BodySong Wellness Coaching

BodySong Wellness

The BodySong Wellness program includes:

  • One-hour coaching sessions, usually weekly, but sometimes more or less often.
  • Optional bodywork sessions
  • E-mail support between sessions
  • Handouts and other materials

(This program is a work in progress. If it sounds interesting to you, please speak with me about scheduling a free discovery session to explore what it could look like for you.  You can contact me at lilykmorris(@)gmail.com.)

In the BodySong Wellness program I will support you to:

  • Love yourself unconditionally.
  • Discover and choose foods and physical exercise and rest that make you feel (and look!) fabulous.
  • Explore the areas of career, personal relationships and spirituality, and create the life of your dreams.
  • Allow your body to return to its naturally balanced state of health that is your birthright.

I will also provide a safe space for you to:

  • Get re-acquainted with your true nature.
  • Practice speaking your truth and being fully self-expressed.
  • Heal from trauma stored in the body – through massage, craniosacral therapy, movement or song.
  • Be wild, silly, shy, joyful, awkward, playful, dorky, sexy, intelligent, gorgeous, angry, funny, sad, weird or whatever you are experiencing in the present moment.

I will encourage you to:

  • Be courageous.
  • Be kind to yourself.
  • Be gentle with yourself.
  • Take chances and try things even if you are scared of what might happen. I often find that what might happen if I don’t try is an even more terrifying alternative.
  • Get to know your comfort zone and push the edges of it.
  • Challenge and test and explore your beliefs – make sure they are still current, relevant, and reflect your experience in life.
