    As a licensed social worker (LCSW) and registered somatic movement therapist (RSMT), I bring over 25 years of clinical expertise as a psychotherapist specializing in trauma and somatic work to my role as UZAZU’s clinical advisor. I am an UZAZU co-trainer and certified practitioner, helping develop, guide, and deliver our live & online training events and our 10-month certification program; and I actively support our UZAZU community.

    In my clinical work as a psychotherapist I bring UZAZU, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Body-Mind Centering®, embodied polyvagal theory, ego state work, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR) to my sessions with clients. As a Somatic Movement Therapist I integrate UZAZU with Body-Mind Centering® as well other somatic and movement-based approaches to embodied work.

    I also provide consultation and professional development workshops to helping professionals, exploring the integration of somatic/body-based work with psychotherapy. I’ve presented workshops on Polyvagal Theory at Kripalu and Omega Institute, and have been a regular co-presenter & collaborator with Deb Dana, an internationally renowned speaker and educator on Polyvagal Theory.

    In addition to my profession as a psychotherapist and somatic movement therapist, I teach somatic approaches to improvisational dance and contact improvisation, with an extensive background and training in yoga, bodywork, theater, and contact improvisation. I am also a DJ for our beloved ecstatic dance community, here in Portland, Maine.

    I’m currently hunkered down during COVID with my partner Jason and his 12 year old son, as well as 2 cats and a senior dog, and with my recent-ish college graduate daughter just around the corner. My therapy website is debgrant.net. I love UZAZU and delight in being a part of the UZAZU team!

    I serve the connectedness of the Human with self and the World. This statement was born in 2016 at the EFC Russia. The magic is that UZAZU bridges the attention to what's going on in a person's Inner World with what's in their Environments.

    In the past I co-founded a training-consulting business, now I lead individual and group sessions using the embodiment approach. Together with the man I love, we are doing complex projects to transform the culture of companies and reorient them to work in self-organization/self-management (living or teal companies).

    The main types of requests that clients come to me for individual sessions:
    • What's next? Understanding where I want to go in life and how: choosing a direction, mission/purpose, prioritizing projects, setting and achieving goals.
    • Problems in relations with other people (colleagues, partners, children, wives, husbands). What to do?
    • Too much stuff, can't cope: high stress levels, how to preserve myself, emotional swings, can't keep my boundaries.
    • How to be myself in relations with the team/group: it is difficult to express myself to the group, underestimating or devaluing myself and my abilities, finding inner strength.
    • Making difficult and complex decisions.
    • Working with families: how a mother can let her child go to kindergarten, school while remaining calm and "good" mother.
    • The first persons of companies - shareholders: finding a shared vision, finding sources of inner strength, aligning the top team.

    I invite you to an introduction meeting, during which you will be able to understand how effective and easy it is for you to work with me, and I will understand how beneficial I can be to you.
    See you!

    As a somatic educator and embodiment coach, I combine my knowledge and experience of movement, the breath, awareness, creativity and the imagination to help people reframe their current challenges and access more ease and flow so that they can move towards their goals with confidence and joy. I help people to understand how their nervous system works, so that they can recognise and shift their embodied response when they become dysregulated. By teaching people how their bodies affect their mind and vice versa, they have more ability to choose how they respond to things vs simply reacting to them. This leads to more acceptance, focus and empowerment in all areas of life.

    My current mission is to bring my lifelong learnings as a business executive and my coaching and UZAZU skills to benefit my clients. I work with individuals and leaders that feel stuck in their lives, careers and businesses, to become aware of the relationship between their current challenges and the way they are observing and showing up in the world. I coach them on how to become better observers and from there to shift into a more resourceful way of being that better serves their life, career and business goals. I use a range of coaching and facilitation methods, grounded in neuroscience and the science of living systems. The science is framed by ontology, the philosophical study of what it means to be human and live a meaningful and fulfiilling life, embodied through practices offered by the powerful framework and methods of UZAZU Embodied Intelligence.

    I have personally experienced and witnessed healing that transforms suffering. It’s astounding what happens when the energy that was stuck, and creating pain in our lives, starts to flow. I have seen people able to live their lives more fully and with more ease. It’s rarely a straight line and it’s not always pretty but it’s worth it. I believe in our innate desire and capacity to feel better.

    I help people who are struggling with painful, repeating life patterns that are in the way of their goals and the life they want to live. The counselling and coaching approaches I use go directly to where you want to experience change. This is focused work – we use creative ways to help shift your life’s path.

    I have worked with youth, adults and families as well as organizations and networks for 20 years. I have training in frameworks and therapeutic modalities including anti-oppression, addictions, emotional freedom techniques, expressive arts, family therapy, mindfulness, narrative therapy, process work, psychodynamic therapy, trauma counselling, and youth engagement.

    I have also designed and delivered training and workshops on many topics for those working on the frontlines in the social service sector.

    I work from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework and strive for curiosity, compassion and humility. It’s important to me to work collaboratively and I integrate different tools and approaches based on where you are in the moment and what will have the most impact.

