Do you have a recurring symptom, is your body trying to get your attention?
The fluid nature of your body is a potent healer
In private sessions we address what is physically / psychologically presenting itself as a (recurring) symptom, in dreams, in unrest.
We use breath, sound, movement, touch, awareness and stillness to engage with soma, the body perceived from within, where the perceptual boundaries between body and soul may be blurred.
We listen deeply, move and feel sensation and work on tracking ability and felt sense. After an accident we may introduce a specific protocol or home practice.
Dreams may become doorways to deepening body consciousness.
In dialogue, with a body at ease, wants and needs come into focus.
Stress transforms into awareness, new energies are released to nourish a more peaceful existence.
By taking time from focusing outwardly to discovering inherent inner space, an ally for the creative process can be gained.

"Susanna has completely changed my life. Working with Susanna has been one of the best things I've ever done. At first, I was very skeptical of all the emphasis on the breathing, the movement, and the focus on the body. But now, I can see a major positive shift happened in my life because of my sessions with Susanna. She has helped me unearth deep beliefs and memories that I didn't even know I had that were influencing my decisions daily. She has helped me heal old psychological and emotional wounds that I could have never faced without her. Most importantly, Susanna has helped me to truly know, understand, and love who I am."

“Your highly sensitive, differentiated way of entering a dialogue with my movement and body language, and your ability to give input is very valuable to me”.
Eva Hurley, psychotherapist
“After the car accident, I was stiff as a board. Your intuitive abilities in immediately finding the troubled areas of tension impressed me deeply, my whole body relaxed. In subsequent sessions, old emotional material was released, thank you so much”.

“ I feel so met by you”!

Embodiment and the Field
What does deepening body engagement have to do with receiving information from the non-local intelligence field?
The body is the instrument with which we fulfill our desires on this earthly plane. With technology spreading vast and fast, the body is bombarded by unprecedented influences (like electromagnetic radiation). Often we do not pay attention to our body’s needs until discomfort and pain manifest. Yet if we start listening to this organism and its inherent wisdom, we discover a field of well being. I
Sensing below the surface
Movement happens 24/7 below our skin; most of it goes unnoticed. When we engage consciously with our movement experience, we become participants in our own unfoldment; we develop language to describe what we sense. We come to trust our way of sensing and recognize felt sense.The pleasure of inhabiting the body has an effect on our surroundings. We become spacious. A spacious presence in stressful environments can have a calming influence. We become discerning with incoming information. We sense what is good for us, and what is better left out.
With sound or singing, our waters - approx. 70% of our body - connect to our emotional body. Feelings can wash through us without drowning in emotion... aaah! There is room for the witness and compassion becomes more possible.
If mind/ body is clear of emotional turmoil, it is easier to recognize synchronistic events or ‘for the universe to show us the way’. A sensing body receives information that overrides the intellect. When we can be present enough to respond to its suggestions, the resulting action is always liberating and joyful.
A woman student was nursing her dying cat, when she received a business email from her estranged brother. “...I will be in Greece...” it said. Without thinking, she hit the reply button. “Can I come along?” 10 days later they met up on the island of Corfu. All disturbance in their relationship had vanished.
Embodied living is an adventure - you may want to start by directing your attention from the electronic screen to your breath and begin exploring.
I am available for coaching on film sets with actors and directors, as well as for individual sessions at the Santa Monica studio or via Skype. Please email me for more information or to schedule a session.
