Questions & Answers – Presencing Program

Who can benefit from the program?

The program supports people who are primarily in three different emotional phases.

Phase I: Connect with my feelings  

You have a desire to have a closer, intimate relationship with your feelings and emotions. You are at the nascent phase of  getting in touch with your body, feelings, and sensations.

For instance: It is common to get overwhelmed in situations and difficulty in gathering thoughts. or It is easier to say whats on your mind but feeling numb or nothing in the body.

Phase II: Allowing feelings to flow

At times we feel stuck in certain feelings and difficulty arises in just experiencing flow with the feelings. This phase is certainly for women to find their own rhythm and flow with their feelings. Developing the capacity to tap into the transient and impermanence quality of feelings

For Instance: Feelings angry, spells of crying that keep repeating over and over again, Stuckness, Bored too often and for longer duration of time.

Phase III: Feelings as doorways of transformation

Deepening  into the feelings opens us up to personal transformation, clarity, clearing, cleansing and being in ease with the ebbs and tides of feelings; emotional maturity begins to reflect in our life.

There is an integration with our feelings when we begin to shed light on the old habitual survival adaptations. We can experience new healthier ways to connect with ourselves and also others.

For instances: Bodily sensations are easy to come by, you can self soothe, regulate your emotions most of the time. You want live from a more attuned space inside and outside.

How can these sessions help me with moon swings, Premenstrual syndrome(PMS), emotional and physical struggle during menstruation?

These sessions are not to get rid off or take care of moods, PMS, or your emotional landscape rather to learn to engage with them, treat them as doorways to consciously bring to awareness that which the body is telling us through these signs and symptoms. Eventually your relationship with your blood, feelings and emotions will change, but the intention is not to provide relief to the symptoms, though we will be doing it as part of the process whenever required.

Why I designed this program?

I feel I am closer to being human as I live from my instinctual self. As a sensitive person, over my life journey I learned to lean on my body’s ancient wisdom. My feelings are a potent and life-sourcing elixir for living. My sensitivities mutuate to sensibilities offering me a wide and transient range of feelings experienced through my body.

This quality of feelings tremendously increases my ability to stay in touch with realities of the present, giving me peace and a deep felt sense of joy, love & reverence and grief to living through the cycles of Life-Death-Life …

The culmination of my personal challenges, learnings, explorations nudged me to create these sessions to support individuals on coming home to safety within their bodies and feelings finding intimacy aliveness in themselves and their relationships with self, others, and their work.

I feel the maturation of feelings enables us to live by sourcing oneself from within, creating living environments that are nourishing, ability to navigate conflicts by maintaining connection and mutual respect. It allows and brings ease and flow into life, builds resilience and fosters trust within us. As safety and trust begin to build and fill us inside, it translates into our immediate life too.

This journey brought me to my knees and I learned to Bow! 

I felt called to invite, share and support souls who are traveling on similar paths.
