our thoughts, emotions, and experience can sometimes be.
