Feeling overwhelmed is exhausting.

Even with a full night’s sleep, the hours of stress, worry and pain in between can leave you feeling drained and disconnected.

In the Healing Temple, we see you, and you’re not alone.
Connected in ritual, Carissa Rodgers guides you to embrace the energy of the circle and heal as one. Together we can release the past and awaken our heart.

 

What is the Temple? 


The Healing Temple program is a monthly therapeutic circle, where women can talk, share, laugh and connect.  

During six group sessions, you will be guided through activities that expand your self-awareness, making room for self-acceptance, love and deep healing.

As a part of the circle, you will be trusted by others to come without judgement, to share wisdom and to be open to new beginnings and new friendships. The temple is a safe space for all women, regardless of situations, and offers a place to heal among others who understand and acknowledge your journey. We ask that you come as you are, and with a commitment to your own healing path.

How will the healing temple help you? 

Our bodies are wired for connection.
Gathering in sacred circle to discuss our challenges is a centuries-old practice that has power that we often undervalue. Through relationship, we feel connected, grounded, safe, and capable of facing problems that we cannot alone. These feelings lead to an increased connection to ourselves and make room to reflect on what we truly want out of life.

The practices developed in class are intended for everyday use  

Grounded in The Somatic Awakening Method, these practices focus on key areas known to improve wellbeing and encourage deep personal healing and connection. Focus areas include:

 

  • The nervous system and its impact on our mind and body.

     

  • The physical body and the power of touch.

     

  • The mind and improving psychological wellbeing.
 

Who is welcome?  

The temple is open to all women at any stage of life, who are seeking help to heal. We welcome those ‘who are longing for deeper self-connection’ or ‘who are seeking a deeper connection and understanding of oneself’ and those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief or trauma to come together to share their hearts and awaken in each other new ways of healing.

What women are saying

When I first walked into her room living was too hard; too painful and too dark…Therapy with Carissa has allowed me to walk in the full magnificence of who I am.

“Through her gentle, kind and genuine caring manner, my trust in her was gained; trust that had been previously violated. I was able to gradually release fears, misconceptions, overwhelming emotional traumas and deep-seated grief from within me.”

“I’ve never met someone so caring, empathetic and such a great listener. Carissa doesn’t judge, tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, but is there to listen and offer kind words of encouragement.”
