For most women, life moves too quickly to process the stress, pain, and emotional soup that is part of our life transitions. Many of these changes are catalyzed by the beginning and end of our natural reproductive cycles that are an inherent part of being female. Our current medical system leaves little space or time with clinicians to digest difficult moments that come up as we move from one cycle to the next, let alone fully respond to the depth our questions carry. As women, we have our own rhythm and inner complexity, which needs to be honored not rushed. We need to feel safe, be held spaciously and supported in slowing down to become fully present with what we are facing The Presencing Pain and Stress programs are environments for healing in a nurturing and empowering manner. For many of us, self-compassion is difficult to harness without support and reflections we trust. These programs combine the transformational power of group healing work with the benefits of individualized guidance and expertise.

Optional practices are provided to further ground the process between sessions and after the program. Groups will be sized less than 10.
