Healing Trauma, Life Challenges, & Attachment Injuries Through Connection 

The basis of our work focuses on attachment science, the impact of trauma, our fundamental needs for survival and various aspects of our identity often overlooked as people often only see what's on the surface. 

What's beneath the surface are things we ourselves might not even be aware of on a conscious level, despite our body's attempts to draw our attention to it.
 

  • Our need for authenticity and self-expression

  • Our need for secure attachments, and connections to others

  • Connection to self, others, mind, body, spirit, and soul

  • Trauma, including intergenerational trauma 

  • Desire and need to love and be loved

The Story Behind The Lotus 

The lotus naturally comes in a variety of colours. It grows at its own pace, one petal at a time, emerging through mud and murky surroundings. Its roots are anchored in mud, and it rises above its gloomy environment. Regardless of its roots and context, the lotus remains pure and continues its growth as nature intended. The lotus has a unique daily cycle of life, death, and rebirth. It holds great resistance to its environment. Each night it submerges into the murky river, and re-blooms each morning without residue from its environment.


Despite its durability, the trauma of natural disasters can tear its root system, but the seed survives and can survive for thousands of years without water. After experiencing trauma, the seed scatters the water in seeking to restore abundance, once normal water levels return it reconnects to the earth and begins to grow again.

 

What allows the lotus to continue its growth is its built-in biological awareness of its true essence. Rather than aimlessly scattering the water, it seeks stable grounds where it can safely expose its roots and continue to grow.
