Sometimes, only individual sessions will do.
When you want more privacy to explore deep issues than you would have in a group workshop, Erva offers 90-minute one-on-one Zoom sessions. It’s a time to delve into your inner landscape and explore the intergenerational traumas that affect your life today. A safe and sacred journey with Erva accompanying you, supporting and facilitating as you voice your experience.
What Happens in a Private Session?
It’s a surprisingly simple process for the depth of the work it allows! Your session starts with a conversation as you describe what’s blocking you from your fullest life. You may only have a vague idea of what it is, but you know there’s something there.
At some point, together, we open the door to tap into your body/mind/spirit, and begin to tease apart all the information that it has held for so long. We explore how much information comes from your lived experience and how much from the residue of intergenerational trauma. It’s a journey of ongoing discovery.
Come with an open mind and open heart! Erva is willing to answer your questions, as she is able; you may encounter some questions for which you need to find the answers yourself.
Everything that happens is by your consent only – if you feel overwhelmed, and/or when you feel complete, the process ends. Erva will offer some suggestions for integration and follow-up self-care.
Important: An individual session is not:
- A traditional indigenous shamanic journey
- A substitute for physical or psychological health care
- A one-time solution to complex and long-standing issues
How Do I Prepare for a Session?
You’ll want to be in a safe, private place with no distractions (close the door, turn off the TV and your phone). You might want to have water, tissues, a wastebasket, and a journal and pen close at hand. And it’s best if you avoid psychoactive substances before your session.
If you want to have a close friend or support person with you as you experience your journey, just let Erva know.
How Can I Schedule a Session (and When)?
Erva offers 90-minute session between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and weekends.
Payment of $90 per session, by Venmo, locks in your time slot. To schedule, email Erva or call 215-877-5158.
What Happens If I Miss My Session?
Life can be messy and conflicts can arise. If you will not be able to attend your session, notify Erva as soon as possible beforehand. You can reschedule up to a month following the original appointment.
