Releasing Negative Patterns

Mourning Wore Her (constructed garment and movement working together to release emotion)

The purpose of my case study work that led me to the Succurro Fellowship was to develop personal systems that helped counteract the avoidance of truths. No matter how in touch or self aware we might be, I think patterns develop that help us look the other way - that help us avoid the tough stuff. Sometimes this can feel better in the moment, but it keeps us in a fight or flight state, which perpetuates the difficult behavior cycles. My case studies have been effective in helping me address difficult truths that exist in the physical realm. 

Breakthrough sessions have been an incredible resource for addressing behavior patterns that I am not proud of. Breakthrough helps me access, and layer, my past, present, and future in one moment. This helps rid guilt about the past and fear about the future. It requires that I take 100% responsibility for my actions while also forgiving myself and nurturing my wounds. 

This work is helping me understand the energetic power required to develop a behavioral pattern, and in turn the energetic power required to release that pattern. 

This work is helping me let go of the tough stuff that I believe was with me long before I existed in the body that I’m in today, while also giving me the confidence and knowing that is leading me to use my body and the way that it moves to release these energetic patterns.
