Sheryl Fatse About

Sheryl attributes her deep compassion for others wellbeing to her own waking-up to the power of vulnerability. She herself is a trauma survivor and now shares and teaches a somatic parts-work: a mind-body healing approach for self-discovery and healing.  As she has found her own ability to thrive, she invites clients to cultivate Maitri, which is unconditional friendship with oneself : guiding them to reconnect with their body and the desires of their heart, to set an intention or “sankalpa” reflecting what is deeply longed for, and to peel away and release blocks of what feels heavy or dutiful. As burden is released, Self energy shifts and flows, to amplify light and joy.
