Healing, Wholing & Growing

Our collective of practitioners at Innerlife offer Soul Work & Energy Medicine, Reiki, Shiatsu & Reflexology, Acupuncture & Hot Stone Massage, Arvigo®︎ Therapy, and Clinical Counselling for your body, mind, and soul.

 

We have a vital opportunity now to shape a new Western psychology that acknowledges humanity as, first and foremost, natural, of nature — not separate from it. It’s time to rewild psychology with ideas and methods rooted in the rhythms, patterns, principles, and other-than-human encounters of greater nature. We seek a Western psychology firmly planted in both wild soil and the soul of the world, at once both an ecopsychology and a depth psychology, one that emboldens us to serve the greater Earth community and to enhance the life of all species, and that does not merely tempt us to use nature for our own healing, self-centered benefit, or egocentric profit. A mature ecotherapy does not attempt to decrease our anxiety, outrage, fear, grief, or despair in response to the ongoing industrial destruction of the biosphere; rather, it helps us to more fully experience these feelings so that we can revitalize ourselves emotionally and, in doing so, enable our greatest contributions to a cultural renaissance.

I think of it as the process of becoming fully human.

This Land, this Place, and her People

This acknowledgement, this website, my business, and my practice at Innerlife are reflections of some of my ongoing efforts to contribute to the humanization on this planet and my personal commitments to increase health of the land, this place, and all the human and and more-than-human ancestors and kin here.

I acknowledge the communities and nations in the traditional territories and homelands of the Kwakwaka‘wakw, Coast Salish, and Nuu-chah-nulth peoples on Vancouver Island...in particular the W̱SÁNEĆ (BOḰEĆEN – Pauquachin, SȾÁ,UTW̱ – Tsawout, W̱JOȽEȽP – Tsartlip, W̱SÍḴEM – Tseycum) peoples where I work.

I acknowledge the traditional territories of the Cowichan (Quamichan/Kw'amutsun, Clemclemaluts/L'uml'umuluts, Comiaken/Qwum'yiqun', Khenipsen/Hinupsum, Kilpahlas/Tl'ulpalus, Koksilah/Hwulqwselu, and Somena/S'amuna' traditonal villages), and Malahat nations and peoples where I live.

I acknowledge the surrounding communities and nations in the traditional territories of the Lkwungen (Lekwungen) speaking peoples of the Esquimalt and Songhees nations, and the Schian’exw (Beecher Bay), Ts’ouke (Sooke), Stz’uminus, Penelakut, Halalt, Lyackson, Dididaht, Pacheedaht, Elwa Klallam and Makah tribes and nations, here on the southern end of Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, San Juan Islands and Olympic Peninsula, where I have begun to find a small sense of home over the past almost 30 years...

...among the human ancestors of this place and this land, their living relations, the-more-than human ancestors and kin and all their life-affirming ways..and the living sentient being, earth herself.
