“Mat-work” is one of the core processes of Innate Wisdom Connection. It is an opportunity for an individual (or couple or other combinations) to work through whatever is coming up to be worked through in safety and with facilitation. Everybody else is also participating in various ways and shares in and benefits from the healing journey that unfolds.
Mat-work is an experiential process which is directed by the innate healing wisdom of the person (or people) whose process it is. Thus no one mat-work will look like another.
Deepen your understanding and experiences of healing with this nourishing and experiential one-day workshop. Including discussions, sharings, journeys, healings, and Innate Wisdom Connection’s unique blend of effective experiential processes.
For thousands of years, the medicine men and women of indigenous cultures have understood the physical and spiritual inter-connectedness of all things. This workshop follows the Shamanic perspective on healing. It is about restoring balance, right relationship with the earth and with Spirit and retrieving the aspects of Self (or Soul) that become fragmented through difficulties, trauma, neglect, pressure, fears or other experiences.

“Words can’t express how wonderful and transformational this was! I feel so fortunate to have been a part of it. I am so grateful for such talented, inspired and supportive facilitators who created such a safe transformational space and opportunities – big big thanks Phoenix & Mike!! I am also very grateful to have been there and connected with such a wonderful, courageous and enriching group of fellow participants” – Denise xx
When l sat on the mat of transformation, I remember sharing a few stories I wondered at times if l was rambling but then l discovered they all played a role in allowing me to go deeper to unfold the essence of what l needed and to trust that if I didn’t know my innate wisdom did, and sometimes it wasn’t what l thought l needed but the experience was what l needed in order to heal and to create new ways of thinking and being. I have received so much more on the other side of the experience and changes simply unfold in their own time, my awareness to check in or understand situations with clarity that the work is ongoing and the insights keep presenting.time seems irrelevant but the healing keeps unfolding so for this l am grateful. Its important to know it’s your experience what every that is for you. Phoenix and Mike check in constantly while holding the space. And on the other side. I was held/ l was safe/ I was sooo supported by Phoenix and Mike and the group participants in the most amazing way. Was there judgment no was there compassion yes all within a session. I have to say there have many sessions over the past year you just never know what your innate wisdom needs but when l trust the process and simple allow the possibilities for me have been endless and l know my self much more. Thanks Phoenix and Mike l am looking forward to the next workshop KNOWING ALL IS WELCOME HERE.” – Liz Kinnane
