EMBODIED EDUCATION FOR HEALING
& SOCIAL CHANGE
VANISSAR TARAKALI, PH.D.
You might call me a body-whisperer
. Through coaching
, I specialize in helping people understand and collaborate with their bodies for personal healing and social transformation.
I believe that bodies are wise and trustworthy. The body is always trying to take care of us and our loved ones. But sometimes the body’s worldview becomes stuck in the past, when we had fewer options than we do now. To get our bodies up to date, we need to learn the language of the body.
I am here to help individuals
learn to communicate directly with their bodies, so that mind and body can collaborate to achieve personal and organizational goals.
My training and life experience has prepared me to support clients from diverse backgrounds to: reduce stress, build healthier relationships, heal from trauma and oppression, balance their personal and work lives, strengthen their social change work, increase organizational wellness and resilience, nurture creative self-expression, and navigate life transitions and spiritual awakenings.
Do you become “triggered”
or upset out of proportion to what is actually happening?
Do you have important goals
or yearnings that you cannot seem to turn into reality?
You already know that self-insight and analysis alone cannot change these patterns.
Are you ready to befriend your body?
Are reduced time, energy and financial resources
limiting your ability to inspire your staff, and their ability to empower the community?
Do your staff and volunteers become overwhelmed by listening to all of their clients’ painful stories? Could they be at risk for vicarious trauma
Are you ready to sustain your community work from the inside out?
Dr. Tarakali is ready to show you how.
