WHAT IS SOUL WORK?

“A (hu)man is whole only when he takes into account his shadow.”  ― Djuna Barnes

 

Soulwork encompasses everything that we do to help our inner beings evolve towards love and peace. Working with the mind (our beliefs, patterns, habits), our emotions, our trauma, our soul patterns… all of this is how we grow.

INTUITIVE SOUL GUIDANCE

(PSYCHIC READINGS)

Dannah Chaifetz is a professional intuitive and a psychic medium who has had these abilities all of her life. As Dannah looks at people or at photographs of people, she receives very specific information for and about them which offer clear cut and manageable ways to help you to become free of self restraints and subconscious patterns. She also receives information about partners, children and people close to you.

 

Dannah will take your photo with her laptop and delete it when the session is over. As she looks at your photos,  she will tell you what she’s seeing and feeling, and what you may need to know. You may also ask her questions.

 

If you want to discuss any relationships bring along their photos – photos of people on your phone are the easiest way for her to read people and you may also take photos of photographs if needed.  As long as she can clearly see the person’s eyes she can read the person.

MINDFULNESS BASED RECOVERY

When an individual is looking for a way to “move away from”, reduce, or end an addiction or an addictive behavior, there are many things to consider. The MBR approach looks at the whole person and their psychological, biological, social and spiritual landscapes. Many addictions are caused by traumatic events or experiences in a person’s life. These traumas are best addressed through various forms of therapy and bodywork. Part of Mindfulness Based Recovery is guiding the individual to and through healing practices and referring the appropriate therapists and practitioners as necessary. Meditative practices of compassion, loving kindness and forgiveness are also a major component in MBR and in discovering what hurts and what we are masking with our addictions. This is a path of guided self-discovery.

BODY-CENTERED PSYCHOTHERAPY

Our biology houses and reflects our psychology. The body is the structure that remembers the past. It bares the simple truth. Bodies intimately and directly know what the mind edits and forgets. Minds selectively reconstruct, defend against, and distance from pain through elaborate interpretation and “storytelling.” Pain seeks our attention. Our emotional distress “speaks” through our physical distress; we hold physical pain to defend against anticipated emotional pain. Healing is not about fixing or “getting rid of” a body symptom. Rather, healing occurs naturally, as we release old ways of defending and behaving, as we develop a more conscious and intimate relationship to the body, and a more authentic relationship to life.

 

Elise artfully blends somatic and psychotherapeutic modalities, engaging and guiding clients in a dynamic interplay she calls SYNtegration Therapy. SYNtegration utilizes acupressure point and muscular releases, sensation awareness, body-centered dialogue, active imagination, and dreamwork; the effect is greater than the sum of its parts. The process leads to a new understanding and healthier relationship to one’s body and symptoms, resulting in a feeling of physical and psychological spaciousness; decreased discomfort and pain, and fresh directives for managing symptoms, addressing their roots; and a reorientation of one’s creative energy back into life.

FINANCIAL WELL BEING

Joanne’s approach to financial counseling comes from a completely unique perspective different from any advisor you may have worked with in the past. For her, it’s about mentoring with compassion… taking a relaxed and gentle approach to understanding your financial picture.

 

You deserve a mentor to help you shift the paradigm around money in your life. You can start slowly with subtle changes in your thinking followed by time proven methods of saving and investing.

 

Joanne’s primary goal is to educate and empower clients. She genuinely believes anyone is capable of making intelligent financial choices when given proper tools and knowledge. Her ability to put clients at ease is in part a result of no longer selling financial products.  She works one on one and with couples endeavoring to remove shame, fear and feelings of ignorance about financial matters. Joanne refers to herself as the “Moolah Doula”, helping people “give birth” to a healthier relationship with money. In the past few years alone, her clients have saved and built substantial sums of money by learning how to invest and save wisely.

REFUGE RECOVERY

Refuge Recovery is a non-theistic, Buddhist-inspired approach to recovery from addictions of all kinds.

Open to people of all backgrounds and respectful of all recovery paths, these meetings are appropriate for anyone in, or interested in, recovery from any forms of addictive behavior.  No prior meditation experience necessary.
