Have you been using meditation or spirituality to bypass your unmet human needs? On the foundation of your current meditative practice we will begin to explore the places where in your system that needs healing, connection and acceptance. Rather than using practice to turn away for your past hurts, well use practice as a resource to full embrace your humanness and offer the missing experiences your younger parts have been waiting for.
I will be your guide in safety returning to your body and being present with the fullness of who and what you are. You'll receive a personalized approach to an embodied meditation practice that works for your nervous system. Along the way, we will explore and integrate the traumas and wounds that make it difficult to stay present. An integrative healing and awakening approach.
Being conditioned and socialized as a man in our culture comes with much wounding and confusion. Typically the models we are given for how to integrate this wounding fall into the binary or divine masculine and feminine. What does it look like to heal and show up as you in the world beyond that binary? As the healthy integration of all energies. If you're on the journey of what it is to be in a man's body outside of the binary, let me be your guide along the way.
Danny has a multifaceted capability to be deeply present within himself, while holding space for my sacred journey. There is also a visceral sensation of Danny’s perceptive listening to hear just underneath the surface of words; to hear my many words … unleashed in a seemingly endless stream of consciousness. Within this, he hears what is often unspoken and invites an immediate connection to my body’s own knowledge.
There are many confusing paths as we encounter the offerings of a wide variety of practitioners, modalities and teachings. This can be overwhelming when combined with past traumatic messages within our body. Danny is unique in how he can simplify this path and continuously shares his intelligent perspective, tender empathy, along with his deep knowledge of the body-mind and trauma cycles. He guides my wonderings to a personal, energetic felt-sense. It is through this process that my essence is safely explored, discovered, investigated and directly experienced.
Throughout our work, Danny has exhibited outstanding personal characteristics.
They are well versed in a wide array of meditation traditions and practices, and have helped me translate and integrate what I learned from various teachers and systems.
They have treated me as a peer, and consistently incorporated my input in deciding what and how we practice.
They admit when they don’t know something, and have been willing to question their assumptions.
They have been a model of authenticity and transparency, and have freely shared their thoughts and feelings around sensitive subjects.
It has been a joy to work with Danny, and I highly recommend them as a meditation coach.
