A Mind, Body and Soul Approach to Grief, Loss, Trauma, Addiction, Death, Joy, and Healing through Counselling, Somatic Inquiry, Yoga, Dance, Movement Meditation, Mindfulness, Breath, EOL Support, Personal Archival Services, and Unconditional Love.
"The body supports the process of deeper awareness on all levels of being. So often we run from our uncomfortable sensations and never allow them to teach us. If we confront them, they often dissipate and take us somewhere new, often into deeper levels of awareness".
Clea Jonquil Hargreaves, MAS, E-RYT-500+, Archivist, Grief Counsellor, Somatic Practitioner, Trauma Informed.
As an Archivist, Grief Counsellor, Yoga and Dance Instructor, Somatic Practitioner, Recovering Addict, Complex Trauma Survivor and Compassionate Human it is my desire to provide a safe space for witnessing and healing as we journey together through this beautiful and at times heartbreaking gift of Life.
I believe passionately that everyone deserves to be supported in their grief, trauma and loss and offer unconditional acceptance alongside tools and practices designed to help discover, honour and integrate the numerous individual and collective losses, traumas, and disconnections we all experience within our Mind, Body and Soul. In combining intellectual, sensory, somatic, and energetic modalities we will be able to illuminate and work with many parts relating to the impermanence of life, loss, and death while exploring how archival work seeks to shape and re-shape the narratives of the past and present allowing for a more expansive and inclusive historical record.
"It is said that in every loss there is an opportunity to uncover and heal the losses of a lifetime. The deeper the loss, the deeper the opportunity" (Stephen Levine).
In working to Embody our Grief we are learning through Mind, Body and Soul how to once again dance with life in a way that allows for presence at the edges of our discomfort and gently guides us towards unconditional love, compassion and safety. It is an immense honour to hold space for you as you journey home to yourself, thank you.

"We must learn the art and craft of grief, discover the profound ways it ripens and deepens us. While grief is an intense emotion, it is also a skill we develop through a prolonged walk with loss. Facing grief is hard work...it takes outrageous courage to face outrageous loss. This is precisely what we are being called to do. Learning to welcome, hold, and metabolize these sorrows is the work of a lifetime".
