Pain limits your view, but healing creates more freedom, opportunity and expansion.“Erica Jones
Your body is not a machine
You’re not broken and you don’t need to be fixed. Your body is a multidimensional map, showing your inner topography of thoughts, feelings, energy and spirit, in a physical form. You’re a living landscape of depth, texture and color displaying shadows of your past, feelings from the present and hopes for your future.
Pandemic living has changed the global landscape, creating unprecedented work challenges, stress of parenting and educating from home, pressure to pivot your business and re-invent how to live and thrive. All of this stress, pain and worry is an overlay that can make your world feel flat and colorless or raw and edgy. Physical pain also creates a feedback loop with emotional stress and spiritual angst, each feeding into the other.
The body doesn’t come with a roadmap showing a direct route from pain to pleasure. Reaching your goals doesn’t follow a linear process either. Joyful family time, nurturing relationships, vibrant body, expanding impact and community contribution can feel distant and unreachable.
Navigating by your Inner Compass allows opportunities for multidimensional healing, creating more ease, freedom and joy in your life. From here, the path towards natural growth and expansion becomes clear.
I’m Erica Jones, curious explorer and wellness strategist
Since 1999 I’ve been exploring ways to heal and thrive. My work evolved from body-based therapies, to mindset, into emotional wellness and finally encompassing mindfulness and spirituality. The wisdom of mind, body, heart and spirit guides my multidimensional approach to healing.
The Inner Compass is foundational to my individual work, group workshops and retreats which incorporate bodywork, mindfulness and movement to access the truth of the body. Coaching, thought work and journaling connects with the mind. Breath, meditation and sound healing open the channel to intuition and spirit. Observing emotions as messengers and feeling energy in the body facilitate connection to heart.
I’ve helped thousands of clients over 20+ years in clinics, resorts, spas, training facilities and corporations relieve stress and pain while creating more passion, purpose and pleasure in their lives and work.
Guiding Your Unique Journey
Reducing stress, anxiety or pain might be the first objective of your journey. Can you imagine reaching a place where you’re nourished, rested and supported as you contribute to the world?
1. Exploring Pain
The body in pain is a harsh, rigid landscape where it is impossible to thrive. There are peaks and valleys, challenges and opportunities that it presents. If the body is a map, examining the location, condition and sensation of the terrain is important before the route to relief can become clear.
2. You Are Here
Instead of doggedly forcing yourself to keep moving when the way forward isn’t clear, there is wisdom in allowing yourself to be right where you are. This offers time for rest, for nourishment and space to observe what’s next. You’ll also avoid frantically running in the wrong direction.
3. Inner Compass
Using the wisdom of your mind, body, heart and spirit as your guides will help you explore your surroundings and get clear on where you want to go and which path to take. This powerful compass allows you to navigate with more power and ease.
4. Mindful Path
You expect sacrifice, stress and pain on the road to your dreams. In fact, you’re in such a hurry to move forward, you’re missing out on enjoying the parts of life you love right now. There are shifts you can make in your life, now to savor each phase of your journey.
