How Do I Heal?
We run on autopilot, blindly stumbling through life, doing the same things day after day, always getting the same results. Sometimes we stop, look and wonder why. Why am I doing this same self-destructive behaviour?
This can be a moment of clarity – a moment of observation. But then we return to our automatic, subconscious programming.
What if we could nurture this moment of observation?
I know because I've been there
When I became very sick with an inflammatory issue, I looked to alternatives to the typically medically prescribed treatments (many of which caused their own serious problems). My research brought me to the breathing and cold exposure of the Wim Hof Method (WHM). It helped my immediate symptoms, and it moved me towards long term healing. What I didn’t expect was the positive shift in my mental health. I realized as I practiced the WHM that while I didn’t suffer from mental illness, I didn’t have mental wellness.
Our breath is the link between our mind and our body. I have studied many different breath work modalities over the years. From ancient shamanic practices of India to the modern shaman Wim Hof, what was once grounded in mysticism is now understood by science.
Through my Breathing and Meditation coaching, I help clients continue their wellness journey to make lasting personal transformations by developing their own daily practice. We focus on becoming more mindful, focusing on improving personal resilience and perseverance in dealing with the many challenges we face on a daily basis. I do this in both one-on-one and group sessions. This training also extends to corporate coaching, where I help companies introduce this shift to mindfulness that in turn supports a cultural change resulting in greater productivity, improved employee retention, and a reduction in health and wellness absenteeism.
Fascial Stretch Therapy
Pain in our body comes from many different sources. Physical trauma (direct or repetitive stain) can leave lasting pain and discomfort due to scar tissue and altered movement patterns.
Emotional trauma can also manifest itself as physical pain within the body too.
Our fascial net is intimately connected to our emotions and memories. Often we disconnect ourselves from sensations in our bodies when we are not ready to face the pain.
Through Fascial Stretch Therapy we can begin to feel our bodies and connect with the pain that is stuck within. Many of my clients have returned from a plant medicine experience and have discovered this physical manifestation. Through the fascia we are able to release the trauma.
Starting with a simple observation of your breath you will notice a shift away from the distractions of your mind and become aware of the subtle rhythms of your body — Breath, Heart, Life.
The way your brain works and the way you perceive the world is affected by your breath. Combined with guided meditation, specifically suited to you, this journey will take you deep within the darkest corners of your psyche to connect with the part that needs to be healed.
My 12 session program for Individuals and small groups uses the Heroic Journey arch to go within. You will discover your values, your strengths, and weakness. You will discover yourself.
I have been on many journeys in my life. Wilderness trips by boat and foot. Traveling the world to find the others. With the guidance of the plant spirits I have journeyed within. It was through my experience with plant medicine that I found my path to healing. Healing my own body and mind in this life and healing an ancestral trauma. Now that I know the way I am able to access this energy through meditation and breathwork. These are two of the healers I have worked with:
“As a channel for both the sacred Frog medicine (Kambo) and divine Toad medicine (Bufo), my HIGHEST JOY is to empower you and guide you towards experiences of boundless awareness, infinite love and unity consciousness.” Vedanta >>>>
“I have the presence and integrity to hold you through the peaks and valleys of the human experience … with grace, impeccability, curiosity, and love. Will you meet me? Chad Charles >>>>