    I have always been passionate about my work and the difference it makes in people's lives! This was true at the beginning of my career, when I worked in sport and led the development of training materials for coaches; later on, when I became a partner in an international consulting firm that specialized in organizational development and change; and now, when my focus is on coaching managers to be more effective as both managers and leaders.

    I have been a Professional Certified Coach for more than 10 years. My clients come from a broad range of countries and cultures, and most are middle- and senior-level managers in international organisations who want to be more effective in their lives and in their work. They want results with more ease and grace and with less stress.

    UZAZU Embodied Intelligence is a brilliant addition to my Ontological coaching base! I use a variety of other coaching approaches (Gestalt, Strozzi somatic coaching, PowerCoaching) and leadership frameworks to help my clients step into their leadership role, manage difficult conversations, and show up more consistently at their fully embodied best.

    I am certified as an International Systemic Team Coach, and in addition to being licensed to use many psychometric assessments, I recently completed certification to use The Leadership Circle 360.

    Somatic Coach, (Sexological) Bodyworker, Massage Therapist

    English, German

    As a Sexological Bodyworker and Somatic Sex Educator I work mainly with people who want to explore their sexuality - either because there is an issue they want to resolve or just because they are curious and think, there must be "more".
    What I find so fascinating about sexuality is, that it's one of those "vertical" topics - it touches on so many central areas of our being - our self-love, our body image, our gender identification, our sexual orientation,, our body awareness, our deep longing for connection and intimacy, our capacity for cultivating pleasure, our courage to own our desires, our capacatiy to say yes and no and set boundaries - the list goes on.

    And yet in many contexts sexuality is excluded when we talk about ourselves. when we express ourselves. There often is no language, there is shame, we don't have a culture tp explore this topic outside our romantic relationships, where it's difficult to really focus on yourself - as in this setting it's always already a relationship thing.

    In my sessions I offer my clients a space of exploration, a space of permission to discover who you are as a sexual and human being.

    UZAZU has given me the tools to incorporate a wider range of topics in my coaching and to approach a topic from more angles, What's so exceptional about UZAZU as a modality (amongst other things) is, that it allows you to track whatever issue you want to work with simultanously in your body, mind and awareness and to work with all these elements in a system that makes sense. How do your stories play out in your body? How do your sensations and emotions inform the theories you come up with about your life and yourself and how can we work and play with all those elements in a safe enough container?

    I am based in Berlin, Germany where I live with my partner within a polyarmorous network. I believe that each of us has a responsibility to work on our own stuff but that the ultimate goal is to build communities and to contribute to a more just and joyful society.

    I invite women to slow down....
    and look at themselves and their lives through a different lens—
    a lens of kindness, belonging and enough-ness—
    instead of perfectionism, people-pleasing or proving.
    I encourage them to connect to their core self and challenge the stories they tell themselves.
    As they wrestle with the truth, they grow on the inside, and learn how to bring their full selves to their relationships and interactions.
    They become the women they were originally created to be.
    Wholehearted, generous, powerful, connected, taking up space.

    I do this work is through teaching you to connect with and listen to your body. The process is taken to an even deeper level by partnering with horses. There’s no riding involved and no horse experience is required. Horses offer a powerful reflection of how we show up mentally, emotionally, and energetically.

    I work with high achievers and successful leaders who are curious, self-aware and want to make a difference in the world. While they have accomplished a lot, they also feel overwhelmed, overcommitted, and stuck in overgiving. I help them regain control of their life and enjoy more meaningful relationships with themselves, their families, and those they work with.

    Maine, United States

    My gifts are in attuning and collaborative play. I offer space where there is permission to be honest about the challenging topic of sexuality.

    My work as a professional includes 19 years experience being a massage therapist, a holistic sexuality educator, and a workshop facilitator focusing on intimacy and relationship. I am a somatic explorer and that is where Uzazu comes in! I use this modality as a rich platform for individuals who are interested in investigating themselves from a less cerebral place. Helping them into their own brilliant imaginations and perceptions that arise from using the modes of Uzazu, among other movement meditations, that allow people to arrive into the universe and the wisdom of their bodies.

    My views on sexuality and its overlap with Uzazu:

    Sexuality is a phenomena that feels like a portal to some of the richest concerns and particularities of a person. Often when people ask me about working in the field of sexuality, there is an assumption that we will be talking about the act of sex, the fruits of desire, and setting goals for better sexual outcomes. Not really. Sure, sometimes, but more it is our sense of self, how we relate to others, relationship patterns, our confidence, ethics, how to be or stay in our bodies powerfully, and what we want to create, that are much more the topics that root themselves in this so called field of sexuality.
    I will both speak frankly and easefully about perversions we all share and the ones we don’t. I will laugh with you about the cultural narratives and expectations that you may be running into. I will most importantly give you permission to explore what is real for you now about your own sexuality and I will help you move to more clarity about what you are creating with the body you have now.

    Using Uzazu helps my clients find themselves, find their beliefs, discover more about how to do relationships with both the inanimate and animate worlds around them. Exploring sexuality is both physical and spiritual, relational and individual, giving and receiving. I offer a space where we can collaborate on enhancing your relationship with your connection with this life and your sexuality inside of that.

