In Solstice Practice, we acknowledge that being healthy is more than just not having any physical complaints.
Health is a complex dynamic between the different physical, mental, emotional, environmental and even spiritual fields... Their interactions and adaptations to our life make us to not only sustain but also flourish in our life.
When we are feeling healthy, energy is there and flowing, we have a sense of peace, enthusiasm for life, and we feel connected to our body.
In this state, the dynamics between the different fields (physical, emotional...) are finding their natural way of balancing each other.
In contrary, when we feel unease or in suffering, something is blocking the natural dynamics in finding back its balance. It feels like a long winter, where something has frozen and is blocking the water to flow. With somatic and nondual inquiry, we look together with you towards the source of the blockage and with the light of presence let it melt at its own rhythm until the natural flow finds it way back.
If you are suffering from a chronicle physical or mental pain that haven't find its solution in classical medicine, maybe this holistic approach can be an interesting one for you.
“In general, where we suffer, there is a sense of contraction or freeze. This freeze creates stress. When the stress is ignored, the contracted energy becomes depressed. Yet it’s still there, creating bottlenecks and restraints in the flow of vitality through the body, psyche and mind.”
- GEORGI Y JOHNSON
In Solstice Practice we meet you where you are and take your complaints and personal story in the heart of our approach.
Our first session contains an in depth intake, looking at a variety of components, from physical to emotional, relational... to start having a bigger picture of the overall situation and the mechanisms which are in place.
In a session of an hour, in collaboration and agreement with you, we might talk, touch, move to come into presence with what is blocking your natural balance to be.
As the entire body participates in each emotion, attitude, identity, thought and belief, all our approach and tools are there to not only interact with the mind, but go beyond at the core of the experience in the body.
In Solstice Practice we take our time to explore with you all the dynamics of our being and support you in finding your own sense of balance and come to a sustainable solution.
“Most psychologists treat the mind as disembodied, a phenomenon with little or no connection to the physical body. Conversely, physicians treat the body with no regard to the mind or the emotions. But the body and mind are not separate, and we cannot treat one without the other.”
