The Boulter Method
6 Month Women's Immersion

The Boutler Method is powerful lineage that was passed down from my mentor, Hal Boutler to me through years of private mentorship and study. Hal was a Somatic Therapist who had over 10,000 hours of one-on-one client sessions alongside hundreds of hours of group workshop, process and healing. In his final years, I had the incredible privilege to learn from Hal, mentor with him and inherit the deep teachings he accumulated over his lifetime. In his passing, Hal requested I find ways to keep the teachings going and pass along what I learned. 

 

Those of you who have worked with me have heard and felt the impact Hal and his teachings have had on my life and the way I work with people; there is a palpable energy that is carried by the work that has been passed down and this container is an opportunity to dive deeper into the lineage of teachings. When we immerse ourselves in this way, the teachings come alive within you and your life begins to change. With this change, those of you who work with clients, you will be able to easily reflect this work into what you are already doing, for when we are a lived embodiment of the work, it pours from us no matter what we do. This is the real goal. Not to train the mind, but to become a living, embodied vessel for what is possible: This is level 1. For those who complete level 1 and do not know how to apply the work  or how to begin sharing this work with others confidently, level 2 will be offered.

All Hands In

All weekends are in-person and take place in Blind Bay, Shuswap BC. You must commit to ALL weekends. If you are not able to make every weekend, please do not apply. Thank you <3 

 

Weekend #1 ~ The Body as the Healer 

    Embodiment, Boundaries + Containment

We begin here, for a multitude of reasons; most people have split off or cut off from their body in various ways and have no idea. Bringing awareness to our patterns of holding and dissociating paves the pathway for embodiment to happen. Many of us split/cut off because we have been or felt invaded or abandoned in some way. As we learn to work with our body as a container that has boundaries and is able to contain energy and emotions, we can learn how to bring more of ourselves into our body and truly feel what’s happening with ourselves. In this way, the body begins to heal itself… because we are active participants in the process that is already happening! 

 

Weekend #2 ~ The Creation of the Self 

Childhood, Ego + Emotions

Once we learn how we are holding, split off or cut off, it is helpful to understand the why. The why helps us to bring understanding and compassion to ourselves. We are not just wrong and flawed, we are the way we are because we have adopted different strategies to survive our childhood. These adaptive strategies inform the person that we are, the development of our ego and thus, our emotional responses to the things that happen in life. 

Weekend #3 ~ Creating New Pathways (3 nights)

    Rebirthing, Rewiring + Reconnecting 

As we bring awareness and understanding to the ways of being; physically, mentally and emotionally, we can begin the process of creating conscious change. We do this by allowing what is unconscious to come forward into the conscious through ceremony, breath and the most potent practice of all - expressing the truth. From here, we can start to create new ways of parenting ourselves, work with neural plastic states and thus, reconnect to who we were before the world told us who to be. 

 

Weekend #4 ~ The Shadow + The Sacred 

    Relationships, Sexuality + Communication 

As we continue to, layer after layer, work the method, it gives us opportunity to open deeper parts of ourselves. Relationships and sexuality are often where the symptoms of our unhealthy programming show up in our lives and filter to the surface; there is no greater place than relationships where shadow and sacred connection show up and have a chance to be transformed.

Weekend #5 ~ Embodied Spirituality (3 nights)  

 Energy, Conscious Awakening + Transcendence 

 As we leave spiritually bypassing behind us and step into the many layers of truth, we see how the path leads to very much the same place, but in a way that allows for real freedom. We learn, through the path of the self, how to leave the self behind, to expand and broaden our fields and containers to embody more.  

Weekend #6 ~ Ritual Integration

 Ritual, Celebration + Rest as Rebellion  

 From this place of arrival we look to ways to continue to deeply integrate the work into our lives. We look at rest, ways to rest, reasons we don’t rest and also how to bring ritual and celebration into our lives. We tune into the ways we are tuned out; from ourselves, from others and from the natural world. We look for ways to listen more, cultivate presence and being instead of doing; for real! Fully embodied.

  • Strategies/practices for rewiring your nervous system

I am blessed to be able to offer this immersion on the beautiful land my partner and I steward on the Secwépemc territory of BC. Part of the beauty of this time together is the ability to drop into this land; endless forest behind us and epic lake in front of us. In addition to receiving from the teachings, and each other, one is able to receive so deeply from the land.
