    • Example of a Somatic session with Nazbah Tom

      TRANSCRIPTION Nazbah Tom: Somatics is a path, a methodology; a change theory in which we can embody transformation; individually and collectively. Often when people present to this work, they're in the middle of some sort of change or transition or they want something to be different. So let's say for example someone is noticing that they might be having issues around connecting with people and that they might have a tendency to really close themselves off to someone or to partners or to family. And there's nothing wrong with that. It's just coming up and it's they're noticing it's not working for them. They're wanting connection. They're wanting nourishing relationships. Someone coming into Somatics we can work with them around that, really have them get an understanding of that shape, how it might have served them historically and really work with them around a vision and a commitment for what it might mean to inhabit another way of relating to people. And inside of that we can do body work to really soften and de-armour enough so that they can see what it is like to perhaps learn trust as a skill or to receive and give. And that might be a new practice that allows them to finally move to this other space of noticing that what is different is that they are able to tolerate connection, trusting someone and that they can trust that they can give and receive in a way that a relationship is nourishing rather than depleting or hollow. Somatics is able to offer this. Bodywork can help with that; literally manipulating the body to produce openings. Standing practices can often support that process of having someone really be in their body and present and open. And also really practising tolerating what it is like to be receiving and giving. And the space we create allows for a safe and contained place where that can happen. We practice that in here until it is embodied enough that they can practice it and apply it in outside of the space. Kayla Carter: It felt really good. I think at the beginning I was afraid of it. But it was this weird thing of that I never at any point…like…I felt really safe. More than safe…I felt protected. That's why it made it easier and I felt more courageous to do that because I felt held and protected. Just having someone else touch my body but not feel that I had to perform it in any way meant I could just be in my body. Literally I am accustomed to just hunching over and being as short as I could possibly be and to actually hear "I am not intimidated by your length and I support you in that" added to my reaction when I first started standing. I told myself "Anything else you're dealing with, just leave it at the door" but it just walked through the door like "I'm here. You tried to check me at the door and it didn't work." Chanelle Gallant: Well, it was a really neat mix of both talk therapy and hands on bodywork. And they both worked to just help me access some things I didn't even know was going on for me. I just brought in…Nazbah asked me what was working and what wasn't working…I brought up something that was sort of like a nagging problem…not the worst thing but something that has been bothering me but not have been able to change for a long time and really within like…two minutes…I was deep in the feelings and realizing what it was about. I was feeling my feelings about it and getting into my body about what was going on and then we did some work on that. That was an amazing treatment. I think that was really effective. It was one session and I felt like I really quickly bi-passed all of my instincts and was able to get to the heart of the matter pretty deep and get some work done and some healing.

                Native Americans are calling for the protection of the Bears Ears in Southeastern Utah as a national conservation area or national monument. The plan would allow for a diversity of uses and designations of the land, while directing resources towards priority management issues, such as cultural and natural resource protection. After identifying important cultural and biological areas, maps were combined to create the boundaries of the proposed 1.9 million acre Bears Ears National Conservation Area which includes wilderness designations and co-managed areas. Many tribal leaders have proposed this conservation region be set aside to protect traditional activities like collecting medicines, herbs, and cultural items, conducting ceremonies, as well as hunting and gathering firewood, and to protect sacred places, including Cedar Mesa, White Canyon, Dark Canyon, Nokai Dome, Abajo Peak, Ruin Park, the San Juan River, and Comb Ridge. The region also contains some of our country's richest archaeological sites and continues to serve as a pilgrimage site for many tribal members. Learn more: http://protectbearsears.org/

                  from GUEL & Associates / Added

                  Raw talent and experience at it's best. Watching the artist produce a high quality permanent piece of work for client who found significant meaning in the work serves as an inspiration. This was a project leaning more towards the artistic side of our work. Experimenting with chromes, black/white, and lighting effects. Nothing was scripted and shot on the run. This was a fun raw project.
