COUNSELING

Imaging counseling outside the box. At CSC we believe that everyone has a unique spark to discover within themselves, an innate capability for healing, and personal lessons from life experiences to discover along the way.  These components make up our meaningful life purpose which are essential in navigating our way out of suffering. At CSC we help to make sense of, integrate, and balance these components.

Your Unique Life Expression is Within

We offer inspirational, creative, mindful opportunities with a Transpersonal and Integrative orientation in counseling to heal those aspects of ourselves that have often not been well supported in our families, communities or society.  In our role as mentor or guide we seek to understand the roots of suffering in each person’s life and inspire, empower, and transform rather than pathologize.

When to Choose Counseling

Counseling is for when suffering takes the foreground of someone’s life the majority of the time and obstacles appear as barriers that feel insurmountable whereas potential or possibility feels more obscured in the background.  Someone seeking counseling may recognize that many aspects of their life feel out of balance or there are some significant pieces missing to a balanced life. Someone seeking counseling may be in the early stages of their healing path or feel that they have more to unearth and explore about themselves, they are learning and understanding how their history and social conditioning impact their lives now.  Someone seeking counseling may feel like there are aspects of their life to grieve or they may feel like their life is devoid of inspiration but they have a deep subtle whisper that it is there underneath the layers of challenging life experiences and wounds.

Issues Counseling Might be a Good Fit For:

  • Trauma
  • Depression or Bipolar
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic/Terminal Illness
  • Eating Disorders Recovery
  • Substance Abuse Recovery
  • Life Transitions
  • Bereavement/Grief and Loss
  • Integration of Spiritual or Psychedelic Experiences
  • Environmental, Animal, or Social Justice Despair

FACILITATORS: Rachelle Cornelius, Jonathan Stemer, Robyn Heydari, Solomon Buccola, Emily Snodgrass, Olivia Haglund

COACHING

Coaching that catalyzes your inspirational vision into social and environmental change.  At CSC we also believe that once healing begins and life lessons are being composted, each person has the capacity to share their unique spark. Through coaching, each person’s spark is further kindled through learning to share their unique offerings to others, their community, and the world.

We Celebrate Your Unique Life Expression

We offer inspirational, creative, mindful opportunities with a Transpersonal and Integrative orientation to coaching to harness the most potent aspects of ourselves.  In our role as mentor or guide, we seek to support and nourish the budding gift, vision, and expression in each person’s life spark to catalyze an evolution within and an extraordinary offering of service in the world.

When to Choose Coaching

Coaching is useful for when potential, possibility, and a calling to take action takes the foreground of someone’s life the majority of the time whereas suffering is intermittent and seen as an obstacle to learn from and navigate around and is more often in the background of someone’s life and mind.  Someone seeking coaching may recognize that most aspects of their life feel in balance with each other but there is a particular area where someone would like to focus and deepen their fulfillment and offer service to the world in that area. Someone seeking coaching may be in the middle or later stages of their healing path and feel called to harvest what they have learned and share their gifts.  Someone seeking coaching may feel inspired to give back, empowered to be a changemaker, or capable of supporting others through their own challenges.

Interests Coaching Might be a Good Fit For:

  • Transmuting your life experience and gifts into an offering for others
  • Teaching or offering spiritual or meditative experiences
  • Taking action on environmental or social justice issues
  • Creating a conscious business
  • Incorporating mindfulness, somatic, movement, yoga, art, or eco therapies into your practice.
  • Private/business group or private individual meditation/mindfulness coaching.

REIKI

Reiki is an energy practice tool that promotes stress reduction, relaxation, and healing. Reiki can be done hands on or energetically with hands just above the body but is often a combination of both. Reiki practitioners help us to understand and harmonize life force energy and how it flows through us and our lives.

A Reiki treatment can feel very different to each person but people sometimes report feeling a warmth, a flow of energy, or experience nothing other than deep relaxation or peace and anything in between. Reiki can address healing on multiple layers of the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit.

COSTS: $125 per 60 minute session (see below for packages)

MEDITATION & SOUND

Meditation practices can be described and defined in a myriad of ways usually dependent upon which tradition the practices are rooted in, however most practices point to a common unifying experience, that of Awareness. These 1-on-1 sessions include guidance and practices specific to your needs, as well as opportunities to ask questions about and assimilate your practice.

Thich Nhat Hanh often describes mindfulness as “being aware of what is happening inside and around you in the present moment.” Mindfulness and meditation are often used synonymously, here we will use meditation to refer to a presence practice contained to sitting or standing but removed from day to day activities and mindfulness to refer to a presence practice engaged in day to day activities or sometimes referred to applied meditation or meditation in action. 

There are so many different types of mindfulness/meditation practices and somewhat different benefits depending on the practices you use. There are often a number of elements to these practices that are cultivated such as working with intention, attitude, presence, and insight as well as many layers such as working with the mind, body, heart/emotions, and external life. Some of the therapeutic benefits that we observe from mindfulness and mediation instruction and practice include cultivation of more compassoin and empathy, improved distress tolerance and adaptability to adverse circumstances, improved self-awareness and thus confidence, increased contentment in little things, improved focus and concentration, increased sense of interconnectivity, and on a physical level better regulation of the nervous system and reduced blood pressure, just to name a few.

THERAPEUTIC CEREMONY

Personal therapeutic ceremonial and ritual practices can help us understand and process our experiences from a symbolic, mythological, or archetypal perspective and can help bring psychological experiences more clarity in the physical realm. Often, the 5 natural elements (earth, water, fire, air, & space) will be used in our ceremonies and rituals, along with your intention and therapeutic needs.

Ceremonies and rituals can be particularly helpful for times of transition such as a celebration of life or union or a new role, identity, or chapter of life, or for grieving of a loss or for unresolved historical, latent, or suppressed life experiences. In order to fully initiate and complete these healing ceremonies, 3 sessions are required: one to prepare, one for ceremony, and one to assimilate. 

FACILITATORS: Brenton Harris (Soul Retrieval, Elemental Purification), Emily Snodgrass (Emotional Alchemy)

COST: $350 for three 60-minute sessions

 

THERAPEUTIC YOGA

The word “yoga” comes from the Sanskrit word meaning “to yoke” or to unify; the deeper purpose of these practices is whole-self alignment through embodied movement. Therapeutic yoga incorporates the asanas (postures typically associated with yoga in the West) with pranayama (energy and breathwork) to facilitate healing mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
