Lana Marie is grounded in our common humanness. She knows what it is to have suffered, to have been through debilitating illness and face the dark shadows. Through her own deep inner work and spiritual search, doors have opened to a deeper self and a whole new world of possibility for how to live in relationship with self, others, spirit, and the earth. Lana Marie offers a unique therapy with a focus on mindfull experiencial study and transformation of limiting beliefs and systems. With dedication to your inner work there is a release of life force energy and creative insight and an opening to "your true nature."
Before opening her private counselling practive almost 20 years ago, Lana Marie worked as a USTAT counsellor with couples and individuals, and vounteered in programs for people suffering with severe mental illness. As well as working in private practice, she has designed and facilitated various workshops and group processes including teaching Mindfulness at the University of Victoria. She was also an online instructor in the Transpersonal Psychology program at Naropa University.
Lana Marie blends somatic/body-centered methods based on neuropsychological research with transpersonal and creative processess to explore and release old patterns and material. Material that was previously stuck, hidden or suppressed is released into consciousness where it can be transformed using a combination of the innate wisdom of the body and meaning making. No two sessions are ever the same. Lana Marie does not diagnose or prescribe. Nothing is imposed during a session. The process is gentle, spacious and non-judgemental with a foundation in mindful observation.
Lana Marie will sit with you in a way that will safely and gently open your inner world, touch Your True Nature, activate your soul, and release your authentic self. When we do our inner healing and touch into the truth of being, the jewel of our deepest truest selves is illuminated. As Shamans from ancient traditions all over the world know, in order to heal we must reconnect with and bring soul back into our lives.
Presenting issues may include stress, energy depletion, depression, anxiety, phobias, unexplained physical issues or pain, unbearable grief, relationship problems, or simply a desire to live a more creative and satisfying life.
Lana Marie will gracefully and skillfully help you face life's challenges and live with more love and awareness in all areas of your life. She is also available to custom design and facilitate workshops for groups and organizations.
