Welcome, dear Peace with Food graduate! The Transformed Collective is our signature live membership program for graduates of the Peace with Food Transformation Groups and I am so happy to welcome you here and tell you more about it!
You’ve just spent 6 months learning, practicing and re-wiring your nervous system towards deeper capacity, safety and connection. Oftentimes, graduates will tell me how they wish there was a way they could stay in touch, continue to learn and also have a supportive space and home-base to live what they have learned!
That’s how the Collective was born back in 2020 – a space to call your somatic learning home online – where graduates from all over the world continue their journey together!
Through teaching, collective calls and presensing sessions, you will continue to deepen your connection to yourself and those around you and have a beautiful space to process what life brings your way.
You will sit with me and fellow students who have also been through the Transformation group experience and belong to a group of mindful, bodyful and dedicated humans whose longing for peace with food has brought them to a place of peace with self they never imagined possible.
Each graduate of a Transformation Group is gifted a month free trial of the Collective. If you’d like to have your trial – just email me and let me know which month you’d like to join us and I am happy to include you in the roster – you will get an invite with a link the day of the collective sessions.
Let me tell you a little bit about the structure of the Collective for 2024.
2024 – Nourish and Flourish – the gifts of post-traumatic growth
Each year, we dedicate the collective to a theme – this year we will be exploring the gifts of post-traumatic growth and how we get to live from the present moment into the future – and create more of who we are here to become! We will explore these themes through 5 live sessions a month, and you are welcome to as many of them as you like. Each month cycles through 5 sessions, as described below.
Session 1 – Teaching session
This is the first session of each month, where I teach a concept and we get to understand and embody the principles of the learning through mindfulness, attunement, presence, writing, discussion and embodied somatic practice, much like you did in the 6 month Transformation group.
Session 2 – Movement session
In our gentle healing movement sessions, we will focus on different movement practices that strengthen and support the nervous system – from cranial nerve integration, to toning for the nerves, self-massage, biomechanics alignment, developmental neural sequencing movement, reflex integration, stretching, flexibility, play and strengthening.
Session 3 and Session 4 – Presensing Session
Presensing is a deliberate transparent communication practice that originates from the work and teachings of Thomas Hubl. In a presensing session, we all create a slower pace and mindful container where our deepest experiences can get translated into words, gestures, expressions and movement to be witnessed by others. The leader invites the whole group into a deep self and transpersonal awareness space, after which we work in small pods of two or three in order to practice speaking, listening, attuning, creating space and reflecting with each other. You will be taught how to do this in the first few sessions, so nothing for you to do on your own – your teacher and colleagues will help along as you get confident in this practice. The deep attuning, mirroring and listening create the bases of embodied secure attachment – an incredible gift from each of the community for the rest of the collective mates on the somatic journey.
There are two presensing sessions each month – so that people from different time zones can attend. The times schedule for 2024 is below.
When the great swing has taken an individual into the world of symbolic mysteries, nothing comes of it, nothing can come of it, unless it has been associated with the earth, unless it has happened when that individual was in the body… And so individuation can only take place if you first return to the body, to your earth, only then does it become true.
— C.G. Jung
Session 5 – The Creative Session
In this session we will combine music, dance, poetry, art, writing, crafting and authentic movement to give you an experience of being in the present, hosting the past and envisioning the future from the inside out, bringing all the channels of perception into a beautiful creative expression! Mindbodyspirit unity gets to come alive through you each time we meet – not just through your individual vessel, but also the vessel of the collective field!
