Navigate your cravings and addictions to loosen up their intensity and bring healing in this somatic experiential. In this time of Covid19, there are many things we cannot have or do. We may be stripped to see ourselves bare in some ways.

With cravings and addictions, we have a keyhole into knowing what it is that lives under the surface that drives these actions and ways of coping. It is also the opening for more empowerment and self-love.

Food addictions and cravings, substances, activities, connections, and relationships — depending on how and from which place of ourselves we reach for these may be a dependency or a way to protect ourselves from discomfort.

Note: There’s nothing wrong with how you have adapted as your addictions may have their own wisdom, though you may want to find greater freedom and depth of self-knowing.

What does it mean to be open, transparent, and honest? When it means discovering you are polyamorous, there may be challenges and surprises that come. Dr. Terri Fernandez talks about the journey in discovering she is polyamorous at heart while being compassionate in a monogamous marriage. Her experience includes a depth of fear and hurt, as well as joys. She shares her own body reactions, partner reactions and some major losses on the journey. Also, questions about how you set up life as polyamorous especially being in a monogamous marriage and what is commitment? How can you be fully honest?

Terri and I mutually discuss past generations and pressures, what family constellations has to do with a Poly view, what life would be like if Poly were always an option, repression is a superpower, how we each discovered our own polyamorous journeys.

Clinically trained with a specialization in forensic psychology, Dr. Fernandez now works exclusively with our veterans in the Department of Veterans Affairs. Providing primarily trauma-informed, evidence-based therapies to treat PTSD, she uses her integrative theoretical orientation and certified training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help our veterans process traumatic experiences with present-moment awareness, as well as address other psychological difficulties from a non-judgmental and compassionate approach. Terri Fernandez, Psy.D. is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.

Terri is a native Texan, reformed gamer, and wannabe lichenologist. She returned to her hometown of Texas (currently based in Austin) after living and training in Chicago, Kansas City MO, and Gainesville FL.

In this guided experiential, develop your relationship to your inner knowing and intuition — strengthen the muscles of your heart, inner attunement, and body wisdom. I lead you through a Blind Constellation of tuning into three pieces of your life so that you can clarify and fortify your relationship with your many inner messaging systems.

It’s so essential to follow what is true to you — and it feels increasingly important in times of uncertainty and unknown. It is vital to loving yourself to do what’s for you to do, and not what you feel you “should” or was part of a past plan. Alignment in the present requires trust in your body’s response system as well as understand where your capacity is in terms of what parts of this response system is disconnected or has static (trauma, unconscious or unintegrated aspects of yourself). Also, a brief exploration about fears and resistances to inner trust.

Touch in with a spontaneous meditation to soften at the edges, release the energies of the collective that you’re carrying, bring forgiveness and self-loving to places where you betray, are hard with, or judge yourself. I briefly discuss seeing self-betrayal as protection and being truly in agreement, in love, with yourself.
