Sarah gratefully lives on the Traditional and Unceded territory of the Quw’utsun Peoples. She has been working in the field of somatic and trauma therapy for the past twenty years. She believes that an attuned and redsonant compassionate relationship can be part of the transformation and healing of relational and developmental trauma. This is what makes being part of Roots to Thrive and the Communities of Practice so exciting and meaningful to her.
To quote another intentional community – “Connection is Medicine” – and that is what this community is about…authentic and embodied connection.
Sarah brings an interest in embodiment, a practice of paying mindful attention to the wisdom of the body, and an attunement to the energetic and emotional patterns in our bodies as a way to tap into the inner healing intelligence within each of us. Sarah has training, education, and work experience in addictions, meal health, Somatic Transformation for relational trauma, Therapeutic Touch, End of Life care. Sarah is most recently drawn to the teachings of the land, waters and plants in the Quw’utsun (Cowichan) lands, the energy medicine in QiGong and breathwork.
