Working with Carl 1:1

Meet Carl RabkeIn my private practice, I have an extraordinary set of tools to offer and am deeply grateful for the teachers, mentors, and traditions that have helped me develop my skill with them.

My practice draws primarily on The Feldenkrais Method, developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais and Structural Integration, developed by Dr. Ida Rolf. Both are incredible methods, and in my experience, are unparalleled in terms of helping you to get out of pain, to become more at-ease in your body, to reduce likelihood of injury, to feel lighter, and to improve the way you do everything you do. Seriously.

All of these great benefits are essentially side-effects of the main point: Coming home to inhabit your bodu, to experiencing a sense of wholeness and integrity, and to recovering your ever-present capacity to learn. Feldenkrais and Structural work are brilliant for helping to recover these skills.

Another primary stream in my work is the The Embodied Life , developed by Russell Delman. The Embodied Life school stands on three legs: Embodied Movement, based on the Feldenkrais Method, Embodied Inquiry and Self-Reflection based on

Focusing and other neurologically based inquiry practices, and Embodied Meditation, based in the Zen practice of Shikantaza or “just sitting.”

For me, the path of embodiment opened simultaneously with the path of meditation and waking up as a human being. They have always been essentially one path. Waking up in the body is waking up in the world.

In my private practice, I strongly encourage clients to work at home between our sessions with lessons I’m happy to provide. These powerfully deepen and integrate the hands-on work we do together.

I look forward to working with you!

Right now the one way to do private work with me is through my Embodied Life Deep Dive Mentoring. While these are one of my favorite things in the world to do, I only offer a limited number of spaces a few times per year, February-May and September-December.

Embodied Life Mentoring: A Deep Dive with Erin Geesaman Rabke (that’s me!)

Embodied Life Teacher & Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner®

Inspirer, Encourager, Listener, Mentor + Asker of Really Good Questions

What is it, you ask?

It’s a focused 4-month partnership to rock your world in the best possible way.

It’s a commitment, it’s a journey, and it’s all about growing your embodied presence, your compassionate heart, your bodily wisdom, and unfolding your wealth of inner resources.

While for local clients, our 1 on 1 work together will include hands-on Feldenkrais work, for those from afar we will do the embodied work via expert verbal guidance via Zoom. In the Deep Dive, I incorporate all my skills, drawing from my vast repertoire of tools and 20+ years of training in and teaching somatic practices, embodied mindfulness, and really smart, neurologically savvy tools.

For whom? For brave adults on a path of awakening, ready to dive deep into embodied living, and for those who know that “body work” is really whole-person, whole-life work

When? 3 months of inspired 1:1 support begins when we set our first session date. (I recommend starting in February/March or September/October.)

Where? We’ll either meet at my SLC office or over skype/zoom if you’re not local.

What? 3 months of personally tailored support for your living a satisfying, authentic, fully embodied life. We address your body, your movement patterns, your attentional habits, and your inner-life with a powerfully effective and integrative approach. Includes 2 1:1 sessions per month over 3 months (a total of 6 sessions) + curated resources for your personal use at home.

How? Embodied Movement practices & brilliant Feldenkrais lessons improve your ability to move with ease & power + reliable ways to grow your grounded centeredness and fully inhabit your body + resolve somatic “problems” and pain;
Embodied Inquiry allows us to partner with your inner wisdom & your wealth of inner resources to reclaim your inner authority and hone ways of accessing your own wise inner guidance;
Embodied Meditation allows you to grow your awareness, presence, wisdom, sanity & ability to embrace life.

Why? You’re ready for powerful, positive change. Ready to live as you know you would if you could. Because the world needs you at your best and the world needs your gifts. Why wait?

Investment?
$995

Different than working with a life coach, the effects go much deeper

as we include and integrate this work in your body.

 

Your attitudes and your posture? Totally connected.

The pain spots in your body and how you relate to yourself and the world? Yep. Connected.