How? By tapping into our innate, childlike sense of curiosity, play, experimentation, and ultimately trust in ourselves, to arrive at a place of ease, joy, and freedom.

    What do you have to “let go of” in order to create space for what wants to come in? What old structures do you need to shed to allow an opening for the abundance that exists within you, without having to “figure it out” and “make it happen?”

    My experiences taught me deep respect for people, for their inner power and resilience. I gained deep appreciation for the innate wisdom that's available to us when we have the conditions to listen and connect to ourselves.
    Each one of us may provide help or need help at different times. We have so much in common. Our structure, our needs, and our truths are very similar. Yet we are each a unique individual with our unique life experiences and history, our beliefs and strategies, our choices, and our unique blind spots.
    As an embodiment coach and a yoga and mindfulness teacher I facilitate clients to connect and listen to their body as a guiding source of truth and wisdom. I utilize the UZAZU Embodied Intelligence frame work to help clients recognize their modes of being and expand their capacity to shift their states with ease and freedom, so that they really have a choice in how to show up in each precious moment of life.

    I work on the intersection of embodied presencing, choreographic and visual thinking tools in design co-creation.

My background is in interactive multimedia, graphic design/illustration, and dance/choreography. I was trained and worked as Project and Competency Coach for Design students, social design (real life), Industrial Design Department at the TU/e, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. I developed extracurricular assignments for the application of the language of the dancing body, improvisation and movement awareness, into the design research process. I’m a Certified GyrokinesisⓇ Teacher Trainer, which is a movement method that combines principles of Yoga, Dance, Tai-Chi, Chi-Kun, acupressure, and swimming. I’m a Vipassana Meditation practitioner and I’m following on the practice of Dhamma Art and the Social Presencing Theater, from the Presencing Institute.

    I have a strong belief in inner intuition, movement, and embodied awareness/interaction, as vital sources for creativity, wellbeing, and change.
    I want to contribute to the awareness of embodiment into research, education, creation, science, technology and business practices, and I believe that UZAZU, is a State of the Art tool to reach this goal.

    Bucharest, Romania

    After 14 years of marketing and communication experience (as an employee, freelancer and entrepreneur), in 2019 I had a turning point and went back to myself, my values and life purpose.

    I launched Ikigai Dojo, and started to help people come closer to themselves, their true potential, life purpose and joy of living through psychology and embodiment practices. Ikigai is the Japanese concept that means "a reason for being", "a meaning for life", "the reason you get up in the morning".

    The programs I'm currently working on are Find your Ikigai (purpose), Have no fear, Embodiment Romania and Embodiment Circle for Recovering Perfectionists — from Inner Critic to Self-Love.

    My background is in sociology-psychology, integrative psychotherapy, and Ki-Aikido.

    Art and Movement Facilitator

    Ever since I was a child, the realm of the unseen, of the Mystery has fascinated me. Magic, alchemy, the ethereal and spiritual realms inspire and continue to guide me on my mission here on Earth. In working with movement, art, sound and the natural elements, there are infinite doorways and windows to the Soul and it's blueprint.
    From various paths in life, like the business and hotel sector, kundalini yoga and mantra practitioner, sisterhood and women's retreats, postnatal care and rebozo work, to visionary art and my own personal struggles and victories in life, I have picked up tools and gathered them all in my pocket or cocoon.
    Now with UZAZU as guide and treasure map, they are coming together to aid others in their journey and butterfly around.
    Theme's as sovereignty, empowerment, transformation, transition, vibrating your unique frequency and voice, enlivening your creative flow, role adaptation, plus-motherhood, fertility, burn-out and bore-out, auto-immune and chronic diseases, intimacy and sexuality, grief and loss are familiar to me but I also love to keep an open horizon to the unfamiliar.
    My approach is gentle, warm and often voiced as soothing, restorative, watery.
    I truly believe each and every one of us here is needed and called on Earth to fulfill their own individual mission within the Collective mission and it will be my honour to walk with you along your path.

    Hello impact-seeker!

    I'm Susanna Holowati, your change facilitator!
    Let me guess: you're a wholehearted professional with values, ideas and you want to make this work/world a better place. Easy? Clear? Not always...

    Using embodiment and leadership practices I help self-starters like you to grow beyond brainy boxes: being mind-/body- and impactful in life and at work.

    As certified Embodied Facilitator and UZAZU Embodied Intelligence Practitioner I bring together +7 years as a project manager in international education and media organisations, +8 years as a trainer, and +15 years of embodied practices. As a passionate dancer I also teach contact improvisation to groups.

    Based in Freiburg, Germany near France and Switzerland I work with change-makers all over Europe.

    Working with me in person or online you can safely express yourself without a filter, be curious, brave and grow. Going way beyond the theory, my embodied methods like UZAZU will help you shift your attitude towards challenges and develop a new skill-set for the long run. You'll tune into your mind and body to practice and integrate new ways of feeling, being and acting.

    Are you ready to bring positive change to the world?
