“One thing I appreciate most about working with Anita is her commitment. She is extremely well versed in her work, deeply in tune with the body, and committed to honoring the truth in herself and the world. Her modalities for offering support are unique, and also highly complementary. Through working with her, I’ve gained useful tools for everyday life while also coming back to honoring my own healing process exactly where I am. This in and of itself is incredibly powerful and healing. I am so grateful for my time with Anita and know that she will continue to serve, guide and support me and those around her.”
CREATING RESILIENCY ONLINE
facilitating social connection in online teaching and learning for universities during a time of crisis
This is a time of unprecedented change in higher education. Amidst the passionate political demonstrations against racism and police violence that exploded across the US, our students and faculty are ever more vulnerable to anxiety, mental health challenges, and collective trauma. As universities rapidly moved their courses online in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the crucial role that professors play in supporting students not only intellectually, but also emotionally, is now clearer than ever.
Our online programs use trauma-based pedagogies, the neuroscience of mental health, and pedagogies of social justice and inclusion to help your campus participate effectively in social change by offering inventive, practical solutions for both students and faculty created by Anita Chari and Angelica Singh.
Embodiment Process sessions support you to feel embodied contact with the health at the heart of every symptom, crisis, or challenge that you face in your life. It includes somatically oriented counseling work, Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy, and trauma resolution work. These modalities facilitate the release of long held imprints within your body and psyche.
Counseling and Coaching
While there are now a number of tools available out there to support academics, few of them are somatically based. Rather than focusing on problem solving or productivity, my somatically oriented tools address the underlying imprints in your nervous system that prevent you from feeling connected and creative in your work. Sessions are available via Skype or in-person.
Continuum is a meditative movement practice that has a wide variety of applications: artistic, psychological, medical, physical, and spiritual. At the heart of all of them is a science of creativity itself. I’m a trained Continuum Wellsprings practitioner with more than 500 hours in the field with Conrad and authorized Continuum Movement teachers, and I offer one-on-one instruction in Continuum Wellsprings movement.
