• Welcome back! I am once again open for personal appointments, intensives and retreats in our beautiful house in Rottingdean, Brighton.
There are a few changes to the way we need to operate for the safety of ourselves and all our clients. For obvious reasons, please do NOT make a face to face booking if you are suffering from any COVID-19 symptoms (or similar) or have been given a positive COVID-19 test or if you are still shielding as a vulnerable person.
• I am continuing to offer online/remote treatments to clients if you are unable to come in person for any reason. There is a great deal of work that can be done remotely and in fact much of the work that I undertake with clients actually benefits from this way of working. If you would like to begin some work via Skype or Zoom drop me an email.
• I have added a new RESOURCES page with interesting articles, blogs, videos and an extensive reading list.
Finally, my wife, Evelyn Brodie and I have set up a new Instagram page, gandebythesea. Follow us there to connect with our community and as we set sail on our new adventure on the Sussex coast.
The roots of my healing work have grown most fundamentally from my personal journey and my own healing path, I feel that, 'you must have walked the path to truly know the path’. This process of healing myself guided me firmly to pass on healing to others.
'Every shaman is a wounded healer', Gabrielle Roth
Our healing path is the first and most important aspect of our Soul’s journey. It is the essence of our incarnation and our life on Earth. To free ourselves from pain and suffering so that we are able to experience the play of life with joy and happiness. Here and now, awakening to this journey is our soul’s purpose because we are not free to create a bountiful future until we are free from the trauma and stories of the past.
For many this path to healing seems daunting and impossible. Blocked by fear, panic and inertia many people struggle on for years with the effects of trauma and chronic stress, including depression, low self-esteem and feelings of failure. Helped along by a medical system eager to deal only with their symptoms but never seeking the root cause of their illness and disease.
Our ability to successfully stand in the the light is directly related to our ability to venture into the darkness. Shadow work is at the heart of this, the shadow being the place we least want to venture into. In the shadow we find that past stress and trauma have created feelings like shame, guilt, loss, abandonment and anger, which in turn have created addiction, eating disorders, loneliness, depression and physical disease and pain.
Indigenous shamanic healers worlds over have always understood how to deal with trauma, or 'soul loss' through processes like soul retrieval. At the time of trauma a portion of the psyche splits off to protect itself from harm. These parts are often things like innocence, self love or joy and through processes like Soul Retrieval and we can seek to re-integrate these lost parts.
Another effective approach is through revisiting the feelings and emotions that are experienced at the time of trauma. Everything that we are fearful of has a physical sensation associated with it that we can place in our physical body. The event at the root of a trauma rings like a bell in our physical body. If we can access these sensations in a safe and sacred environment, revisiting them at an appropriate distance, we can literally breathe them out of our system with the help of imagery, sound and breath. We can instantaneously release blocks that we have carried our entire life and beyond, from the ancestors or even a past life. Freedom is only a breath away.
Only someone who is in harmonious agreement with the past is also free for the future. One who struggles against the past remains bound to it: Stephan Hausner
This process is of course different for all people depending on the nature of their issues, but what is for sure is that if you are reading this you are already peering into the shadow and the process of spiritual healing has already begun.
The kind of breathwork and bodywork that I lead you in, helps to allow the expression of your authentic voice, which is the most exciting thing, the ultimate high, the kindest gift you can ever give to yourself. There is no implication that we are broken if we choose to do this work. It may be that we just want to be better and more effective versions of who we currently are, but as mentioned and purely subjectively, we may feel blocked and unfulfilled in our lives as a whole or just in a specific part or parts. However it does not have to be this way.
All I ask from you is that you commit absolutely to whichever process we undertake together. That you are completely available and willing to immerse yourself and surrender to what is arising for you at any moment. This is in my opinion the essence and the key to liberation and personal growth. No other person can release you from your story, only you can do this. I can create and hold a powerful and sacred space for you, I can facilitate these shamanic, sound, breathwork and bodywork practices and offer you processes and spiritual guidance to assist your journey, but ultimately you by the grace of the Spirit do the work, have the realisations and feel the change.
I invite you to leave whatever limiting beliefs and repeating patterns are blocking you in my therapy room as you step forward into your purpose, place and potential in this lifetime.
