About Sam Bean


I hold a compassionate, loving space for those who want to mindfully explore their internal landscape. With gentle guidance and attunement I will support you in newly discovering yourself, shifting beliefs that no longer serve you and helping you solidify new ways of being in the world. Together we pay attention to your thoughts, sensations, emotions, images, impulses and memories to access unconscious material and work with it experientially in the present moment. 


You will have the opportunity to slow down and mindfully study your whole system (body, mind and spirit) enabling you to sink into your unconscious and understand yourself on a much deeper level than in normal consciousness.  After you have witnessed what happens for you automatically, you will have more ability to make different choices for yourself.  By making these subtle shifts, you will change your life.   


I utilize Hakomi principles of non-violence; truth; mindfulness; the interconnectedness of all things internally and externally;  trusting in each person's unique organization and that everyone will naturally unfold and evolve. 


I have been doing personal growth work for over 20 years, and am a graduate of the Hakomi Institute with post-graduate training in character maps and attachment, the later of which I have a natural aptitude for. Additionally, I have attended hundreds of hours of workshops in 5 Rhythms Dance, and have participated in and co-facilitated Authentic Movement for many years.


I have a special interest in sexuality; I am passionate about changing the relationship we (as a culture) have with our sexuality.  I also have many years of experience with issues related to open relationships and offer compassion, acceptance and wisdom with this often difficult, emotionally challenging terrain.  


I am certified in Somatica Coaching for more information: SomaticaInstitute.com

About the Hakomi Method

Hakomi is a holistic approach to self discovery and transformation and includes body awareness as an essential component. The body serves as a resource that reflects and stores formative memories and core beliefs, and as such provides a significant access route to core material. Utilizing mindfulness to bring attention to subtle sensations, emotions, images, impulses and thoughts, we directly contact the unconscious. Once brought into consciousness, core material can be re-evaluated and transformed when appropriate. For more information see http://www.hakomiinstitute.com or http://www.meta-trainings.com/.
