Resourcing for Clients - Below are some resources I use with clients in sessions to help with reintegration with the body and emotions. This page is ever changing and growing.  Keep coming back to see what's new. 

5 Point Breathing - This can be helpful to slow down and overwhelmed system or to just begin introducing someone back to their body and awareness.  (developed by Tyler Orr, LPC-MHSP)

Healing Light of God - This is an adaptation of Francine Shapiro's LightStream Technique that can be used with Christians who are looking for the integration of scripture in their therapy. 

Centering - This exercise is from sensorimotor.  It can help when a client's energy is in hyperarousal to invite them back into a centered present place.  It can also be an introduction into connecting to the body.

Intro to Centering Prayer - This prayer comes from Psalm 46:10.  It is a mindful practice of centering ourselves with God using scripture.  It is a type of Lectio Devina.  This particular exercise comes from Friar Richard Rohr 


Orienting - This is an exercise that can introduce us into coming back to the present moment.  This exercise uses all 5 senses. 

Belovedness Prayer - This is an adaptation from a prayer by Henri Nouwen.  It is an introduction into a mindful awareness which allows us to experience God in a deeper way.  As you get better at mindfulness you can make the prayer longer between each phrase. 

Pendulation - This exercise comes out of Somatic Therapies with Pat Ogden and Peter Levine.  It is an exercise that can begin to get us use to being aware of what is happening in our bodies and that more than one thing can be happening at one time.  The focus is locating both disturbance and calm in the body and pendulating between the two places.