The feeling that life is hard and the way you move more effortfully and less gracefully than you might like? Totally connected.

And totally workable, changeable, and powerfully educational!

Different than working with the body alone, as with a massage therapist or personal trainer, we integrate what’s coming up in your body with the rest of your life, including your intentions for how you want to live.

It’s such powerful stuff. I can’t wait to share it with you!!!!
A year from now, one thing is certain. You’ll be a year older.

  • Will the same old stuff be holding you back?
  • Will the tired approach of “fixing yourself” still be having its way with you?
  • Will you still be living mostly in your head?
  • Will your body still seem like an object or a foreign country (down there below your neck) which you need someone else’s help to fix?
  • Will you be moving more or less gracefully?
  • With greater or less efficiency and power?
  • Will you be more bravely friendly with all parts of yourself or have a continuing battle within?
  • Will you be more centered and grounded or less?
  • Will you seek wisdom outwardly or turn inward when you seek wise counsel?
  • Will your inner life still not feel as coherent and peaceful as you know it could be?

I’d love to share a fresh and powerful approach with you.

If having me as your personal mentor sounds like a great fit, contact me  and we’ll roll from there.

If you’re interested in exploring a deep dive into your body/mind/life, embodying your inner authority and bravely befriending all of it, I’d be delighted to explore the possibility of our working together.

Read what people have shared about this work here. 

Right now I’m working with clients on Thursday and Friday afternoons, February-May and September-December. If you’re interested in diving in, just email me and I’ll send you an intake form with some questions to make sure we’re a great fit for each other. If you’re local, our time can include hands-on Feldenkrais work. If you’re out of town, we can meet on skype or zoom and work in that format. It’s fun. Powerful. Relaxing, enlivening, and possibilitizing.
I’m notorious for answering questions with questions. Why? Because I respect the hell out of you. I believe I can be most helpful when I support you to access your own answers. This isn’t a vague thing…. a skillful question at the right time and with the right kind of support for integration can unlock an inner inquiry process that can change everything.
Please note: I work best with people who are open to learning new perspectives, who appreciate being invited to take both more responsibility and have more respect for themselves; and with people who understand that “bodywork” is inevitably (if it’s to be effective) whole-person and whole-life work. If you’re not really oriented toward a growth path and are longing for someone to just “fix you” without your having to engage much or change? I can say with confidence that I am not the gal for you. :)
Everything I do is rooted in kindness and respect. (I promise to respect you, and I promise to invite you to seriously deepen your kindness and respect for yourself.) My work is rooted in getting intimate with your own body/mind/life. It’s rooted in presence and awareness and my deep respect for your human freedom. Without being rooted in this soil of kindness, clarity, presence, and respect, you won’t be liberated from your stuck places in a lasting way and whatever work you do may even have harmful side-effects. A promise: We won’t be giving any fodder to your inner critic when we work together.

I love to with people who resonate with this integrated approach. The work may challenge you. Certainly it will ask you to learn, to change, and to feel yourself with greater intimacy than before. When we dive deep together, magic can happen. And even after working with people for so many years, it still blows me away. Every time. If you’d like to claim one of the spots in my practice and experience mentoring in this vein, I’d love to hear from you!

My 1:1 Mentoring Programs can be started in February/March or September/October. I invite you to schedule sessions roughly every other week – though sometimes that’s not exact with travel schedules and so forth. Once the commitment is made to dive in, I’ll send you a link where you can schedule all your sessions using my online scheduler and calendar. The first session is usually about 90 minutes long, and subsequent sessions are 60-75 minutes. I invite you to reserve some time before each session to reflect and get clear on your intentions and I also invite you to reserve some time after (15 minutes or more) for integration of the session. Sometimes people like to journal or take notes on their insights or homework suggestions, or simply digest the session by taking a walk. I find bracketing the session with intentional time before and after makes it far more powerful.

If you’d like to apply for a spot to work with me one on one, please email me at erin(at)bodyhappy.com and we can go from there!

We'd love to give you a gift.
