WITH YOUR INNER GUIDE

Align

As a Somatic Practitioner, I support highly sensitive women and non-binary individuals to reconnect with their internal guidance system so they can experience more peace, joy and fulfillment in life and work.

 

I guide you through practices that connect you with your body's intelligence, rewire your nervous system, and align your life with the most authentic version of yourself, in a way that is sustainable long after our work together has ended. 

I support you to:

  • Align the superpowers of your mind with the wisdom of your body.

  • Tap into your innate intelligence, and expand its influence on your life.

  • Release cultural, social and generational patterning standing in the way of you becoming more fully expressed in your life.

  • Trust yourself and the process of life.

  • Digest unprocessed emotions.

  • Regulate and rewire your nervous system for peace and freedom in your body and your life.

  • Tap into the intelligence of your heart and gut.

  • Shorten the timeline so it doesn’t take years to achieve this.

My approach is Somatic, Holistic & Trauma-Informed.

What does "Somatic" mean?

A Somatic approach to coaching & healing means that I support you to find the answers you seek by connecting with the intelligences that live within your body.  In this way, you learn to access the immense, innate wisdom that exists within your whole human system.

How is my approach Holistic?

I acknowledge and support you to connect the with wisdom of your Higher Self - or whichever name resonates for you.  Other names for this aspect of Self include Soul, Essence, True Nature, Authentic Self, and many others. The idea here is that I support you to connect with the aspect of yourself that has intelligence which goes beyond that which is contained within the mind.

As a Trauma-Informed Practitioner:

  • I believe you are whole, worthy and resilient already.

  • I listen to you and will always believe your lived experience.

  • My focus is on helping you access the intelligence in your physical, emotional, mental and soul bodies so you can heal and align your life with your highest wellbeing.

  • I help you to regulate and rewire your nervous system for optimal wellbeing and fulfillment.
  • I understand how conditioning and trauma affects the body, behaviors and relationships.

  • Everything I invite into a session is optional, and I continually remind you that you get to choose.

BODY AS TEACHER

for now.

 We have collectively forgotten the wisdom of the body.

A mind-body split took place in our culture hundreds of years ago. As a result, the mind intelligence has been given preference for generations, and most people today are unfamiliar with the many other innate intelligences that live in the rest of the body.

The imbalance.

 

The mind is an incredible organism - and also part of the body. We greatly benefit from tapping into its potential. When the majority of our energy goes into cultivating the powers of the mind only, we can become imbalanced.

For many women, this imbalance feels like:​

  • Exhaustion and burnout.

  • Difficulty trusting yourself.

  • Head spinning.

  • Shame about your body.

  • Feeling emotionally stuck or numb.

  • Difficulty having a voice.

  • Anxiety.

  • Unfulfilling or toxic work and relationships.

Eyes Closed

Let me be clear,

THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

If you are reading this and feeling like this describes you, please know that this is not your fault.  There is nothing you could have done to have experienced anything different as a human being. 

 

At some level, this describes all of us. Because these ways of being are the result of generations of patterning for survival, particularly for women. 

 

These are all very intelligent ways that our systems supported us to be here, alive, today. And yet - you may have a knowing that they no longer support you to get where you want to go in your life at this point.

The great news is that tapping into the wisdom of your heart, gut, Higher Self and body is simple! In fact, we have an innate capacity to do so. Since most of us have never been taught how to connect with the many intelligences within us, it just takes a little guidance, practice and accompaniment to get there.

 

With so much change happening on Earth today, it's no surprise that many women are feeling a deep call to re•member their innate intelligences right now -

The great news.

To honor our bodies,
trust our cells,
and lead lives directed by
our inner, radiant realities.

I, too,

AM ONE OF THESE WOMEN.

Welcome!

I'm Lua Zawacki, Somatic Coach, Therapist & Facilitator.

And I, too, am a neurodivergent/highly sensitive woman on a path to more fully embodying my Truer Nature. For most of my life, I was pretty disconnected from my body and suffered as a result - in my health, my relationships and my work.  Over the past 20 years, I have healed and welcomed home parts of myself that I intelligently discarded at some point. I have grown beyond what I thought was possible in my lifetime. I have shifted into more peace and freedom in my body, mind, heart and life.  I have radically changed careers so that I am able to serve from a nourished place of joy, instead of from a place of hustle and exhaustion that so many of us find ourselves in. And I am continuing to evolve with each breath and each day that passes, as I am very human, just like you.

Today I support highly sensitive women like me to end cycles of exhaustion, trust their intuitive wisdom and experience more peacefreedom and fulfillment in life and work.
