• Serving from an empty cu​p?

    I support people who are making a difference in the world through activism and advocacy. I know firsthand that social justice work can take an emotional toll and I guide and support do-gooders.

    Does this sound like You?

    • Are you taking a sabbatical from the news because you are so overwhelmed? 
    • Do you take an extra 10 minutes in the shower just so you can be alone for a litle while?
    • Are you not answering the phone because you have no gas left in your tank? 
    • Are you giving so much to a bigger mission that you have sacrificed your health and relationships? 
    • Do you feel like you live in two worlds and that no one understands you and your experiences of being racially and culturally marginalized?
    • Do you seem to make all the effort in your relationships to the point of burnout and resentment? 

    ​I can help You:

    • Stop the Burnout-Cycle 
    • Get Your Energy Back so you can Make a Positive Impact on the World 
    • Develop More Fulfilling and Satisfying Relationships
    • Feel more integrated with your complete and true identity

    Meet Zeshan

    Zeshan is a Somatic Practitioner who loves supporting people who want to make a difference in this world through anti-racism, activism, and social justice advocacy. She knows this work can take an emotional toll on a person and she wants to guide and support do-gooders.

Her passion is supporting Black, Brown, Indigenous, and People of Color and members of other marginalized communities through her education, training, experiences, and gifts...

     

     

    Experience

    Zeshan earned her law degree from The Catholic University, Columbus School of Law. She worked at Civil Rights organizations in Washington DC, before she transitioned into the world of body-oriented healing. She trained and became Certified as a Yoga Teacher from Sky House Yoga in 2013. She studied Somatic Healing at The Core Energetics Institute based in New York and earned her Certification as a Certified Core Energetics Practitioner in 2018.

    Zeshan is also an Anti-Racist Group Facilitator and Mentor for Racial Equity. She has published an ebook for white practitioners and therapists teaching them how to better work with People of Color in their client sessions. The book is called, "When Helping is Not Helping: A Somatic Approach to Working with Clients of Color." It is available for purchase (per download) on this website.

     

    What I learned

    In my work with BBIPOC clients in particular, I learned that my clients did not have a safe space to release emotions which include anger, sadness, frustration, and fear. I know as a person living in a brown-skinned body that my life experience is different from that of a person living in a white-skinned body in the United States.

     

    I discovered that working with a body-based approach was a powerful method to get to the root of of issues and heal and transform them in ways that life coaching and traditional therapy had not.

     

    Through this work, I learned to let in the love I deserve, and to let go of people and situations that did not meet my new standards of fulfillment.

  • What to Expect

    What to Expect in a Somatic (Body-Oriented) Healing Session

    I work a little differently..

    Sessions include talking/conversation and may include some interventions that open up segments in the body to get the energy flowing. Alot of the work is intuitive and I will use my deep listening skills when working with you. Each session may look different but to give you an idea..

     

    Some techniques we use but are not limited to:

    • Breathwork: I may ask you to exhale and inhale in a particular way to help shift your state of mind and body. 
    • Movement Exercises: I may ask you to move your physical body and/or use tools to get your energy flowing. 
    • Hands-on Techniques: This may be something different than what you are use to. I may use hands-on techniques to support your work. I will always ask for your permission. 
    • Vocalization: I may ask you to use your voices and sound to help you express yourself more fully. 

    Self-Care Video:

    Here is a Self-Care video to give you an idea of how I work..

    If you are an activist, you may be someone who gives to the point of exhaustion. I have made this video to provide you with a self-care experience to help you learn how to recharge. Click on the video and enjoy.
