Do you know your "patterns" but having a hard time changing them, and talk therapy doesn't seem to be working anymore?
Is your spiritual practice hiding some underlying patterns or pushing them deeper as hard as you try to shift them?
Do you have a hard time charging for your services and making a good living?
Are you sick of affirmations and where they're not getting you?
Do you need better boundaries but feel mystified about where and how to start communicate them?
Activating Your Inner Jaguar has to do with how we love, how we show up for relationships, how we parent, how we deal with money (or don’t deal with it), and how we do sex.
The next course will be starting in Fall 2019. Sign up for the waitlist below.
Activate Your Inner Jaguar is for you if you experience:
• confusion around boundaries in work and life
• a disconnect between what you want in life, and what you're getting
• chronic yeast infections or BV, pain during sex
• shut-down around sex (low desire or pleasure), or a proclivity to end up in experiences you're not sure you wanted
This course is for lovers, parents, birth-workers, practitioners and healers, therapists, and people who want to become more human
Activate Your Predator Energy
The biggest leap in my own sexual healing journey came when I learned to activate predator energy. When I started Somatic Experiencing training 6 years ago, I was terrified of the word "predator," and couldn't have imagined that this would be the missing link to most of the work I do with women, whether helping them heal from birth trauma or sexual trauma.
With the word “predator,” we are not trying to become predators, we are learning to occupy the full range of human, mammalian experience. Could a jaguar survive if it couldn’t bear its teeth to protect her young from predators or the food of her young? Could a jaguar survive if she could not hunt? That same jaguar relaxes, licks her cubs, teaches them to hunt, plays with them.
Understanding YOUR nervous system can be one of the most powerful experiences and footholds you can ever gain.
If you have done years of therapy and/or coaching, but still find life to be exhausting, your relationships difficult, and sex mysterious, discovering your own nervous system patterns may be the missing link. If you are a bodyworker, therapist, or healer, your ability to understand your own nervous system, as well as decode and allow someone to see their own activation patterns will be a huge boon.
In this six-week course, we will:
Demystify the key elements of the nervous system and how to track them in yourself and others
Understand the way your psyche has constructed sex- what's in your sex suitcase?
Clarify your "Yes"es and "No"s
Illuminate what Sex actually IS from a nervous system perspective
Create and maintain boundaries with love
Clear up confusion about why your mind says one thing while your body says another
Understand your patterns with safety and sex
Experience YOUR unique nervous system and how it works

I am currently on sabbatical from hands-on session work, and this course is the best way to work with me directly, and have your questions answered. Activate Your Inner Jaguar represents my Work in the world, and it is what I am most proud of—we will cover much of what we could cover in a session, and more. You will reap the benefits and "a-ha" moments long after the course is over. Please join us for this deep dive into your own being.
Is this course for me if I haven't experienced outright sexual trauma?
Yes. This course was designed to give you a felt experience of power in your body, and for you to learn the ways that your body might be saying "no," while your mouth is saying "yes." This course is about owning your power, in a real way that translates to real-life boundary-setting in your relationships.
You'll learn why boundaries aren't a bad thing—they come from deep, internal experience, and allow you to live your life in a way that feels congruent in your mind, body, spirit, and soul.
What if I can't join the live webinars?
No problem at all. We've had over 120 women take this course, and very few were able to come to each live webinar (and some couldn't attend any live, because of work and other commitments). The videos in this course are meant to be watched sometime during the week—you'll get a replay of each video within 24 hours of the live call. You'll receive information and experiential exercises in each video that you can work with all week.
How much time will I spend on course materials each week?
The classes will be 75-90 minutes long, and we'll give you some experiential exercises and meditations to incorporate into your daily life during the week. All-in-all you'll be spending about two hours on course material per week (plus whatever you fold into your daily interactions).
I often say this course is about learning to be human. In this course I'll teach you to drop beneath the surface, where the body has a magnificent intelligence of what it needs to do to unwind itself. It's waiting for us to listen, to create a deep safety and resonance, to create the conditions where letting go is possible.
