I have been working with people on an intimate level for about 15 years, mostly in the mainstream medical system. I have cared for people who are very vulnerable, and have a high level of dependence on my sound, ethical, treatment and advocacy. I have supported people with acquired, and congenital disabilities, cognitive and physical challenges, disease and dying. I have facilitated therapeutic recreation programming, for adults with developmental disabilities.
I have also faced many personal challenges around sexuality, gender, and body image, which today I am grateful for; because they have offered me a chance to awaken to a much vaster world, than what I was previously led to believe existed.
I’m so excited to share with those who are curious, the brave, bold, and beautiful reality of pleasurable embodiment; free of guilt and shame, and overflowing with self love, health, and true well-being. It’s a reminder that we are never irreparably broken, that we are powerful beyond measure, and that we are so deserving of, and able to achieve,
​a state of bliss. I welcome you on this journey.   http://www.heavenlyembodiment.com/  Victoria, BC

felting-270x270.jpgMehdi Darvish Yahya offers Perfect Touch. He combines his expertise in verbal and non-verbal psychotherapies and his training as a bodyworker to heal your trauma with your pleasure; it is your guidance that makes the touch perfect. When the soul is frightened and the body is frozen in a chronic state of agitation or numbness, the body needs gentle invitations to house the soul again. While the ‘talking cure’, as practiced in conventional counselling, has helped to some extent, it has neglected the wholeness of the body, mind, and soul. Now there is a sustainable way.
