Example Session:​

  • Opening conversation where you share what is challenging for you, what’s not working and/or what you long for in your life.
  • Focusing our attention on your intentions or what you want to address in this session together and how that relates to your felt sense in your body.
  • Recognizing and feeling into the parts that are calling for attention and offering them your presence and being in inquiry with them.
  • Offering you tools and perspectives on how to be present with your body, your nervous system and addressing your needs and longings.

Current Package Offering:

Nurturing Renewal

One-On-One Session Package to Cultivate Regulation, Resilience and Greater Balance

We always have the opportunity to make new choices in our lives and to discern what our most generative next move is with care and curiosity. That said it can be deeply challenging to discern how to take these next steps using the tools that may no longer be serving us. With focused support and gaining new compassionate perspective, we can create the lives that we truly desire given the challenges that we individually and collectively face. This program offers this support to individuals who are ready to discern those next steps and to take them with greater self love, connection, intimacy, creativity and fulfillment as we nurture the renewal that is wanting to happen through you. 

After filling out the initial intake in which you clarify what areas of your life you’re wanting to focus on, I’ll guide you through each session in which you’ll receive a somatic movement practice with inquiry questions to offer you insight on how you can create the change that you want in your life. There’s also the option to receive a sidereal astrology birth chart reading that maps your soul’s journey in this lifetime. You’ll have a chance to clarify what areas you want to focus on and gain embodiment, energetic and inquiry tools to navigate how to take these next steps forward.

We will use the elements as our main guides as well as aspects and modes of connection including movement, touch, breath, sounding and awareness that we can use to understand and fulfill our needs with ourselves and others in deeply nourishing ways. I also work with herbal allies to offer you extra medicinal support between sessions. Many of the medicines are available for purchase through the online shop.

Not only was each session a luxurious, sacred space in which I explored what was happening for me in my business and in my life more generally; the time in between sessions was rich with discoveries – both challenging and exhilarating.

The framework and questions Hilary has developed allowed me to go deep into an inquiring space without feeling violated or forced in any way, and allowed for answers and more aligned and easeful ways of being to naturally or “magically” appear. I also learned what inquiries needed more time to explore further. Having Hilary to reflect and explore with has been a gift in this process.

The shifts I experienced from working with Hilary were subtle and profound. Having started feeling frustrated with myself for not being able to implement certain new habits in my life, I have emerged having shed self-judgment and with a feeling of ease, flow and joy! This includes a deeper attunement to the sacredness of everyday life; connecting not only with other humans, but especially connecting with and feeling supported by the natural elements. I am more deeply connected, in an embodied way, with my desire to nourish and be nourished by life on Earth. I know that the benefits from my work with Hilary will only grow further over time!
