In a world that can be high-stress, socially binding, traumatic, and oppressive, we have found ways to continue to survive through cutting off certain parts of our being from ourselves, and from each other. This fragmentation not only impacts us individually, but also fractures our collective being through breaks in trust, disingenuous actions, and cyclic wounding. But how exactly do we fragment ourselves, and in doing so, divide our broader communities and world? And how can we integrate and heal, and move towards wholeness?

In this month-long program, we will explore the distinctions and mechanisms of fragmentation, how these impact us through the external world as well as internally in our bodies, minds, and spirits. By each of us working with a fragmentation close to us personally, we’ll explore how individual and collective healing weave together by utilizing somatic practice, Integral Coaching, and shamanic work.

The Methodologies:

Integral coaching is a holistic & developmental approach to coaching. This means working with the whole person - taking into account their professional self, their relationships, their emotional self, spiritual self, their bodies and health, and their environments and anything else that affects their worldview and how they experience their lives. This approach recognizes that we're not compartmentalized, and when we fall into patterns and habits in one area of our life, it's going to be linked to many other parts of our experience. This helps us to see blind spots and limiting beliefs, and to try on new perspectives that can help us create new ways of being. 

Somatics sees the self as a unity mind, body, and spirit, and utilizes physical practices that shift behavior over time. As neuroscience now tells us, when we learn that a certain response to a given pressure is repeatedly successful, this response can become so habitual that we will inevitably repeat it down the line--even when that response is no longer appropriate or achieving the desired outcomes. Through somatic practices, we can elicit these same pressures and practice new ways of responding to them that become part of our toolboxes. This process transforms who and how we are in the world.

Shamanic traditions, which have existed globally since time immemorial, engage our full range of senses in both the seen and unseen worlds. Shamanism is powerful partly because it is unique in every cultural context, so to be most effective it must be landed in our current culture.* Shamans share a seeing of all things as alive and interconnected, emphasizing forms of healing and transformation that invite our entire human being to partner with the natural world, our lineages, and realms of spirit. By working at these various levels, shamanism embodies a unity of healing and transformation, where we emerge from our wounds into a self that is more alive and whole. 

*Note: As an initiate in the Tamang Bombo (shamanic) tradition, Tyler leans into these traditions, and honors the lineage, utilizing its various tools and iconography. As a white person working through a historically non-white lineage, it is his constant practice to work to counter cultural appropriation (learn more about Tyler’s approach here). He does not attempt to replicate Tamang or any other non-European/non-white shamanic lineages. Tyler’s work is to re-vitalize shamanic practices in our culture and tailor them to our context, while also leaning into and honoring the lineages and people who trained him, and who have carried this work for generations
