imagine justice in your body

hello embodied friends for liberation,

we are living at a threshold of change. there is so much going wrong and simultaneously there’s so much going right. building a shared framework which includes our evolutionary edges and embodied brilliance is a necessity of this moment. as the waves continue to roll in - our resilience can be rooted in flexible open-hearted strength.

embodied liberation is an exploration of:

  • evolutionary ideas which encompass love

  • assisting our nervous system to grow capacities beyond fight, flight and freeze strategies

  • accessing our lineage and descendants for wisdom, guidance and power

What folks say about working with Sage:

"Sage has a heart as big as the ocean. What more can I say.... she lives breathes walks and talks SE and it is obvious."

"Big fan. Very contagious energy. I felt like it was more than just listening, but also a whole body experience."

"In the 29 years that I've been living with that trauma, I had never felt so safe and held with the experience, I'm still feeling blown away by our session and your ability to be with me. So much gratitude!!!"

"I love working with you. I love your openness and humility and measured thoughtful responses. I'm glad to have you as a kindred spirit on this path at the same time."

"Sage was awesome, l made connections that still surprise me."

"I love how lively and spontaneous Sage is, and really valued the safety aspect for me of Sage's gender queerness. I felt profoundly seen and heard."

"Sage embodies SE in her cells, heart, and beautiful connection and sharing. She is always genuinely interested in what I say and has helpful relevant ideas. She is not in a rush and has no agenda but to share the space and see what arises."

"Provides a lovely and safe container and has a great SE style. Very sensitive to my needs."

"Sage creates such a safe and happy environment, where I feel fully accepted and safe."
