Meet your Facilitator….


I’m Tele Darden. I’ve been a bodyworker for over a decade and for many of those years, even as my skills and experience grew, it felt like something was missing from my work. 

From the outside, my practice looked successful, but the truth is, I was so disconnected from myself that wasn’t able to fully show up authentically for my clients, I struggled with boundaries, and even though my clients had good results, my work felt unsatisfying and I was often exhausted. 

I attended training after training looking for answers. I realized that just like I had to continue to practice the advanced skills I was learning, I also had to practice going even deeper into my own healing.  I learned that the healers path required repeatedly visiting the places within that often felt uncomfortable and messy before I could really show up for myself and the people I wanted to serve. So much of that inner work felt like I was stumbling around in circles in the dark.

Over time, things began to change.  I was able to map out the journey. Trauma resolution and embodiment work brought clarity. The hero’s journey, the chakra system, and the rhythms of nature became my guides. I found that what seemed so chaotic before actually had structure and predictability.  

My boundaries got better, I learned how to rest and protect my energy, I started loving my work again. I realized what I valued the most about the trainings was that I had the time and space and permission to work with myself, in relationship with other practitioners who were doing the same. 

I want this for you. I’m offering this workshop as a space where you, as practitioner, come first. I want to give you time to shift the focus away from modality and technique and onto your own behind the scenes work.  I’m excited to share the opportunity to grow into an even more embodied healer, someone who lives and works with a depth of wisdom, authenticity, stability, professionalism and compassion that sets you apart as a truly excellent practitioner.

Can’t make the dates, but are interested in attending the next round?
