Dreaming Into Being
Dreaming into Being is an intimate, small-group mentorship program for sensitive & soulful Creatives who are ready to transform themselves and the world through authentic self expression.
Here we believe:
Healing is a creative act
Process is everything
The body holds wisdom
Self transformation is possible
In community we thrive
Prepare to be guided through immersive self-inquiry within a supportive group container.
Together we will explore the depths of the creative-healing process through somatic movement, play, and self-inquiry.
My methods blend somatic awareness and creative care practices to help you get-in-touch, revitalize, and awaken your authentic expression.
Sessions are centered around your somatic experience, Authentic Movement, free-writing/drawing, and dialogue with the group.
We will bring attention to body sensation, inner movement of feeling and emotion, as well as, mental images, thoughts, and beliefs. Self expression will be encouraged through speaking, drawing, movement, and play. The intention is to prepare you to move through your life in new ways with greater self understanding, creativity, and expansion.
The aim of this Mentorship is for you to:
1) Identify where you are at in your creative-healing process
2) Work with the wisdom of each phase of the process
3) Deepen your presence and clarity around your Purpose
4) Learn how somatic awareness can be an invaluable self resourcing tool
5) Forge new relationships with like-minded, soulful individuals who are on the journey with you!
What you will get:
4, 1.5-hr group sessions
1, 1-hr individual reflection session
Sessions will take place within one month
The group will not exceed 4 participants
Each session will begin with an opening dialogue where specific topics will be explored with the group. We will then dive into a guided somatic movement experience that facilitates deeper connection to the session topic. Journalling time will be given after each movement practice. The session will end with group dialogue to share and reflect on our experience.
*sessions will take place online on Zoom
The first cohort will begin mid-September 2023
Specific session dates will be determined by the availability of the group.
Payment is accepted via Venmo, Zelle, or Paypal and must be submitted before the first session.
This mentorship requires your full participation in showing up to each session (unless in case of an emergency). If you have a foreseeable schedule conflict, you will be fully reimbursed and put on the priority waitlist for the next cohort.
What to prepare:
clothing that is comfortable to move in; clothes that allow ease in getting up and down from the floor and moving around your space.
enough space for you to do a little movement (if you are able to stretch your arms wide without hitting anything, that should be enough!)
preferably a quiet area that has minimal distractions
a decent internet connection
journal and writing utensil
water, tea, or beverage of choice
curiosity, kindness, and an open mind and heart
A note from me
Connecting to our bodies is one of the most profound and mundane things we can do. It can lead to great healing...or simply enrich our experience of this one life we get to live.
What's up beautiful people! My name is Lillian and I facilitate in-depth somatic movement experiences to help you wake up your vital energy through creativity, play, and imagination.
The practices and curriculum I offer draw from: Authentic Movement, Somatic Movement Education, dance-making, and a variety of spiritual practices. I have been sharing my love for movement and expressive healing arts for over 10 years.
My classes tend to be a little bit of this a little bit of that, but always invite you to let your body be moved by sensation and imagination. I will never tell you how to move, what your body should look like, or how you should feel when you move. This isn’t the point. Your body and your movement is yours. My facilitation is intended to guide your awareness to different parts of your inner experience and invite your body to respond through self generated movement. (If that sounds too abstract, I’ll put it like this: you will move in whatever way you want to move).
I know it might sound terrifying ~ and on some level it is. Most of us have never unlearned conditioned movement patterns and behaviors. Most of us don’t have a clue as to what “organic movement” would feel like! When we step over the threshold from the known into the unknown, often what accompanies us is fear. This is natural. The process might be uncomfortable at times, but our aim is to slowly peel back the layers of our conditioning and get in touch with a more authentic, natural, and fluid way of being in our bodies.
I’ll assume that by reading this you have a sense for WHY this can be beneficial in our lives, but I’ll name a few that have been pertinent in my life:
-it gives me a way INto deeper self knowledge and understanding
-it gives me a way OUT to more meaningful connections with others and the world around me
-it gives me new ways of seeing, moving, and being in my body and in my life
-it makes life more fun
Honestly, if there's ANYTHING I wish to give you through my work is simply a big ol' smile on your face.
