Mind and Body Therapy
Life is a wonderful thing and yet as it unfolds and creates the environments that we live in, our systems react to the events that we experience along the way. This mind and body that we have, allows us to experience this thing that we call life and many times we are confused as to how we even do it. However, this knowledge lives inside every heart.
Facilitation through mind and body therapy with Shaura draws upon a vast pool of movement, mediation and conscious practices that allow each person to meet themselves exactly where they are at. Through the process of the therapeutic relationship, the dance of healing allows the inner wisdom to guide the person into alignment with their true nature.
How does it work?
Yogic inspired conscious therapy works to bring the client into an embodied place by utilising contemplative practices based in ancient wisdom and contemporary science. Sessions with Shaura offer a combination of:
- Psycho-education around the workings of the physiological systems when we are under stress,
- mind and body practices drawn from different traditions
- combined with intuitive processes of the consciousness in the relationship.
The techniques begin by drawing the awareness into the body to allow the client to re-connect to their innate wisdom. From there, it is easier to perceive how our physiology works to relax or enliven the body according to the perceived needs of the organism. As we gather regulatory skills we have more choice in how we react to the ever-changing environment, which leads to greater internal resilience. This opens the doorway for our connection to consciousness to deepen and life flows more freely through us.

What happens in a therapeutic session?
You will meet with Shaura and connect to what is arising within you that wishes to be worked with in that moment. Each process is unique and can be worked through by dialogue, breathing, meditation or movement. Meditations and movements practices are offered to keep you connected to the energy of the session until the next time that we meet. Sessions are between 60-90 minutes long. One of the primary aims of therapy with Shaura is to encourage the other to trust in the process of life however painful it might have been at some points. When trust arises in the space of the heart, our eyes become adjusted to the beauty of the natural world and our feeling of separateness dissipate. When we truly comprehend that we are connected to this planet, to each other and to the oneness of life then our suffering diminishes exponentially. The process of re-integration aligns us with our true nature and thus is worth every moment of our effort.
Working in relationship with Shaura requires a commitment of at least 10 weekly or fortnightly hourly sessions. After this time we reassess the situation and decide whether we will spend more time together and how. If we feel there is no need we complete with an ending process. We come together for a contractual assessment session, we make a plan of where we would like to take the sessions and set down review times to allow us to keep track of our intentions.
