TIM WEAVER

Aloha!
I am a full time Love Revolutionary, who is deeply committed to providing guidance to other humans to help heal their Central Nervous System Traumas and expand their consciousness, physical wellbeing, and pleasure!

I have been walking the path of personal and communal awakening for almost 30 years, studying spiritual disciplines, practicing natural building and permaculture, growing and preparing plant medicines for healing, living in intentional spiritual community, and I have extensively trained and become licensed in Western Clinical Psychotherapy, numerous Massage Therapy techniques, Watsu and Wataflow, and other healing modalities.

I am currently focusing my energy on Somatic therapies and practices that bypass the cognitive mammalian cortex conscious thought process to focus on accessing the Limbic Piscean/Reptilian brain, where we as humans store ALL of our Peak Experiences....the Traumas which set our fight/flight/freeze patterns of response as well as the transformational/psychedelic/integrative Transcendent experiences of Peak Consciousness.

I utilize a variety of techniques from many sources, including EMDR, EFT, Tantric practices, Cranial Sacral techniques, Sexological Bodywork, Wataflow/Watsu, and the conscious presencing of unconditional loving witness to facilitate CNS access and healing.
