Why Don’t We Connect?
As a Trager practitioner and teacher for 34 years, I’ve learned that a practitioner’s work is only as good as their connection to the client. This is true not only for Trager practitioners, but for all professionals within the body working world. In fact, this is just as true for lawyers and mothers, for waiters and teachers. It’s not a stretch to say that the ability to connect is at the core of all professional and personal “success”.
But deep connection doesn’t always happen.
Old baggage in the form of judgements, shame, defensiveness, anger, frustration, and pain get in the way and mask our connection. We get caught in the ego’s melodrama, lost either in past memories or future expectations.
To transcend this I’ve created profoundly simple tools. You might think that simple can’t be effective, but the opposite is true. I’ve spend many years distilling my teaching down to a few core concepts that can be used any time, any where.
Simplicity combined with applicability is another key.
These Teachings Saved my Sanity.
When my life fell apart, when my marriage ended, when my family structure was crumbling all around me, these tools were my anchor in the storm. They connected me to the energetic Source of all things. They brought me to the hub of my spinning wheel. They enabled me to cope. I don’t know what I would have done without them. They increased my empowerment and ability to choose differently. Using them was the only way I could connect to my clients, as well as my children and friends. If these techniques had been difficult or complex they would have overwhelmed my already crowded psyche. Quite literally these simple tools gave me the gift of the present moment.
I want to give this gift to you. I want to give you the gift of using Trager as an approach to living.
This gift is the culmination of a long personal path: fifty years of meditation and self-awareness exploration, thirty-four years as a Trager practitioner, twenty-six years as a tutor and workshop leader, and the published author of Trager for Self-Healing.
